The Nutty Squirrels Sing A Hard Day's Night and Other Smashes is a children's music album by jazz musicians Don Elliott and Alexander "Sascha" Burland, recording as The Nutty Squirrels.

This was the first Squirrels album to cover current pop hits (including three by The Beatles). Previous albums had featured jazz standards.

It would be the last Nutty Squirrels album until 1976, when the act was revived (without Elliot and Burland) under the legal pseudonym Shirley & Squirrely.
