Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not, and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is. - Oscar Wilde

Albert the Squirrel’s scarf is missing. During his search he gives thoughtful advice to his forest neighbors. What a happy little story. Right?
Narrated by the incomparable George Takei. Animated by Eoin Duffy.
Another fun little film from Blur Studio
Spring and Fall for several years we had baby squirrels in a box atop the fridge and, while they did have piercing whistles, none of them sounded off quite like my favorite rantful squirrel, Foamy.

And, sadly, Squirrelapalooza comes to a close. While we are certain to see Foamy here again, soon probably, it will take some time to track down enough animations to throw another Squirrelapalooza. I know you’re looking forward to it so much that I’ll be barraged with comments pleading for it’s quick return, but please be patient, it takes time to gather nuts…
Traumdeutung: German; Interpretation of dreams
Dreams, squirrels and videotapes. A man dreams of a squirrel and then – backed up by battery of machines – mounts an inquiry into the apparition of squirrels in other people’s dreams. Traumdeutung is an animation about the global reserve of dreams while crossing the border between documentary and surreal. via
Animation from Fellowland
(at least squirrelapalooza isn’t a dream, eh?)
If a squirrel farts in the forest, does Smokey the Bear hear it?
(the new squirrelapalooza theme sound?)
The quest to build the better bird-feeder, that is, one that can’t be cleaned out by the squirrels, continues to escalate. Unfortunately for them, a squirrel’s persistence and resourcefulness are hard to defeat.
(you’re enjoying squirrelapalooza, aren’t you. i can tell…)
In the park, to survive you must protect your nuts.
Squirellapalooza rolls on… All you really need to get down and be funky is a squirrel.
From the Disney cartoon series Phineas and Ferb.
Welcome, folks, to the first (and perhaps only) Squirrelapalooza here at The Ruffled Crow! A weekend
full imbued with a surfeit of animation featuring the bane of bird feeders everywhere; the squirrel. Why squirrels? Well that’s a long story…
(ok, maybe it won’t be chock full, possibly not even crammed or jam-packed, and i would certainly not use the term glutted. i might consider teeming, perhaps, but i think i really feel more comfortable with imbued with a surfeit although i now have to go back and edit it. sigh…)
