Before Scaredy Squirrel, there was this annoying pet who happened to be a squirrel version of Bloo and Jake Spidermonkey.
Gender: Male
Type: Moronic Pet Squirrel
Species: Squirrel
Portrayed by: Richard Steven Horvitz
Status: Alive
Media of origin: Squirrel Boy


Rodney J. Squirrel is the main protagonist of Squirrel Boy. He is Andy Johnson's best friend and pet. He's a dimwitted squirrel who lacks good judgment and critical thinking and often finds himself in many sticky situations due to his stupidity.

He is voiced by Richard Steven Horvitz, who also voiced Billy from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.

Why He Sucks

  1. Much like Jake Spidermonkey, he comes off as a rip-off of Bloo from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, except that Rodney was never likable in the first place, to the point of making Bloo's flanderized self look like a more tolerable character.
  2. He frequently causes trouble, especially towards Andy's father, and he rarely, if ever, got his comeuppance a few times, making him a Karma Houdini.
  3. Also similar to Bloo, but even worse than him, he's an obnoxious, selfish, and troublesome non-human best friend towards Andy who lacks responsibility, annoys others, tries to find loopholes around preventions, is lazy, and is quite gluttonous.
  4. His voice, while good for the most part, can get really annoying at times, despite being voiced by a legendary actor like Richard Steven Horvitz, who also did the voice of Orthopox from the Destroy All Humans video games, Billy from The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, and Zim from Invader Zim.
  5. He's even a poor man's Eric Duckman, knowing that Duckman actually DOES get his comeuppance for his horrible actions, while this guy doesn't get his comeuppance a few times. This is ironic if you think about it, as both Squirrel Boy and Duckman share Everett Peck as their creator.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. He does get his comeuppance most of the time, but that isn't enough to spare him from the Karma Houdini category.
  2. His voice acting can be good most of the time.
  3. He does have a passable character design, and it isn't too bad.
