Animaland: Ginger Nutt's Christmas Circus
The penultimate Animaland short, Ginger Nutt's Christmas Circus is a bit of an oddity. By now the squirrel Ginger Nutt was cemented as the series star, and so he gets title billing here, but he actually plays a very small role. Instead, the short brings back the various other animals which appeared across the series, originally created for one-off shorts.
The star of the short is actually the parrot who previously appeared in The Lion. As I mentioned before, in voice and personality he is the same character as Corny Crow, the antagonist from the Ginger Nutt cartoons - which would explain why Corny is reduced to a non-speaking cameo here.
