What it is: Another forgotten Columbia cartoon

Scrappy and his baby brother get bored and decide to entertain themselves by going around ringing other people’s doorbells.

As might be expected from a setup like this, Scrappy and his brother have a lesson to learn, so they end up in a spooky with a ghostly old man who tells them they can’t leave the house until they press the right doorbell. This sequence is like a mild version of BIMBO’S INITIATION, but it still makes it as one of the better Scrappy cartoons out there. Many of the doors turn out to be booby traps, as you might expect. I wish there were a few more laughs, but it’s one of the higher points in Columbia’s cartoon catalog.
