This is nuts

People, get ready for one of the best pages on the Internets; Sugar Bush Squirrel.

It's the most chock-full, animated GIF, current-event-driven, no-topic-too-political-or-religious, squirrel pun-licious page you will ever see.


Sugar Bush was found and rescued as a baby by Ms. Kelly Foxton, only to be raised as an International supermodel. Here's Sugar Bush's photo shoot on a new heir to the throne in Japan:


No topic is too touchy for Sugar Bush! Here is Reverend Nut, giving powerful, paw-banging sermons...


Inspiring the troops;


Pushing back  on Kim Jong Il;


The page literally goes on and on and on! Right Keely S.?

OMG - Just what I need - another addiction.

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 09:55 AM


I love the one of him in the kimono. Very cute!

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 09:58 AM

That's lovely! My baby Smoothie love to have his picture taken. If he sees a camera he'll run up to it and strike a pose!

Unfortunately camera's and flashes scar my oldest, Sandy. But we still managed to get a few decent family photos!

There is NO WAY!! I HAVE a pet squirrel that I raised from a bottle as well (whose photo has NOT yet made it to ranks of CO) - and there is no possible way he would be caught dead dressed up or water skiing. He just won't have it! How DO you do it?

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:02 AM

I thought I loved squirrels before, but now, I am INSANE over them. At least, over SUGAR BUSH! LURVE HIM!

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:05 AM

Im mad the squirrel has a larger wardrobe than me. thats.......NUts!! sorry had to

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:05 AM

lol. wth?

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:09 AM

My mind is blown. I thought it was goofy enough when Bob Ross had a squirrel in his pocket while he painted Happy Little Trees, but this just wreaks havoc with my head. It's too cute, but wow...

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:13 AM

the strangest thing aboot this, is that the little guy seems to be enjoying himself.

My goodness, where do the clothes come from and how do you dress a squirrel? *envisions the process* it must really like its clothes!

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:18 AM


 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:19 AM

This isn't taxidermy is it????? Please say it isn't so!!!!

What the...?? The clothes, the posing. I am ded from confusion and cuteness.

@Kris - is it 'cause of the pixels?

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:31 AM

It isn't so Jen. This is a quote from the link Meg provided under the photo's title "Sugar Bush Squirrel is a real, live Eastern Gray Squirrel who is owned and photographed by Ms. Kelly Foxton. Rescued, as a baby in her nest, from a tree which was being cut down, she is now living the 'good life' with Kelly in Boca Raton, Florida."

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:31 AM

OMG...I'm the first:

LURVE the FURdora!!!

*falls on floor*

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:36 AM

Reminds me of the Victorian fascination with taxidermy animals set up like people- frogs playing in bands, flirting squirrels and mice in little parlors...

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:39 AM

Chanpon, definitely the pixels. Definitely.

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:41 AM

I dont think people need to be doing this with their pets. Wether the squirl likes it or not, it is not cute...

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:42 AM

Cute. But far too right wing.

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:45 AM

He is SO cute! Love those beady little eyes. I can't imagine how he will stand still long enough to be photographed - that's amazing!

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:45 AM

That site is a guilty pleasure. So cute, but I can't help feeling like the poor thing is being exploited. I mean 20 photos would be one thing, but 2000? Also, the rara military aspect creeps me out no end. Maybe Sugarbush is a pacifist?

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 10:49 AM

that IS nuts.


 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 11:01 AM

Taxidermy isn't cute, CO :(

[Neither is ignorance, Lucy. http://www.sugarbushsquirrel.com/ - Ed.]

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 11:13 AM

I laughed so loud my co-workers had to come and see my screen only to join in to laugh-a-ton!!!!

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 11:14 AM

It's not taxidermy!

Scroll down to the middle of this page, and Sugar Bush will go all kung-fu on your naysaying 'tocks:

I like Sugar Bush dressed as the Pontiff myself.

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 11:32 AM

This is made infinitely better by the fact that THERE ARE PLUSH SUGAR BUSH SQUIRRELS!!! *Wants to buy them ALL*

Quick question -- does "Patito Gigante" mean Enormous Duckling?

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 11:33 AM

ew. I wish this had been a chipmunk. They're cute. Squirrels aren't. Sorry.

I'm a big baby duck, baby. My cousin Gansito Enorme is muy mas grande, though.

Here's my mugshot from '79, when I was hauled in for "obstructing a public waterway":

I don't think this is a stuffed squirrel - I think it is an adorable squirrelly guy!

I love it!

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 11:48 AM

I agree with Jamie that the Sugar Bush Squirrel website is a too right wing for my taste ("Put Prayer Back in School" . . . yikes). I do like the squirrel dressed as the Pontiff and Anutkin Skywalker tho :)

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 12:02 PM

If that is not faked it is definitely cruelty to animals. I can not imagine that a squirrel wants to abused to dress up like a clown for the amusement of some dumbasses.
I'm really surprised something like that is shown on this website.

[By posting this comment, you've enlisted yourself into the ranks of us "dumbasses", you know. Welcome to the Dunderdrome! - Ed.]

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 12:02 PM

We've seen Sugar Bush before: http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload/2007/06/um-this-squirre.html

I agree with Jamie - too right wing for me. Incredible attention to detail though - I can't imagine how much time goes into these outfits and poses. Very impressive.

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 12:03 PM

It's too bad the woman who runs the site is absolutely crazy. Cute squirrel though!

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 12:20 PM

Wow, I have to really get on my Bertha stories. An impressive site (though a tad hawkish).

Curiously, I saw a family of wild squirrels today -- literally dozens -- near a filling station. They were much cuter in the wild, but that's just my opinion.

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 12:22 PM

Not to add into the commentroversy... but "too right wing"???

So, no one can have an opinion or outlook that may be different from yours?

And people wonder why I don't respect so-called "liberals"

Squirrel lover
 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 12:22 PM

I don't think they're saying that because the woman who runs the site is clearly a conservative...I think it's more in response to the sheer militanism of it all. There have been plenty of people complaining about posts done by people who were "too liberal," too, after all.

Relax. Have some tapioca. It's fresh with apricots!

Jupiter Star
 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 12:26 PM

Yeah, I know... I guess it just ticks me off how much people complain when other people are different. Especially when there's a SUPER-CUTE SQUIRREL involved!!!

Thanks for the perspective and the tapioca, Jupiter Star. Hmm, squirrels and tapioca....

Now THAT'S the next Sugar Bush masterpiece photo if I ever heard it!

Squirrel Lover -- you're doing exactly what you say you hate.

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 12:42 PM

(er, heh, sorry, Jupiter Star. Somehow I'm not feeling conciliatory.)

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 12:44 PM

"Relax. Have some tapioca."

Or, if tapioca isn't your "thang," how 'bout some PUDU PUDDINGS!

(I really can't believe nobody let fly with a pudu/pudding pun before now... where the hell is Aubrey when we need her?)

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 12:46 PM

What a site! Here's a link where you can make print and cut out your own Sugar Bush paper doll. He needs a Paws Up! shirt. :)


 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 12:49 PM

J. Bo -- probably working, the silly thing

 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 12:51 PM

Teho-- lamest excuse EVAR, sez I (the totally broke, depressed, currently unemployed job-hunter)...

J. Bo
 |  Jun 04, 2008 at 12:55 PM

It's okay, Theo, I am! *Offers up more of the yummy homemade pudding things to the masses* Go on, take it, I've got plenty more squirreled away...
