Screwball Squirrel

Star of the cartoon Sammy Squirrel meets Screwy in the forest and explains the outline of the story to him, about him and his forest friends. Screwy takes the cute squirrel behind a tree and violently disposes of him off-screen, explaining to the audience that they wouldn’t have like Sammy’s cartoon anyway. Using a nearby phone booth, he calls and insults the antagonist Meathead and the two start a gag-chase.
