Scrat is putting one last acorn into a huge and very neatly arranged stash, but it keeps popping up. He jumps on it -- once too often, and the whole stockpile falls through a knothole in the tree stump. The acorns and Scrat fall a very long way; on the way down, Scrat collects them into a huge ball. Everything hits the ground, and Scrat must pull out of the snow quickly to avoid one last acorn, which is becoming red-hot from the reentry force. It hits the Earth, with a major impact. But at least Scrat has that acorn - or does he? Written by

GONE NUTTY stars the cute little mouse-like thing from ICE AGE and consists of the many funny and painful things this guy does to try to break open this acorn. Clever writing take a very simple idea and milk the very most from it.
How can anyone NOT like this cute little short that accompanied the release of ICE AGE?! This Fox short is amazingly good and quite comparable to products coming from Pixar and Dreamworks--in fact, I think it was much more enjoyable than the competition for the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film from Pixar (BOUNDIN')--mostly because although BOUNDIN' was well animated, the story itself wasn't great. And that is where GONE NUTTY really excels. I remember the first time I saw it in the theater--lots of people were laughing out loud and that should be a good reason for considering this film for the Oscar. While it did lose to the very imaginative and weird HARVIE KRUMPET, the makers of this film have nothing to complain about--GONE NUTTY was a lovely short as was KRUMPET. Both are well worth your time.
