An earthworm living in a hole in the ground is a nervous wreck since a nearby bird does believe the old adage "the early bird gets the worm". Every morning, the bird lies in wait to nab the worm, so far without success. To help protect himself, the worm enlists the help of a cat, albeit a somewhat dopey cat. As the bird chases the worm, and as the cat chases the bird, the worm thinks he's got the solution to all his problems, which may sacrifice his new relationship with the cat.

The Early Bird Dood It! was one of Tex Avery's early M-G-M cartoons
This was a Tex Avery M-G-M cartoon that I just watched on the Girl Crazy (Garland/Rooney version) DVD. The worm (who it seems sounds and acts a little like Lou Costello) is trying to get away from the early bird but, of course, he's not easy to get rid of. So when a cat is chasing a mouse in his view, the worm convinces the feline to chase the bird he wants to rid himself of. I'll stop there and just say what you expect from Tex based on his many cartoons, you'll find here as well like signs stating the obvious or unexpected endings. This was one he made after immediately leaving Leon Schlesinger's studio and it's safe to assume if he hadn't, Hanna-Barbera's Tom & Jerry cartoons would have probably not been as outrageous as they eventually got. So on that note, The Early Bird Dood It! is very much worth seeing.
