The Nut Job Character Bios:


Underneath the “fluff” exterior is a sarcastic rogue squirrel who distrusts everything that breathes. With a no-holds-barred attitude, it is every rodent for himself. From an early age, Surly has constantly been searching for opportunities and dishonest methods to pull off his schemes. His jaded past has made this “tough nut to crack” an outcast, but nonetheless the ultimate survivor. Despite his deceitfulness and lies, Surly does demonstrate that he has a bit of a conscience. Quick as a whip and quick on his paws, this stubborn rodent rises above the rules, outrages his community and believes love is for chumps … that is until he meets the heroine Andie.

Buddy is Surly’s little rat “brother”, partner in crime and endearing side-kick. With his innate innocence, Buddy eagerly performs any stunt demanded of him without objecting or considering the consequences. He is accustomed to the unbridled surliness of Surly and Buddy’s acceptance and tolerance levels are exceeded only by his dimwittedness. Although he is a little naïve and too trusting, his heart is always in the right place even when he gets repeatedly duped into Surly's schemes – which continuously go awry. This gentle, quiet and grubby rat is the only gullible partner Surly can rely upon. Buddy is as “nutty as a fruitcake” but is the friend that saves Surly from Surly.



Grayson is a good-natured and likeable narcissist. Torn between his mirror and adoring fans, this grey squirrel is easily the most handsome, witty, charming and brilliant guy that he’s ever met. Although in reality he is quite dense, he lends his polished good looks and athletic abilities to rescue those in need. This grey squirrel may appear to be the overall package – however, it becomes quite evident that this self-absorbed aspiring leader has more than a few “nuts and bolts” loose.


With her compassionate heart, radiating warmth, intelligence and nurturing disposition, it’s easy to see why the entire park has faith, trust and confidence in Andie. Everyone that is, except for Surly. The amount of care she puts into her work is commendable. Whether it’s saving lives, solving riddles or lending a helping hand, this red squirrel excels at everything she takes on. The trouble is Andie is becoming a workaholic. Although she is content as one of Raccoon’s key delegates, her deepest desire is for everyone to get along. The paths that Andie chooses to take could leave her in peril, or it could lead this beloved auburn squirrel to be in charge of the park that she’s already “nuts about”.



King’s mutt that looks intimidating but can’t hurt a fly. She has a lot of licks to spare, and wants nothing but to be accepted and loved. Loyal to whomever has the dog whistle, Precious will do whatever it takes to never set her paw back into the pound.

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!)

Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
