A sheep dances proudly in his southwestern landscape, until one day his wool is sheared and he is left naked. He's depressed and shy, until a cheerful jackalope comes along and shows him how to leap proudly and not to be ashamed.

Penguins discover a lost egg and decide hatching until the mother appears. When it opens unexpectedly, the new duck -Ducky- is trained as a penguin while a jealous King Julien wants to raise him to be his second in command.
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

This also is known as "Scrat's Missing Adventure." Scrat's obsession with his having his nuts organized just right turns out to be his undoing in this crazy animated short, included in the "Ice Age DVD."
This little squirrel became a big hit in the feature film and was awarded with a much bigger role in the sequel. He's now part of the Ice Age gang, if you will. This bonus short shows that he had built up quite a collection of acorns in a hollow tree. But, for some strange reason - call it "perfectionism," that last acorn won't stay put where it is supposed to be. It keeps popping out. Instead of just leaving it as it is, which wouldn't have changed anything, Scrat goes out of his way to make it all look good.....and disaster is the result.
What happens when his little nest of acorns is disrupted is too wild to describe here. It has to be seen to be believed. Of course, it's outrageous but it's a cartoon, and it is fun to watch.
P.S. I viewed it a second time after writing the above review....and enjoyed it even more. This time I really appreciated all the funny noises Chris Wedge made, as Scat the squirrel.
