Sh-h-h-h-h-h is a 1955 cartoon directed by Tex Avery and produced by Walter Lantz. It was the fourth cartoon directed by Tex Avery at Walter Lantz Productions. This cartoon features the 1922 Okeh Laughing Record for much of its soundtrack. The short would be Avery's final Lantz cartoon, and last theatrical cartoon overall, as he would leave his career in theatrical animation.


A short, mild-mannered man, Mr. Twiddle, plays the congas in a nightclub jazz combo; the incessant noise (the horn players point their instruments directly at Twiddle's head) cause him to have nervous tremors, and he leaves in the middle of the act while the rest of the band continues to play. Later, his psychiatrist Dr. I. M. Jittery then tells him he is a "very sick man" suffering from "trombonosis" and recommends a relaxing trip to a quiet, secluded locale to restore his nerves. The doctor warns Twiddle that if he does not do so, he will blow up. So his wife (a nurse) makes travel arrangements.
