Animaland: Ginger Nutt in "It's a Lovely Day"
With It's a Lovely Day, the Animaland series departed from its revolving cast of characters and developed a series star: a squirrel named Ginger Nutt. Serving as antagonists are the roguish Corny Crow (who owes rather a lot to the parrot character from an earlier short, The Lion) and his stooges Loopy Hare and Dusty Mole.
The plot and gags are not very strong, unfortunately, but the cartoon does a good job of introducing the characters.
