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...).

Hey, during the planning part of the squirrels plan, the music playing.. what's that from?? It's driving me mad that I can't remember where I've heard it.

And NICE. You seem to have a near perfect ability to take a story from your mind and translate it flawlessly into a medium everyone can enjoy. Wonderful drawing. Wonderful "directing" as it were.. Just. Wow. I'm surprised you haven't been picked up by some major corporation for something more large scale. Your work is incredibly impressive.
