Camera, lights … Squirrel gets ready for his big moment on the Earthquake shoot.

He speaks ‘squirrel’ rather than any language in particular, yet this little chap sees all and knows all. He saves Badu in the Cyclone film and Tsunami, and brings both sense and humour to all of The Tales of Disasters films.

Another of Jim Kroupa’s creations (you can just see the top of Jim’s head here, as he arranges him in the rubble of the Earthquake set before filming) with just the right number of mechanisms to make his long-suffering personality shine through.
