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 »

One of the few series that Tex created himself and exclusively did
26 January 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

From all reports, Tex Avery was not terribly interested in doing cartoons using continuing characters, such as the Tom and Jerry series. Droopy was probably his big contribution in this vein. He did a few others, most notably the series with George and Junior and this series with Screwball Squirrel, but Avery was more interested in gags than he was in developing a set of continuing characters. Screwball Squirrel was exactly that-a screwball squirrel. These cartoons were among the most violent that Avery directed and this one is probably the most violent of the series. I personally like Screwy. Most recommended.
