Anyway (what, ain'tcha ever heard of stream-of-consciousness) -- they took a wacky squirrel and gave him nephews, a la Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and they went out and had Carl Barks-style adventures. In one, Wacky was in an old-fashioned diving suit -- the kind with hoses to an air pump -- and much was made of the "tail gasket," so the tail could be out in the water, without having to be inside the suit.

Fred Perry, in Gold Digger, deals with costume modifications such as you describe.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl just keeps hers inside her pants...
It's been a long time since I read "Wacky Squirrel" but all I remember is ripoffs of old Screwy Squirrel cartoons.
