Screwball goes native in this short!
5 November 2004 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Big Heel-Watha a.k.a. Buck of the Month (1944) is a cartoon short that Screwball is only a secondary character to a dopey Indian named Big Heel-Watha. The tribe needs meat so the Chief offers his daughter Minnie Hotcha to whom ever gets the tribe some meat. Since Squirrels cost no meal ration points, they're fair game. All the braves run out into the woods after being motivated by seeing Minnie Hotcha. Chief Rain-in-Face makes the offer. Big Heel-Watha unfortunately runs into Screwball Squirrel and is tormented by him endlessly. Can the dopey brave get the squirel and win the "hotest' woman in the tribe?

A funny cartoon that features Screwball in only a secondary role. Tex Avery's bizarre humor and the welcomed appearance of the Squirrel make this short another classic. Not as funny as the others but it's still worth watching.
