Storyline

Count Screwloose and J.R. the Wonder Dog share a house. Screwloose hogs all the pancakes at breakfast, so to get even, the dog pastes a picture of a pretty woman over the hag advertising for a husband. Screwloose answers the ad, and soon finds himself chased by the spinster, who keeps telling the minister to wait. They finally get married, and the dog thinks he's going to get a meal to himself when the Screwloose family, including all the kids, moves in. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Screwloose on the Loose
16 December 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

One of the unjustly forgotten comic strips, Milt Gross's "Count Screwloose of Tooloose" used to house it's nutty hero in a sanitarium. The Count later escaped and settled in suburbia and that is where we find him and J.R. the Wonder Dog in this pull-the-stops-out animated adaptation from MGM. Originally an unreleased flicker, it now pops up intermittently on Cartoon Network's "Late Night Black and White" and is worth hunting down. A hoot from start to finish involving J.R.'s plot to marry off his obnoxious master to an aging spinster. Wacky enough to make you wonder what sanitarium Gross broke out of.
