The Cartoon Network Wiki

Scaredy Squirrel is a 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 2013, Scaredy Squirrel has officially been removed from Cartoon Network's schedule. However, the show returned to another channel, Qubo, on March 27, 2017 (Along with Sidekick) after Cartoon Network lost the rights to the two aforementioned shows. As of January 5, 2018, Sidekick was still airing on the channel while Scaredy Squirrel left the channel, though due to Qubo's shutdown in early 2021, Sidekick no longer airs on television.

As of 2021, the series currently airs on Cartoon Network in Canada.


Scaredy Squirrel

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 tiniest of messes on some occasions. He owns a "pet" cactus named Richard whom he cares for everyday. Though it's 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.
