Nutty News (1942)

Nutty News is a 1942 Looney Tunes short directed by Bob Clampett.


Elmer Fudd narrates a series of events presented in gag-like ways.


  • The version shown on Nickelodeon not only cut the entire scene of the new invention that forces little boys to sit still while getting their hair cut (a jack-in-the-box with the head of Adolf Hitler as the jack), but also showed the title card to the cartoon as right side up rather than upside down before correcting itself.
  • Some syndicated prints of the cartoon are uncut, but do have the title card right-side up rather than upside down before correcting itself (as seen in the video on this page). The short's appearance on Cartoon Network's The Bob Clampett Show had the title card as it originally appeared in the theaters.
