Skippy Vol. 3: Complete Dailies 1931-1933
by Percy Crosby

Edited by Jared Gardner and Dean Mullaney, Designed by Lorraine Turner, Biographical essay by Jared Gardner


With the release of the Oscar-winning Skippy movie in 1931, Percy Crosby had his biggest stage at precisely the moment he was committing himself to bringing his creative and political work together. Skippy suddenly was everywhere and Crosby was determined to use his visibility and influence as one of the most successful cartoonists of his generation to transform a society in the grips of a deepening Depression and the late years of the failed policy of Prohibition. Like his beloved Skippy, Crosby had yet to back down from a fight, no matter how daunting the opposition. This volume, reprinting all dailies form 1931-1933, brings us to some of Percy Crosby's most inspired strips of Skippy's long run. Bonus materials include many photographs and rare artwork from the collection of the cartoonist's daughter, Joan Crosby Tibbetts.

9.5" x 8.5" hardcover-with-dustjacket, 340 pp, $49.99, ISBN: 978-1-63140-020-9.

"A scintillating collection of the greatest children's comic strip ever."
--The Washington Times

"One of the great, lost classics of the newspaper age. The best. Simply the best."
--The New York Journal of Books

Say No to Skippy Peanut Butter

Public Notice!

Skippy, Inc. has filed a Petition to Cancel the fraudulent SKIPPY peanut butter trademark that Hormel “bought” for $700 million from Unilever 2 years ago. This is the latest development in Skippy’s David vs. Goliath battle in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. We post Skippy’s Petition to enable the public and government agencies to see why Hormel, its management, law firms and ad agencies do not want the public to know the sordid origins of the stolen SKIPPY name and good will from Percy Crosby—dating to 1933. In 1934, although the Patent Office prohibited Rosefield (Hormel’s predecessor) from registering Skippy’s trade name for peanut butter, Rosefield (then bankrupt in California) ignored the final decision and made a fortune by stealing the famous SKIPPY name—lying to many that it had Percy Crosby’s “permission”. The true story is viewed by many in the court of public opinion as “unconscionable”. This is a case where crime does pay by engaging in cover-up involving corruption and greed that makes ongoing fraud conspiracy profitable. Read Petition Here
