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...).


Very clever, funny and well animated...

I like your style, I hope I get to see some more squirrel action! >_*. All the animation was so smooth and at the same time everything was so well drawn too(a rare mix) Do, keep it up buddy! ^,^

What limits?

That was awesome. I really like it. I enjoyed the little jokes here in there, like the population sign and the "sleep all winter" slide. It was very well put together, and all the animation looked and flowed well. The music fit. I liked the way the story progressed, and didn't really need any dialogue. I can hardly wait for part 2, this is going in my favorites.

xD that was awsome and funny.

did a fat bastard eat them? xD

Completely Insane--Thus, Awesome

I couldn't stop laughing through the latter half of this flick. Just watch, and you'll understand. The music is meh-ish, but overall I liked it.


that was awsome
