Benny is the deuteragonist from Disney's 2006 CG animated film The Wild and a major character in The Wild and Freedom. He is a grey squirrel who is Samson's best friend and Bridget's boyfriend. He is also the only one who knows Samson is not from the wild.
He is voiced by Jim Belushi, who also voiced Rocko in The Pebble and the Penguin and Kirk the Woodsman in Hoodwinked!.
Benny is a street-smart squirrel with great knowledge. He is the only one in the zoo who knows Samson's secret about not being from the wild. Benny apparently has a huge crush on the giraffe named Bridget, and at the beginning of the movie he asks her out, but she refuses. Benny is softhearted and sweet. However, he can be bossy at times. Benny is good friends with Samson and the snake Larry, but doesn't always approve of Nigel's ideas. Benny also cares about Ryan and deeply loves Bridget, who later becomes his girlfriend after he says the proper words to motivate her enough to kiss him.
