About Scrappyland

Updated July 2012
Scrappyland is an educational Web site. We’re not in this for money. Frankly, we’re not sure what we are in this for, but if this little site helps ignite new interest in Scrappy and his pals–or just keeps them from being completely forgotten–we’ll be pleased. So visit often. And tell your friends.

“We,” by the way, is me–Harry McCracken. (Click here┬áto send me e-mail.) When I’m not busy blogging about Scrappy, I write about technology.

One of the best things about Scrappy cartoons is their insistently 1930s feel. Most were in black and white, and don’t suffer a bit for it. That’s why we’ve given this site an Art Deco/streamline aesthetic and eschewed the use of colors not seen in most Scrappy cartoons (that is, everything except black, white, and shades of gray). We hope that Dick Huemer, Art Davis, and Sid Marcus might have approved, or at least understood.

Scrappyland is produced in the Westlake District of Daly City, California, U.S.A., using the wonderful WordPress and whatever PC and/or Mac and/or iPad products we have handy.

Scrappyland opened in January, 2005 and received significant updates in August of that year. And then it saw little in the way of new material until July, 2012 when it was relaunched in a bloggier format.

Scrappy is owned by Columbia Pictures, which has not endorsed this site.
