A short-lived Creator/CartoonNetwork animated series, ''Squirrel Boy'' was created by Everett Peck (best known for ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}''). Airing for two seasons and 52 11-minute episodes, along with 6 2-minute shorts (2006-2008), the series followed the adventures of the ordinary 9 year-old boy, Andy Johnson and his anthropomorphic pet squirrel/best friend, Rodney, who is loaded with get-rich-quick schemes. While the show received decent reception from critics, it is better known for its large PeripheryHatedom which may have even led to its swift cancellation. The reasons for why are somewhat mysterious and [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement probably better better ignored]].

No relation to ComicBook/SquirrelGirl.

-->"Maybe. Are you thinking there's an untapped market for edible socks?"
* AxCrazy: [[spoiler:Archie]], Kyle, and the crazy dog.
* AllJustADream: "The Rod Squad' episode was actually just a dream he had after he passed out eating several boxes of cinnamon buns which the family needed for an event... a problem he attempted to solve in his dream.
* {{Bandito}}: Salty Mike becomes one in "Gumfight at the S'Okay Corral".
* BeeAfraid: In one episode it's shown that Leon's [[BizarreTasteInFood favorite flavor of cake]] is wasp nest.

* DerangedAnimation
* TheDitz: Kyle and Ranger Stu.
* DogsHateSquirrels: Rodney along with his friends would often be attacked by a vicious AngryGuardDog referred to as the "Crazy Dog". This got [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] in a later episode where they run into his formerly vicious brother who shares the house with the aforementioned hound. Although he's a NiceGuy, he ends up getting frequently beaten up by the guys, because they have him mixed up with the Crazy Dog who's attacking them at the same time.
* DumbMuscle: Ranger Stu
* ExposedAnimalBellybutton: Rodney.
* EyeGlasses: Andy.
* FourFingeredHands: Surprisingly averted with pretty much every character, including the animals. The animals, however, mostly have three toes on each foot. Rodney's cousin Eddie has four toes.

* IdiotHero: Rodney.
* IllTakeTwoBeersToo: In "Ice Cream Anti-Social", Rodney orders two sludgies, and Andy says he'll have the same.
* LargeHam: Rodney.

* NoEnding: Some episodes ended without anything really being resolved.
* NoNameGiven: Any non-Johnson.
* OnlySaneMan: Mr. J.
* PsychoPoodle: In the episode ''The Rod Squad'', Rodney eats all the sticky buns Andy's mom bought. Afraid that his friend will take the fall for it, Rodney ropes Leon and Darlene into a scheme to steal some from the sticky bun factory. But when Darlene and Leon finally understand his scheme and goals, they [[NotWhatISignedOnFor back out]] and Rodney goes in alone, only to be attacked by the factory's security and the {{Angry Guard Dog}}s used are vicious white poodles.

* RamblingOldManMonologue: Rodney's grandfather has a habit of delivering these.
* RuleOfFunny
