An Egg Scramble is a 1950 Merrie Melodies cartoon. It was later re-released in 1959 as a Blue Ribbon cartoon. This short marks the first appearance of Miss Prissy.
Miss Prissy, a hen on Porky’s farm, has never laid an egg in her life because she finds it "embarrassing". One of her fellow hen friends decides to paint Prissy’s name on an egg and place it inside in Prissy’s nest. Prissy believes that she laid the egg and when Porky comes to take it for the market Truck she refuses to let him have it. Porky manages to grab the egg and gives it to the driver of the truck. Prissy is so determined to have “her egg” back that she follows the truck to the city. She finds the egg in a woman’s house grabs it and flees. Convinced that the police are chasing her, Prissy hides out in a run-down building where an escaped criminal also happens to be hiding. At the end, the hens tell Porky one of them laid the egg, not Prissy. Despite the confession, the egg hatches revealing it to be a chick that looks like Prissy.
