Character created and played by Fanny Brice on her radio show of a mischief-making little girl. Snooks is one of the stars -- the little one -- that Daffy Duck sees after getting clouted on the head by a studio cop in Hollywood Daffy (Freleng, 1946). A caricature of Fanny Brice as Snooks is seen in Malibu Beach Party (Freleng, 1941) covering Ned Sparks in sand. The little daughter quail in Quentin Quail (Jones, 1946) is based on the Snooks character.
