Deep in the jungles of Hyde Park London, the squirrels discover the sinister truth behind their poor harvest. Vyle Bakeries Ltd have devised a cost-cutting scheme to obtain ingredients for their Cookie range and are stealing nuts right from the rodent's own stash piles.
Faced with the prospect of either starving or having to pay extortionate prices for coffee shop cookies, the squirrels join forces and tackle the problem at the source... in an inexplicable and highly implausible way.

This is my third Flash cartoon and pretty much the limits of what my poor computer and I are capable of producing. Six months in the making, six huge sheets of storyboarding, over one hundred pages of scanned illustrations and more effort put in than all my high school projects combined (As if that's saying much...).

Got me chuckling .. can't wait to see the squirrels win (or at least go... nuts).

Love the Art Detail

So this was a really nice and "ARTISTIC" film you have running here, one thing I "NOTICED" besides the very live "STORY" was what you did with the art the shades alone or very well textured and deep and it jumped out at ame right away so I was pretty impressed with this, Some added dialog and or subtitles for characters might do well I know there was not much talk at all but im sure you could have put signs in subtitles to show off more of there thinking process, anyways nice entry here.
