"Summer is gone" and throughout the forest, squirrels are working hard gathering acorns for the long cold winter ahead. But one young squirrel has a better idea...winning acorns by shooting dice. His father disapproves of the plan but can't make his son stop gambling. Winter comes and the father sends the son to the First Nutional Bank to retrieve the family acorn savings. On the way back, the son meets up with a mysterious squirrel intent on teaching him the evils of gambling... Written by

Did You Know?
When the "inspector squirrel" stamps the acorns as they roll by him, the image that is left on the acorns is the exact/precise Hebrew - correct letters and vowels - for the word "KOSHER." See more
You boys must be pinched in the head / To keep working 'till you're almost dead / This is the way to gather nuts for winter / Now that summer is gone.
As the cartoon ends, you can still hear the squirrel yelling while being spanked. See more
