Screwball Squirrel
- For its first appearance, Screwy Squirrel gets rid violently of a charming small squirrel, Disney way, which was ready to live a new adventure with all its friends with feathers and hairs. Then, Screwy Squirrel and its old enemy Meathead can continue their stampede in some increasingly insane situations until the final gag and the reconciliation of the two adversaries fighting Sammy the squirrel together. This manifesto against Disney is a pure wonder and Squirrel remains an unequalled character.

Batty Baseball - Film about baseball, rather minor in comparison with the production of the time, which has nevertheless some tasty gags.
