Peck's Bad Boy

1
       Circus Day
         ______

It takes four pecks to make 
a bushel but only one small 
Peck to start a riot.

2
JACKIE COOGAN
      as
Henry Peck - much
more notorious as "Peck's
Bad Boy."

3
This is Tar Baby - the kid's
  four-legged Pal.

4
And this is Buddy - the
kid's two-legged Pal,
whose Paw owns the
grocery store.

	... Charles Hatton

5
Next we have Henry's
father, who sells real
estate when not living up
to the responsible job of
being Daddy to his own
son.

	... James Corrigan

6
"I'll bet Peck's kid
 started this row."

7
"Didn't I tell you not to
 open that man-eating lion's
 cage?"

8
"Aw, they said he was only
 a man-eater. How did I
 know he'd be fond of
 boys?"

9
"You get no circus money 
        from me!"

10
"Aw, pop! Have a heart!"

11
"We're going to see that
 circus - or bust, Buddy.
 And as for me, I don't
 expect to do any bustin'."

12
Being Henry's sister,
 Letty is naturally
accustomed to sudden
shocks.

	... DORIS MAY

13
"Tell his mother to come
 after him before he gets
 lynched or I go crazy!"

14
Henry's one friend at
 home - his mother.

... LILLIAN LEIGHTON

15
This gentleman might
 have been a pirate,
but running a grocery is
safer and pays just as
well.

  ... RAYMOND HATTON

16
Among Mr. Peck's other
 troubles, he is financing
an inventor who is going to 
make them both rich -
maybe.

17
"I have made those
 changes in the plans
 that I explained last
 week."

18
"- and it will cost about
 a thousand more to com-
 plete the model."

19
"Say, I'm into this thing up 
      to my ears now!"

20
"I'll give you this marble if
 you'll take this note to
 my pop."

21
"How d'ye get that way?
      Gimme two!"

22
"Hullo, pop! Fine day for
  the circus, ain't it?"

23
"Don't you and Buddy
 want to go to the
 circus?"

24
"You sure are good to 
      us, pop."

25
"Charge it to my dad."

26
"What mischief were you 
       in today?"

27
"Only for me the lion
 would have escaped!"

28
"Where did you get that
      ice-cream?"

29
"Pop bought it. He's in
 the candy store - talkin'
 to some lady."

30
"Take it all! Pickpocket!"

31
"I'll catch it tonight! Lost
 my sister's hat and her big
 doll's wig!"

32
"It ain't tonight yet!
 Haven't we got our
 circus money?"

33
"That little imp Henry is
 at the bottom of this!"

34
"You blame everything on
    my little lamb."

35
"Lamb? He's a wildcat!"

36
"Do monkeys like 
    bananas?"

37
"Bananas? That's the one
 thing monkeys like nothin'
 else but!"

38
"When I get to the circus
 today I'll tell 'em you sent
 these."

39
When a cop in this town
 sees Henry on the run,
he knows there is trouble
either ahead of him or
behind him.

40
The morning train brings to
 town a brand-new doctor
- ready to practice medicine
and economy.

41
Jack Martin - hoping
 he'll soon get used
to being called "Doc."

  ... WHEELER OAKMAN

42
It's a lucky kid that has a
 haven of refuge - well-
stocked with eats.

43
"They nearly got us today, 
        old boy."

44
"How does your father
 put up with you, Henry?"

45
"It's fifty-fifty. Don't I have
 to put up with him, too?"

46
"Not bad!"

47
"Pass the apples, please."

48
Henry isn't often at home
 between meals but just 
now the old homestead looks
pretty good.

49
Cramp, cramp, cramp, the
  boy is marching!

50
"Ma! Oh, ma!"

51
"Come quick! Bring
 a doctor! Henry's
 poisoned!"

52
"You're a doctor! Come
 and save my little lamb!"

53
"Henry, you've been at
 that grocery again -
 stuffing yourself!"

54
"Just a little stomach-ache."

55
"Full of prunes - and
    dried apples!"

56
"Mother, this is Mister -"

57
"Doctor Martin."

58
"This is Doctor Martin, 
 mother. We met when
 I was visiting auntie, last
 summer."

59
"I'm not going to die, 
      am I, Doc?"

60
"Not if you take this."

61
"Take it away - and let
        me die!"

62
Dr. Martin soon discovered
   that Letty requires
his constant professional
attentions.

63
"Ants! I can use 'em!"

64
"Go in and dress for 
       church."

65
"Church?"

66
"Henry! Bring me my
   lumbago pad!"

67
"Where's my nickel for the
      heathens, pop?"

68
"A heathen is about all
 you can get for a nickel
 these days."

69
"Will you walk to church
        with us?"

70
"No, I - I'd better hurry!"

71
For Henry this old world 
 is just one temptation after
another.

72
"Nope - this is Sunday.
 I'm goin' to be good."

73
"Turn 'em off - turn 'em
 off! I'll buy you another
 one!"

74
"Looks like the old boy's
 had a shot of home brew!"

75
The burnt child dreads
 the shingle.

76
"Something may have hap-
 pened to my little lamb!"

77
"Something will happen to
 your little lamb if I don't
 lose my strength!"

78
"I found this bottle in
      his pocket!"

79
"At last the plans are per-
 fected! Will you guard
 the drawings until the
 papers are ready for the
 patent office?"

80
"In church this morning I
 felt like an ant-hill!"

81
"Where's pop?"

82
"Didn't you get what's
  coming to you yet?"

83
"Nope - and I'm hopin'
    for the best."

84
"There's a fresh young man
 waiting for you down
 stairs."

85
"Well, he's not home yet."

86
"I'm leaving tomorrow morn-
 ing for a visit at home. May
 I tell my folks I've won the
 sweetest girl in the world?"

87
"Henry, why are you such
 a bad boy? You're break-
 ing mamma's heart!"

88
"I'm sorry I'm such a bad 
      little boy."

89
"- and please make me
 a good boy. Amen -
 again."

90
"Is that all you love me?"

91
A late visitor who drops in
 without disturbing the
family -

92
- and a small boy dying
     of starvation.

93
"Gee, I'm hungry! I'd eat
 anything that didn't bite
 me first!"

94
Next morning something is
 discovered which they 
can't blame on the Kid.

95
"Gimme the police!"

96
"What number? A number
 of police - a large number
 of 'em!"

97
By the time pop gets back
 to earth, the sleuths are
ready to snoop.

98
"- and nothing was taken 
 but some valuable draw-
 ings - of an invention."

99
"I don't suspicion anyone,
 y'understand, but I think
 your daughter has an idea
 about this business."

100
"Have you any idea -"

101
"But you don't think he
 would take your old
 papers?"

102
"We'll just step over to the
 hotel and give this Martin
 chap the third degree."

103
"Jack isn't at the hotel -
 he's leaving town! If we
 can catch him at the depot
 he'll explain everything,
 I'm sure!"

104
Meanwhile our hero, dodg-
 ing a painful interview 
with pop, has missed all the
excitement.

105
"Hey! The dog-catcher's
    got your dog!"

106
"What's the meaning of this, 
        Mr. Peck?"

107
"I'd like to see 'em take 
          my dog!"

108
"They tried to grab
     Tar Baby -"

109
"Are these the stolen
       papers?"

110
"We found them in his
       pocket!"

111
"Hey, pop! Doc didn't
     steal that!"

112
"It's just a little joke of
        the kid's."

113
"You little imp!"

114
"Let's forgive him - for the
 hundredth time this month."

115
"Would you mind taking
 off this wrist-watch?"

116
"Hey! Number Six is due
    on that track!"

117
"Here's where I get mine!"

118
"Fine work, Doc! I need
  you in the family!"
