Redemption is the keynote of every American film. Bourgeois society is a coupon. Skippy puts its bid across through the popularity of young children as players.

Norman Taurog won the Best Director Oscar for this charming tale, based on Crosby's comic strip featuring child star Jackie Cooper in one of his endearing performances.

Skippy is very effective at showing the world through a child's eyes: issues like class divides, deep pockets and public perceptions are meaningless.
