Quentin Quail is a screwball animated cartoon, part of the Merrie Melodies series, directed by Chuck Jones and released in 1946. It presents a tale about a quail (voiced by Tedd Pierce) who goes through various trials and tribulations to try to get a worm for his baby, Toots (a take-off on Fanny Brice's radio character, Baby Snooks), only to be rebuffed by her because the worm looks like Frank Sinatra.
