The Crow, owner of the S. Crow Insurance Agency, spots the Fox driving down the highway and asks him to sign his insurance policy. The Fox refuses, saying "I never have an accident", so the Crow is determined to see that he does. He rigs up some traps to injure the Fox but each one backfires. He electrifies a bunch of grapes but the Fox dons rubber gloves. He sends a falling tree on the fox but it lands on the crow instead. He tries to get the Fox to drive over a cliff but his car is part helicoptor! He also floods the Fox's house but that doesn't work either. Finally, the Fox agrees to sign when the Crow tells him about the luxurious hospital life awaiting him... and ultimately has his house dynamited by the Crow (who tells the Fox that his insurance policy has expired!).

Unsure Runts is a very funny Fox and Crow cartoon
27 October 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Since the plot summary tells the whole story, I'll just mention some of the early gags in here: Signs that says stuff like "Protect Yourself against Storms, Blondes, and Brunettes" or "Break Your Neck and Get Some Money". An object that says "Sucker Alert" that has a hand that points its finger at a potential customer with an alarm sounding and the hand lighting red. Nice surprise seeing the Crow being the fall guy most of the time in this Screen Gems cartoon. I also loved hearing the Fox's car doing the public domain tune "The Blue Danube" every time it sputters! This was one of the most enjoyable Fox and Crow entries from the uneven Screen Gems output of Columbia Pictures. I highly recommended this for any animation fan curious about this long-obscure cartoon team.
