“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.

Animation: Ray Patterson At Mintz

Ray Patterson at Mintz

Ray Patterson’s career in animation spanned seven decades. He was responsible for the animation of Jerry Mouse dancing with Gene Kelly in Anchors Aweigh as well as animation for Dumbo and the "Pastoral" sequence of Fantasia. In 1954 he formed his own studio Grantray-Lawrence and he worked at Hanna-Barbera and Sanrio Productions as well.

Today, his family is sharing some of his earliest work with us… Ray began as an inker in 1929 at the Charles Mintz Screen Gems studio, working on Krazy Kat and Scrappy cartoons. By 1930, he had worked his way up to a position as animator. Here are some rare sketches and model sheets from his tenure there… Enjoy!
