Outstanding Cel Artistry!

Three squirrels are reading a book, and then decide to play about Robin Hood. The littlest one wants to be Robin Hood, then the second largest, and finally the largest is selected to be Robin Hood. The little one is the villain by default, meaning the other two outvote him. They give him a bag of pretend gold, a pot for a helmet and a wooden sword. Then they turn him loose in the woods. Then the other two pretend to be Robin Hood and Little John and begin chasing the little guy. Meanwhile, the fox steals their book and formulates a plan. From his reading, he can tell the real Robin Hood had a sweetheart named Maid Marion. So he calls "help" and pretends to be Maid Marion through the use of his voice. The two larger squirrels follow the sound of the fox's voice through the woods until he lures them into an abandoned log cabin. He closes the back door, then sneaks around to the front and locks them inside the cabin. He hangs the two squirrels on the wall and begins preparation for a squirrel stew meal. Meantime, the little squirrel finds a fox hunter's horn in the woods and uses it to begin a noise campaign at the front door. He blows the horn, he bangs on the door, he yells, and the fox panics. Believing a troop of hunters is at the door, he beats on the back door furiously. He becomes so scared, his pelt turns yellow. Finally the back door breaks open and, pushing the door in front of his beating fists, the last we see of the fox is his hurried departure down a forest lane. Once again free, the two big squirrels go outside the front door where they find a jubilant little squirrel who says, "Now who gets to play Robin Hood?"
