Scrappy tells his little brother a ghost story by the fire as the two of them make popcorn. The scene is the forest. A white sheet-covered ghost chases Scrappy, who is so frightened that he runs through the trees like a buzz saw. It turns out the ghost is only Scrappy's brother on a pair of stilts. The scares aren't over, though. A real ghost chases the boys into a hollow tree where they are met by an elevator-operating ghost, who takes them down far beneath the tree to an underground cave populated by dancing ghosts, some of them jazz players in black sheets. There is even a cigar store Indian ghost. The story, however, proves too scary for either boy. Written by J. Spurlin

Scrappy's Ghost Story (1935)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

The Columbia Scrappy series has pretty much been lost to time as it rarely gets mentioned when people bring up older animated films. This one here tries to cash in on the popularity of horror pictures as Scrappy tries to scare his younger brother by telling him ghosts stories but then real ghosts show up to teach him a lesson. This isn't the greatest short in the world but if you're a fan of animation or the horror genre then you should, at least, find it mildly amusing. The animation is pretty good considering the budget and we get some nice humor when it comes down to scaring the kids. Most of the six-minute running time features the ghosts doing a wide range of dances as the boys get more and more scared.
