THE CARTOON CRYPT: Scrappy in Let’s Ring Doorbells (1935)


I was curious to find some Charles Mintz cartoons, as I haven’t seen many of them. There aren’t a whole lot of them out there on the internets yet… he produced this one for Columbia, and it is directed by Art Davis. Mintz is probably best known these days for screwing Walt Disney out of the character Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. This beautifully animated cartoon starts slow, but boy does it get twisted. Alcoholism, child abduction and endangerment, gunfire, racism… yep, they don’t make ’em like this any more. If you are easily offended, you may not want to watch this one.

Believe it or not, there is a really nice site out there dedicated to Scrappy… SCRAPPYLAND.
