YMMV / Scaredy Squirrel

  • Genius Bonus: In "The Corgin", Dave paints a green clog and calls it "Voices of Flame", an allusion to the similarly minimalist Voice of Fire.
  • Growing the Beard: The very early episodes weren't that impressive, but after a while the humour became more solid and characters were given more development. It's a shame Cartoon Network gave up on it so quickly.
  • The Woobie: Scaredy is one of these. Also Dave has his woobie-ish moments.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Nestor crosses this in The Stackinator where he replaces Scaredy with a machine.
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders: Nestor, Full Stop.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The "Scaredy Squirrel Safety Corner" segments are accompanied by an arrangement of "Theme to 'A Summer Place'".
    • It also sounds similar to "Hey! Pachuco!" by Royal Crown Revue.
  • Tear Jerker: The Stackinator episode where Scaredy gets replaced by a machine. In particular, the scene where he sits outside the store and lets a few tears roll down his face. He most definitely counts as The Woobie after that episode. The end part where Scaredy and Dave melt the blocks of ice with their hugs is a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming.
  • The Scrappy: Nestor.
    • Dave to an extent. Some of its writing in season two didn't help matters for his character.
  • They Copied It, So It Sucks: Most haters claim this show to be a rip-off of Spongebob Squarepants because of how identical the characters are note .
    • Furthermore, the Hungarian casting director managed to give Scaredy the same voice as SpongeBob!
  • Ugly Cute: Dave. Just look at that soft, bushy, huggable tail of his. And he's a skunk!
    • Chip the chubby-faced little squirrel in "Camp and Consequences".
