Scaredy Squirrel is a new animated series that debuted on April 1, 2011. The series is based on the Scaredy Squirrel children books by Melanie Watt (which is always mentioned after the theme song gag). The show revolves around a squirrel named Scaredy who opts to become the best stacker in Balsa City and tackles challenges with his trademark quirkiness.
As of December 5, 2011, Scaredy Squirrel has officially been removed from Cartoon Network's Schedule. However, the show may possibly return to the schedule as it has yet to be removed from the Cartoon Network website.
Scaredy Squirrel is a squirrel (as his name suggests) who has somewhat of a neat freak personality and is shown to stress out whenever he sees even the tinniest of messes on some occasions. He owns a "pet" cactus named Richard whom he cares for everyday. Though its just a plant, it has shown to eat and move stuff around on some occasions (similar traits can be seen on the character Plank from Ed, Edd n Eddy). His job is to stack grocery items in a very creative way (e.g. toilet paper stacked in the shape of a toilet) to attract customers. And although he does a very good job at it, his boss, Nester, still yells and rants at him and is rarely ever impressed with Scaredy's work.
Dave is a skunk who is the exact opposite of Scaredy. He is Scaredy's friend and is more child-like than Scaredy. He is also somewhat dimwitted, but at times he can be overly smart.
The intimidating manager of the Stash 'n Hoard who usually tries to get on Scaredy's nerves. He tries best to impress his mother, but to little to no avail.
Momma is the mother of Nester who usually likes to enter in a dramatic way. She likes to fire employees and usually treats her son poorly.
A fish who is in love with Scaredy.
- The series was originally going to air on the channel Nickelodeon, but was later picked up by Cartoon Network as Nickelodeon already had a similar series, Jimmy Two-Shoes, currently airing on it (the same show also shared the same animation style).
