Slappy Squirrel (alternatively titled as Slappy and Skippy) is a segment from the original Animaniacs that features Slappy Squirrel, a grumpy veteran cartoon squirrel, and Skippy Squirrel, her chipper, happy nephew.
The retired cartoon star Slappy Squirrel lives with her nephew, Skippy, and embarks on wild adventures with him (usually). Slappy often faces may foes from her past, like Walter Wolf, Sid the Squid and Beanie the Brain-Dead Bison. A typical problem or minor inconvenience in each segment is solved with exaggerated cartoon violence to help the squirrels.

- Slappy Squirrel is the largest supporting segment in the original series, with 25 shorts.
- Much of Slappy's cartoons were animated by Startoons.
- As of 2021, there are no Slappy Squirrel segments in the 2020 reboot. The reason is most likely due to the focus on the Warner siblings and Pinky and the Brain, and Sherri Stoner not being part of the writing staff or voice cast.
