The sequel to 'Screwball Squirrel' (1944), with Screwy Squirrel being chased by the truant officer until he finds a helpfully-labelled chest of "Assorted Swell Things To Hit Dog On Head". Written by

Every time Screwy hits the truant officer dog with one of the "Assorted Swell Things to Hit Dog on Head," the dog's Stetson hat morphs into a hat of another kind. In this order, it becomes a pork pie hat, a sailor-boy cap, a police officer's cap, a top hat, an Indian war bonnet, a witch's conical hat, a bicorne, a crown, a bowler, a fireman's hat, a football helmet, and finally the Stetson once again.

[after dispatching the truant officer, Screwy pulls down the end title card]
Well, that's that. Now that dumb truant officer never will know why I wasn't in school.
Oh, yeah? Go on, tell me. Why wasn't you in school?
[Kisses truant officer]
I've got measles!

The Screwy Truant (1945) follows the further exploits of one Screwball Squirel! This time his out playing hooky from school. Whilst he's enjoying himself, a real stupid Truant officer spends the whole day trying to catch the wayward Squirrel and drag him back to school. But the wacky Squirrel has other plans and does everything within his power to try and stop the dopey officer and enjoy his day out in the forest. Will Screwy get the day off or will the moronic Truant Officer drag him back into the classroom? Check it out!
Tex Avery has created another classic short. That's what I like about Screwball Squirrel. He left everyone wanting more. At
the right time (before it got stale) he decided to end the lifeline of the character. It was fun while it lasted however. Long live Screwball Squirrel!
