Scrappy is a cartoon character created by Dick Huemer for Charles Mintz's Krazy Kat Studio. A cute little round-headed boy, Scrappy often found himself involved in off-beat neighborhood adventures. Usually paired with his mischievous little brother Oopy (originally Vontzy), Scrappy also had an on-again, off-again girlfriend named Margy and a Scotty dog named Yippy. In later shorts the annoying little girl Brat and pesky pet Petey Parrot also appeared. Huemer created the character in 1931, and he remained aboard Mintz's studio until 1933. With Huemer's departure, his colleagues Sid Marcus and Art Davis assumed control of the series. The final Scrappy cartoon, The Little Theatre was released in 1941.
