Character who appeared in only one cartoon: The Eager Beaver (Jones, 1946). Beck and Friedwald speculate that Jones might have been attempting to create a new recurring character. This theory is buttressed by the fact that the studio took the step of copyrighting the character before the release of the cartoon (No. G 45347, May 28, 1945), which it ordinarily did only for recurring characters.
