I too enjoyed Skippy and would love to see Sooky as well. In my opinion Jackie Cooper was a remarkable child actor. His readings were so natural that you would assume he was making up his dialogue as he went along. Coogan, although a cute child who physically fit the character, played his role in a self-conscious way. It does not surprise me that he didn't have a film career after these two movies. As far as billing is concerned, Jackie Cooper was borrowed from MGM for his role here while Coogan was probably being groomed for a stardom that didn't pan out. This would account for the billing which is odd given that Jackie is the titular hero.
