Storyline

A singing worm is pursued by a crow, moving in an amazing variety of ways while escaping. It then hides in an apple, a toothpaste tube, a victrola, a toaster, and an alcohol bottle. This gets him soused enough to challenge the crow directly. He finally hides in another apple. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Jerry Colonna as a worm again, folks.

Celebrity caricatures were a frequent gag and one of the more popular obscure choices was a comedian named Jerry Colonna. The only difficulty in doing a caricature of someone like Colonna is that caricature is extreme (in fact, the more outrageous, the better) but Colonna's whole act was farce-he was extreme by definition. So the best uses of the character were when the features were placed on a non-human character. Jerry was a worm at least twice, here and in Greetings, Bait and both are wonderful. The ending to this one is great and the whole short is extremely funny. The poor crow doesn't stand a chance! Well worth tracking down. Most recommended.
