Scrappy Articles


Unaccountably, Scrappy literature remains rather sparse. But it’s not (quite) nonexistent. We’ve rounded up a few pieces, including ones written especially for Scrappyland visitors as well as some articles from years past.

Plug: Animation Art, edited by Jerry Beck, includes a few paragraphs on Scrappy written by the proprietor of this Web site. Also, both Michael Barrier’s Hollywood Cartoons and Leonard Maltin’s Of Mice and Magic sensibly devote some space to discussion of the series.
