Title: A Worm's Eye View
Joe De Nat
Running time (of viewed version): 7:04
Synopsis: Scrappy's worm does his best to avoid doing his baitly duties.
Comments: Worms always seem to tie themselves to fishhooks; I wonder why they don't show the cruel steel barbs piercing the gooey worm flesh? The worm has the Screwy Squirrel voice. This is the third underwater cartoon in a 13 day period, each from a different studio. The underwater effects are a bit nauseating when they kind of randomly appear. Yet another cartoon where the series title character is more or less ignored. The jokes are a bit obtuse, but some of them are interesting enough; I like the telegram with a fish in the envelope to deliver the message. The title is a cel that fades out over an in story background (and animated rooster) rather than a separate card. Columbia seems to have preferred transitioning titles more than the other studios. The fish make lots of faces.
