YELP WANTED (1931): Scrappy's debut. The original concept was of a child (not just a tiny adult) in comparatively believable surroundings, and trying a little tenderness.
SCRAPPY'S BIG MOMENT (1935): The child's match against Max Baer. Dynamically directed by Ben Harrison. Very rich animation that amazed me as a youngster (I owned an old, silent 8mm print). I found old cartoons (specifically Mintz's and Fleischer's) such a feast. There was nothing like watching silent early Popeye cycles moving slower than they were originally meant to!! (Click image.)
