What it is: Scrappy cartoon

A mad scientist is trying to concoct a potion, and Scrappy is his unwilling test subject.

This cartoon falls roughly into two parts. In the first, a mad scientist performs experiment on Scrappy and Baby. During the second, the action shifts to the 1990s, where Scrappy and Baby experience the world of the future where everyone wears working beanie-coptors. There’s plenty of fantastic content here to go around, but it doesn’t appear that much effort really went into concocting the story. It’s a little scary, a little humorous, a little whimsical, and has a little sense of wonder, but not enough of any of these qualities to make it stand out. Chalk it up as another cartoon obscurity.
