Characters
Scribbly Jibbet; Mrs. Jibbet (introduction, Scribbly's mother); "Dinky" Jibbet (introduction, Scribbly's younger brother, unnamed while at Dell Comics, see Notes below); Rose (introduction, Mrs. Jibbet's friend); Ving Parker (famous cartoonist, mentioned only, appears next issue)
Synopsis
When Scribbly's mother forces him to wear knickers, he tricks her into buying him the smock that he wanted.

Indexer Notes

Scribbly's kid brother is unnamed throughout the entire Dell Comics run, acquiring the name "Dinky" only after moving to DC Comics. However, readers did suggest the nickname "Dinky" for him in The Funnies (1936 series) #15 and #16.
This story states that Scribbly is still in grade school.

Indexer Notes

Per info in Michael Barrier's Funnybooks The Improbable Glories of the Best American Comic Books, Gaylord Du Bois likely adapted the Big Little Book story for comics which would have been one of Du Bois' earliest comic book assignments.
