''The Dirdy Birdy'' (1994) is an animated short created by Creator/JohnRDilworth, creator of WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog. It features a dimwitted bird name Purdy who falls in love with a cat named Fergurina. The short consists of Purdy trying to win Fergurina's affections (by showing his backside of all things) and getting rejected (and pummeled) in the process.
