Our top five favorite cartoon squirrels

Squirrels may not be the most predominant character in entertainment, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great cartoon squirrels out there. So here at “The Acorn” we’ve taken some time to catalog the top five cartoon squirrels.

5. Rocky the Flying Squirrel from Rocky and Bullwinkle

Bullwinkle’s trusty sidekick Rocky is loyal and dependable. He has an honest conscience and keeps Bullwinkle out of major trouble. Rocky is always smiling and full of positive energy.

And I mean he can fly. No big deal.

4. Mort from Madagascar

Okay, before you say anything, I am aware that he is a lemur, but lemurs are an ancestor of the modern day squirrel so just deal with it.

Mort is absolutely adorable! He is always trying to do the right thing and that’s just one of the many things that make him great. Even though he oftentimes messes everything up, it usually works out in the end.

So even though while he’s technically not a real squirrel… he still makes our list!

3. Hammy from Over the Hedge

While Over the Hedge may be an easily forgotten movie, Hammy the loveably over excitable squirrel isn’t. He’s an innocent, pure hearted individual who only wants to help others.

What really makes Hammy great is that he’s pretty much just like any average college student. The most important things in his life are having fun… and FOOD! And not always in that order.

2. Sandy Cheeks from SpongBob Square Pants

Sandy is a powerhouse of attitude with some southern charm mixed in. She tells it like it is and could probably kick your butt if she needed to. Not to mention she’s a genius inventor and an all-around pretty cool chick!

And because she’s from the great state of Texas, she gets some extra points in my opinion.

Lastly… (drum roll please)

1. Scrat from Ice Age

Again, not really a modern squirrel but very close. Although he never talks, Scrat seems to say everything he needs to with those expressive eyes of his. He has a genuine heart and is doggedly determined to find the perfect place for his acorns. Scrat knows what he wants and he goes for it!

And any squirrel that loves acorns as much as this guy pretty much has to be number one on our list.
