Two Columbia Scrappy Shorts
“Puttin’ Out The Kitten” (1937) “Let’s Ring Doorbells” (1935)
Columbia’s Scrappy is one of the oddest cartoon series every produced. They seem to be made by the foot, with very little attempt to make one part of the cartoon relate to other parts in the story. However, there is enough imagination to sustain the seven minutes, so it’s likely that contemporary audiences didn’t mind a bit. “Putting’ Out The Kitten” starts with a typical pet situation, but in a few minutes everything has changed, with wallpaper coming to life and the cat enduring all kinds of tortures. “Let’s Ring Doorbells” is no less strange, with surreal background layouts and Scrappy and his little brother on the receiving end of the tortures this time. It appears that the subject matter wasn’t enough to fill out the time, so a completely irrelevant sequence with a drunk is shoehorned in, and Scrappy gets a scolding from a Jiminy Cricket-like butterfly. Many thanks to Animation Resources Advisory Board Member, Steve Stanchfield for sharing these rare films with us.
