Screwy was the creation of Fred "Tex" Avery, who was looking to develop something akin to WB legends Daffy Duck & Bugs Bunny for MGM. Sadly, Screwy lasted just 5 shorts and was presumably killed off, only to return years later in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?". Dark Horse Comics acquired a license to adapt Screwy for comics, which led to a 3-issue miniseries. Unfortunately, it must not have sold enough copies to warrant any continuation.
Anyway, let's go back to 1944 and the debut of Screwball Squirrel:
Typical Tex, but in this case, badly underappreciated.
