Merrie Melodies - The Quentin Quail

Quentin Quail is a 1946 Merrie Melodies short directed by Chuck Jones.


A quail goes through various trials and tribulations to try to get a worm for his baby, Toots, only to be rebuffed by her because the worm looks like Frank Sinatra.



  • Quentin Quail is the same quail who appeared in "The Crackpot Quail", albeit with a different voices and personalities; as opposed to the Bugs Bunny-esque trickster personality the quail had in The Crackpot Quail, this quail however is a hapless, stern yet fatherly type of character. In addition, this quail from this cartoon is voiced by Tedd Pierce instead of Mel Blanc as in his debut appearance.
  • Toots is a take-off on Fanny Brice's radio character, Baby Snooks.
