Trivia While real flying squirrels are really just gliding squirrels, the one in this short seems to be able to fly like a bird, even hovering and changing direction in midair. Five years later, the world would be introduced to another animated squirrel, Rocky, who could fly in this way. Possibly Jay Ward, creator of Rocky the Flying Squirrel, was inspired by this short.
