Skippy 1931

Skippy: Precocious adolescent Skippy Skinner spends most of his time trying to get around doing those things that his parents want him to do (like brush his teeth), while doing those things his parents dont want him to do. Chief among the latter is spending time across the railroad tracks in Shantytown, instead of playing with clean neighborhood kids like brother and sister Sidney and Eloise. Skippys father, Dr. Herbert Skinner, the citys head of the health board, in particular doesnt like Skippy spending time there as Dr. Skinner is a verminophobe, and believes Shantytown is dirty and unhealthy. On Skippys latest visit to Shantytown when he meets a new friend named Sooky Wayne, he learns that Shantytown is being torn down and its poor residents have to move. And Sookys mongrel and unlicensed (since Mrs. Wayne cant afford the $3 license fee) dog Penny is captured by the citys dog catcher. As Skippy does whatever he can to raise the $3 to get Penny back for his new friend (which includes breaking into his piggy bank, holding a variety show for the Shantytown kids, and trying to ask his father for the money), Skippy learns that one person seems to be responsible for both these problems in his life, which makes the already tenuous relationship with this person even more tenuous.
