Here's some models sheets and animation drawings from Tex Avery's "Screwball Squirrel". This is probably one of my favorite cartoons of all time and Screwy's one of the funniest characters. I was dumbfounded when I read that Tex didn't think he was funny, talk about a perfectionist, sheesh. I prefer this earlier design over the one in the later shorts like "Lonesome Lenny", though he does look a little screwier in those other shorts. I can't think of another character who takes such delight in pounding the hell out of his adversary as much as Screwy, he's a little over the top but that what I like about him.
