One of our favorite nutty characters from the Ice Age franchise is making his return to our screens. The chaotic and uncoordinated saber-toothed squirrel, Scrat is back. He will be making his Disney+ debut with six all-new animated shorts titled, Ice Age: Scrat Tales. But he is not alone, as he is joined by the adorable, Baby Scrat. While alone there is a lot of love between them. But don’t let that acorn get in between then because then all feelings towards each other get thrown out the window. Below you can check out the trailer provided by Disney+.
Parenting is no picnic, it can be the nuttiest thing a person or a squirrel can experience in a lifetime. Especially if the temptation of an acorn crosses your path from time to time. The trailer was hilarious as should be the six-animated shorts that we are going to be treated to. Below are the titles of the six shorts in Ice Age: Scrat Tales, a description, along with their creative teams.
