"Cooper's playing could not be improved upon."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"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."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"This youthful player [Jackie Cooper] gives a truly remarkable portrayal in a film that is endowed with wholesome amusement and affecting tenderness."
‑ Mordaunt Hall, New York Times
"Skippy is very effective at showing the world through a child's eyes: issues like class divides, deep pockets and public perceptions are meaningless."
‑ Gabe Leibowitz, Film and Felt
"A charming children's picture that doesn't neglect adults."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Aside from Cooper's performance, the best thing about the film is its grasp on what it was like to be a kid."
