Flop Goes the Weasel is a 1943 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed and supervised by Chuck Jones in the uncredited.[1]


A mother hen is off trying to catch a worm for her soon to be baby. While out, a Weasel steals the egg, wanting it for breakfast. Unfortunately the egg hatches and it mistakes that the Weasel as its mother. The Weasel wants to eat the chick, but it outsmarted him every time. For the last 3 minutes of the film, the weasel is constantly sneezing because the chick put pepper in his nose. He goes back to his biological mother, who found out that he had beaten up the Weasel.
