Scrappy Goes to the Circus

Some of the Scrappy fans who went to the movies in 1932 got to take Scrappy home with him — in the form of The Adventures of Scrappy and His Dog Yippy, a serialized story which appears to have been told across at least ten little booklets.

The booklets — at least the ones I’ve seen — have drawings by Dick Heumor, who is actually Dick Huemer experimenting with a new spelling for his name. They seem, however, to be mostly or entirely stock art.

Here’s chapter three, the earliest one I own, in which Scrappy and Margie (aka Margy) go to the circus; as it begins, Scrappy has just finished fishing. (I’m guessing that chapter two was titled “Scrappy Goes Fishing,” and now I’m wondering if there’s any chance that I own a piece of art from it.) I’d love to own the whole set someday — especially since chapter ten apparently reveals an exciting prize that was to given to every boy and girl. If it turned out it wasn’t Scrappy-related, it would be terribly disappointing.
