Screwball goes native in this short!

Author: Miyagis_Sweaty_wifebeater ( from Sacramento, CA

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.

A Screwy Squirrel short, but he gets upstaged here

Although this is a Screwy Squirrel short, he is really the secondary character. The title character is front and center in this one, which is the least violent of the five Screwball Squirrel cartoons. The best scenes involve the daughter of the tribe's chief-they are hilarious! Well worth seeing. Recommended.

'Big Heel-Watha' tells the story of an Indian with only one feather, hunting down the Screwball Squirrel. The chief has ordered every Indian to try to get some food; he who succeeds can marry his daughter. After the one-feathered Indian found some animals his mind is set on the squirrel, leading us to a couple of funny surprises in the end.

This cartoon is very funny from start to finish. The Indian village is seen as some kind of modern corporation, the Indian knows he is in a cartoon and comments on it, the scene where he chases the squirrel on water is hilarious and the ending, especially the moment between the chief and his daughter, is perfect. I highly recommend this great cartoon.
