Ginger Nutt's Forest Dragon (1950)
7min · Animation, Comedy, Short · 1 January 1950
Squirrel Ginger Nutt is showing his girlfriend Hazel how he'd save her from any peril. Some other woodland creatures see this, and decide to have some fun with him, using a scary-looking hollow stump to pose as a fearsome dragon. Ginger is initially frightened into his home (as is Hazel), but goes back out to face the monster. The other animals use a root to make monster tracks, then scare him some more, but he catches on when they walk behind a too-sparse hedgerow. He mounts the "head" as a trophy, then shows Hazel how he fought the fearsome beast, but the head comes crashing down and smashes to bits, exposing his ruse.
