Storyline

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

Spooky and cute, but no one who has seen Walt Disney's "Skeleton Dance" or Max Fleischer's "Snow White" will be impressed

This entry in the long-running, but now forgotten, Scrappy series from the Charles Mintz studio is spooky and cute, but no one who has seen Walt Disney's "Skeleton Dance" (1929) or Max Fleischer's "Snow White" (1933) will be impressed.
