Welcome to Scrappyland. A site devoted to a long-lost cartoon character from the 1930s.

Whew! I thought it was the secret origins of scrappy-doo.
(which would not be nearly as interesting, of course)

Wow!

Where ever did you find this gem?

yeah, my childhood antipathy to scrappy doo still causes flusteration.

You couldn't say that about Kiko the Kangaroo or even Oswald the Rabbit.

of course not! great site.

Hands of Manos, if you're not a regular reader of Cartoonbrew.com, you should start! This was posted there last week... It's a great site for all things cartoony.

Oh, this is fantastic. Totally fantastic. Cool, cool, cool.

Yeah, this is sweet -- his outfit is very M. Mouse indeed, down to the two huge buttons. Cool stuff -- and the monochromatic web design is sort of refreshing.

To add to the Scrappy-Doo pileon, I was fully expecting to come in here and write something absolutely horrific about braun_richard, and possibly his mother.

I love Scrappy prancing ahead of Krazy Kat and Mickey Mouse. Makes me feel like I've lived in an alternate universe all this time.

Delightful. After reading it I found this little item from 1936.

Wow, with quotes like "Other national tie-ups, novelties, and accessories are daily adding ready-made exploitation on this feature for you to profit on!" and the creator being named "Dick Humor" I still suspect that this is some big photoshoppery job...

Maybe reading about the Delphi Technique has me too paranoid.

Jeepers... the ungodly love-child of Mickey Mouse and Astroboy.

Happy Scrappy will always remind me of Clerks.

anthill, I thought at first that it was a hoax too, but I read through a lot of it and I'm pretty sure it's legit. Either way, I love the design of the site. It's very well matched with its content.
