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 humor became more solid and characters were given more development. It's a shame Cartoon Network gave up on it so quickly.
  • 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 the writing in season two didn't help matters for his character.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: A good number of people that hate this show hate it because it has nothing in common with the books the show is based off. Ironically though, Melanie Watts, the person who wrote the books, contributed to the cartoon, helping with writing many of the episodes and other elements.
  • They Copied It, So It Sucks: Most people that hate this show claim this show to be a rip-off of Spongebob Squarepants because of how identical the characters are. But in reality, other than having the characters somewhat similar, the two cartoons don't have very much in common, as the character personalities are very different than the Spongbob characters.
    • 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".
  • The Woobie: Scaredy is one of these. Also Dave has his woobie-ish moments.
