Crazy Credits

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 »

Happy Go Nutty (1944)

*** (out of 4)

Tex Avery directed animated short with Screwy Squirrel escaping from a mental hospital and being chased by an even crazier dog. There's some pretty good drawings here and the two characters are entertaining enough for this nine-minute film. There are several nice gags including one scene with some "Coo-Coo" Cola.

Good entertainment for the whole family.

You have plenty of different options in watching this one but the Warner release has been remastered and looks the best.
