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 »

Nutty, but not that Happy
10 May 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

In this cartoon, Screwy Squirrel busts out of a nut house and is chased by the dumb dog Meathead. It's a familiar cartoon plot, but it's helped by some original gags...especially the one you can't see. Still, there were times I had trouble laughing. Screwy Squirrel just seems to be one of the most annoying cartoon characters ever created. I think one of the reasons he bugs me is that the things he does to his co-star are not accompanied by the spirit of fun you'd see with Bugs Bunny. Screwy just seems very mean-spirited and hateful.
