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.

[In the middle of a scene, a wolf goes by chasing Little Red Riding Hood; Screwy stops him]
Wait a minute, pal. You're in the wrong picture, ain't ya, man?
[Pulls down main title card]
See? The Screwy Truant, featuring Screwy Squirrel.
Hmm. One of them corny B-pictures, eh?
Oh, yeah? Listen, you. If you were my size, I'd bust you right in the nose.
[Wolf shrinks down to Screwy's size; Screwy shrinks even smaller and runs away]

At the end, Screwy Squirrel lowers the THE END title card and says to the audience, "now that dopey truant officer never will know why I wasn't at school." The Truant Officer appears and demands to know why he wasn't at school. Screwy answers: "Because, I've got measles." Both characters now have spots on their faces; Then the camera pulls in on the words THE END... which become covered in spots as well! See more »
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!
