Old Brew


scrappyedith.jpgScrappy – America’s favorite forgotten cartoon star – was created in 1931 by Fleischer expatriate Dick Huemer for the Charles Mintz studio, as Columbia Pictures answer to Mickey Mouse (which was strange because Columbia was releasing Disney’s cartoons at this time).Harry McCracken has just recently expanded his spectacular homage website, SCRAPPYLAND, with twice as much content. If you haven’t visited lately, you’ll now find more Scrappy promotional items, Mintz studio photos, more photos of Columbia child stars with Scrappy products, Scrappy theatrical posters, updates to existing areas, a complete Scrappy fan magazine from the 1930s and last, but definitely not least, a report on the ASIFA-Hollywood’s Scrappyland event I hosted back in April.
