Fridge / Tex Avery

Fridge Horror
  • The 1946 Tex Avery cartoon "Lonesome Lenny'' is about a big, friendly dog who has a tendency to crush "little friends" to death. The last one he does this to: none other than our hero, Screwy Squirrel. Now, add that to the fact that Screwy is shown dead in his last cartoon, and put two and two together.
  • "Jerky Turkey" from 1945 ends with both the pilgrim and the turkey ending up inside Joe the bear's stomach. Although it's depicted in a humorous manner, the fridge horror kicks in once you realize the implications of the fact that they basically got eaten. Which means they are essentially doomed, they'll never see their families again, and they'll eventually get digested alive. It doesn't help that the cartoon ends with them still in the stomach and neither of those characters is ever seen again...
