- Synopsis / Plot
- In this film based on the popular comic strip, Skippy interrupts his usual routine of finding loopholes in his parents' rules when he makes friends with Sooky, a boy from the other side of the tracks. The two boys have three days to come up with a way to pay for a license for Sooky's dog and keep the dogcatcher from putting him to sleep. Skippy also has to convince his father - the local health supervisor - not to tear down the shantytown where Sooky and the local poor folk live, while also getting himself involved with local bullies, kids' shows, lemonade stands and assorted other adventures. And then there's that new bike he's saving for....
