Scrappy and the devil-baby!
24 August 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In a wonderful case of irresponsible parenting, Mom leaves Scrappy to baby-sit Oscar the baby. Scrappy looks to be about 4 himself, so it's not surprising that he ends up having his hands full caring for the kid. However, it turns out the kid is a real nightmare---and he's just awful. Scrappy tries his best, though, to feed, change and lull the little creepy to sleep--and it ain't gonna be easy.

This Scrappy cartoon from Columbia Pictures is pretty well done. The animation is very nice and the cartoon does not suffer from the cuteness that so permeates many 30s cartoons. Instead, it's a bit violent and fun--the sort of stuff kids enjoyed then and now. I just appreciate that it's different--and worth your time.
