Squirrel Boy was an American animated television series produced by Cartoon Network Studios.
The series, created and executive produced by Everett Peck, who was also the creator of the more adult-humored Duckman, and creative directed by Thurop Van Orman, who would later go on to create The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, premiered on May 27, 2006 on Cartoon Network. It is also shown on Cartoon Network in Australia and New Zealand and Teletoon in Canada. The show ended on September 27, 2007.
Squirrel Boy focuses on the life of an odd boy named Andy Johnson (named after the former United States President, Andrew Johnson) who lives with his pet squirrel, Rodney, who is often full of ideas (some of them used to make money). Rodney is disliked by Andy's father, but the two sometimes work together when they need to. Many of the animal characters in the series are anthropomorphic (except for "Crazy Dog," a neighboring pet dog who constantly barks for no reason, and despite the fact that Crazy Dog isn't anthropomorphic, his identical twin brother is). Andy and Rodney are enemies with a boy named Kyle and his anthropomorphic parrot, Salty Mike, who constantly pick on Andy and Rodney and act as bullies towards them, and are also cynical to other characters in the show. Other squirrel characters in the show include Leon, a stray blue squirrel who lives in a tree in Andy's yard, and Darlene, an attractive stray squirrel and Rodney's love interest. The series most likely takes place in the summertime, seeing as none of the child characters in the show attend school and don't appear to be home-schooled. The show is set in Grand Rapids, Minnesota.
He apparently cannot write, shown when Rodney is writing a goodbye note, and is actually a bunch of squiggles, vertical and horizontally; when he tries to spell Andy's name, he spells it "Adny". He once received a letter about being a blue tailed "stump fumbler". Rodney says he "dyed it".
