A group of boys of pre and early teen years who live on the streets of New York in 1920’s Earth. The boys are orphans who survive by stealing and scavenging food where they can and in spite of their age, they developed a sophisticated system, blanketing their neighborhoods with targets and escape routes. The boys act as a team and take care of each other on the streets, as they are prone to crime and frequent police sweeps to rid the streets of orphaned children. The Bully Boys are: Flapjack, Houndstooth, Skidoo, Munch, Ducky, and Red (the sole girl of the group). Flapjack is one of the Bully Boys who saves the Young Doctor from one of the police sweeps and becomes one of his companions.
