Sure was a funny gag. Too bad you couldn't see it.

Screwy Squirrel and Meathead are chasing when they stop in front of an end title card on a black background, with the words "The End" in green. They realize that it is the end of the picture. They say goodbye to each other and Screwy says "Hey! Before you leave, just what was the idea chasing me over the picture?". Meathead says "Because you're crazy. You take your appointment. But your ace. I'm crazy." Then Meathead begins to "screw" himself and runs from the cartoon breaking the title card. Then the screen zooms in to Screwy, who says "You know, I like this ending. It's silly". Then the cartoon ends and the typical "A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Cartoon" card appears. See more »
The best of the Screwy Squirrel series, Happy Go Nutty has the most coherent storyline as well as some of the best gags of the series.
Screwy Squirrel has been incarcerated in Moron Manor, a mental hospital with four buildings of very appropriate shape. Screwy breaks out (which isn't hard but which is done with typical Tex Avery flair) and explains that they think he's crazy - because he is, as he demonstrates in hilarious manner.
Meathead, the dog assigned to chase escaping patients, gets word of Screwy's escape (how he gets word is another of Avery's best gags) and the chase is on, complete with news headline of the dumb dog who falls for a corny old gag, commando stuff, the explosive apple (PC alert; Meathead's reaction after it blows has been wrongly cut out of modern airings of the cartoon), the telephone (you don't say!), and even a soda break, before the short's end pops up unexpectedly, and Screwy learns just what the legacy of Moron Manor really is.
