The very first cartoon in Warner Bros. popular Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner series of cartoons. This one has the Coyote chasing the Roadrunner using a rather ingenious invention combining a fridge, a meat grinder, ice cubes, and skis.

Screwy Squirrel decides to hijack this cartoon from his friend, Sammy Squirrel, who wanted to tell a sweet story about him and his cute woodland friends. Instead, Screwy Squirrel wants to make the cartoon a battle of the wits between himself and a bird dog named Meathead. Despite Meathead being solely a dog that chases birds, Screwy Squirrel goads him into chasing him. Meathead can't let the insults from Scewy Squirrel go by without that chase. Screwy Squirrel seems to have Meathead's number as Meathead ends up on the losing end time after time when he tries to catch Screwy Squirrel. Ultimately, Screwy Squirrel provides the answer to why he is always one up on Meathead. Written by

Do you chase squirrels?
Nope, n-nothing but birds, I'm a bird dog, registered, p-pedigreed b-bird dog, I chase nothing but birds, that's all, just birds.
Aw, you're probably too slow to chase squirrels. You're yellow. Why you... Oh, pardon me.

I think that screwball squirrel was a really funny character,he's a orange squirrel that talks like he has a cold,this cartoon is similar to tom and jerry because this dog that screwball calls meat head is always chasing him and screwball would always beat the living crap out of him with baseball bats and all sorts of objects that can be used as weapons.For a cartoon that was released in the 1940's it's really hilarious and more funny than them crappy cartoons they show today.Tex Avery the creator of this cartoon made a whole lot of funny cartoons during the same time,but i find this one to bee the funniest,it's a shame that he didn't continue with this funny cartoon character this cartoon only had about 4 or 5 episodes than went off the air. Screwball Squirrel is such a underrated cartoon character,but is unforgettable.
