    Squirrel Cafe! Now we’re talking! Let’s just dig a tunnel and catch them by suprise! Maybe there will be chipmunks and rabbits too! I am getting too excited and ahead of myself. The boys and me better be mapping out a plan right away.

    Is that a battle plan on the table? Did the plankie plot caper burn out so fast that squirrels had to be brought in? I hope not—the plankie caper still needs explaining…like how did Rotten Branch Tree dog purchase tickets and mail invitations? Need more…….

    As I was savoring the delicious anticipation of where this plot development will take us, the thought occurred to me…

    As prominent a part as squirrels play in literally dozens of comic strips, why is there no strip STARRING a squirrel? (Doesn’t count if it equally stars a turtle and a raccoon.)

    I suppose the comedic possibilities of squirrels don’t make up for the lack of a ready-made audience such as keeps Marmaduke and Heathcliff going.

    Hey y’all. One of my favorites is available here called Bob the Squirrell. It’s great and Frank (the artrist) has a wonderful sense of humor. highly recommend it.

    They’ve had squirrels featured prominently from time to time on Dog eat Doug as well, and they’re cute. I wouldn’t mind seeing more squirrels in comics.

    What I wonder is when they’re going to have a Cat Cafe for all those lovely cats Poncho lives with?

    Uh, Chip and Dale are chipmunks, not squirrels. Sorry, can’t help it if there’s a Disney freak inside me.

    Aren’t chipmunks land-squirrels scooteratw?

    (also, Chip and Dale do live in a tree-hollow).

    On the nail, TerryLonewolf (though pschearer may dock you for the point that it also equally-bills a moose).

    I too love Bob The Squirrel. Squirrels are certainly invading the minds of our beloved cartoonists lately.

    doctortoon - The Rodent Revolution has taken to building permanent structures now.

    can’t forget Rat in Pearls Before Swine…he’s by far the rodent ring leader!

    Lonewolf - Good point, you are absolutely correct.

    doctortoon - Yep, they either have a strong union or a good agent.

    Right now there’s a Squirrel involved in the story line of Little Dog Lost which can be pretty funny. My dogs LOVE the Squirrels in our backyard..that is to say CHASE them, but of course they never catch them. Pretty funny to watch.

    PPP might want to enlist Carmen’s cats to help the Pooches regain their lot.

    By the way there are squirrels featured from time to time in ROSE IS ROSE…not to mention OVER THE HEDGE.

    Chipmunks and ground squirrels are two different critters, though related. Ground squirrels don’t have those back stripes, for one.

    I look forward to Poncho’s take on that scene from “Downfall” when the battle goes against the pooches.

    To curry favour is to bring pleasure. To curry Chicken Vindaloo is to bring satisfied smiles. But -dear friends- To curry a squirrel is to ask for disasters beyond a wild one’s imagination….

    Beware fair folk, beware I say!

    Uh…. Mrs. Tubbsbottl says aye for that!

    Ah, I forgot about Bob the Squirrel. But tote that up against all the dog and cat strips and it still makes my point.

    Where I live is a-swarm with rodents. I have christened them as follows: squirrels = tree rats mice = little rats chipmunks = cute rats rats = rat rats
