Chip the Cheapskate was a cartoon character that aired around the 1920’s through the 1940’s. Interestingly enough, there is no known recording of him any where, except for a few news paper clippings. My grandpa remembers that the show aired on a local television station before it was cancelled due to bankruptcy. He also told me that the original pilot episode was never shown to the public because it was deemed to dark for young children. He then handed me a rusty tin box with the content of a film reel of the “lost episode.”
