Hero Overview

Scrat is the iconic central character of the Ice Age franchise, being a major character in the five films, and also the protagonist of his own short films Gone Nutty, No Time For Nuts, Scrat's Continental Crack-up and Cosmic Scrat-tastrophe, and a cameo character in Sid's short, Surviving Sid. He is also the protagonist of the videogames Ice Age: The Meltdown and of the 2019 Ice Age: Scrat' s Nutty Adventure. He is an acorn-obsessed saber-toothed squirrel.

He is voiced by director Chris Wedge.

Personality

Scrat is a squirrel who is totally obsessed with acorns, however he never manages to achieve one and instead causes himself massive physical pain. Scrat is also responsible for several important occurrences in the Paleolithic ice age such as Pangea and the formation of Death Valley. Scrat's uncontrollable desire for acorns has proven to be very self-destructive, and to everyone around him, even destroying an entire civilization of Scratlantis.

Appearance

Scrat is a saber-tooth squirrel with a gray bushy tail, pink thumbs and toes, sharp teeth, short furry ears, and a gray torso.

Movies

Ice Age

Scrat attempts to find a place to store his acorn for the winter. Eventually, as he tries to stomp it into the ground, he inadvertently causes a large crack to form in the ice that extends for miles before setting off a large avalanche which nearly crushes him. He barely escapes but finds himself getting stepped on by a herd of prehistoric animals migrating south in order to escape the forthcoming ice age.

20,000 years later, Scrat, frozen in a block of ice, ends up on the shores of a tropical island. As the ice slowly melts, an acorn that was also frozen in the same ice block is washed away, to his horror. Scrat then finds a coconut and tries stomp it into the ground, only to mistakenly trigger a volcanic eruption.

Ice Age 2: The Meltdown

Scrat climbs up the glacier and at the top sticks the acorn he has into the ice. This forms a crack in the glacier, which widens into a fissure, diverting the flood and saving the animals in the valley; Scrat is then washed away.

Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

He has been fighting with Scratte for the acorn.

Ice Age 4: Continental Drift

Scrat inadvertently causes the break up of Pangaea, which also costs the animals their home and (with the land bridge destroyed,) travel to the land where Manny, Sid, Diego, and Granny found themselves in when they were separated.

In the film's epilogue, Scrat discovers the island on the map, known as Scratlantis (a parody of Atlantis), but his uncontrollable urge to hunt acorns in the acorn-rich city inadvertently causes the entire island to sink when he unplugs an acorn drain holder; Scrat is then ejected into a newly created desert landscape, through which he screams.

Ice Age 5: Collision Course

Scrat is once again trying to bury his acorn but accidentally activates an abandoned alien ship that takes him into deep space, where he unwittingly sends several asteroids en route to a collision with Earth including one of them that threatens all life on Earth.

In the film's epilogue, Scrat keeps struggling to control the alien ship until it crashes on Mars, destroying all life on the planet.

In a mid-credits scene, Scrat finds his acorn, but gets beaten by some doors.

Scrat: Spaced Out

This mini movie serves as deleted scenes from Ice Age: Collision Course. It starts in the events of the film.

When Scrat is preparing to go back to Earth, he gets captured by female alien sabretooth-squirrels from a species named Scratazon. The leader of the aliens gets his acorn, but she is surprised by Scrat and ends up droping it. The leader orders the other aliens to kill Scrat and tries to leave, stealing his acorn.

Scrat uses a tractor beam to recover his acorn, but the leader of the aliens uses one too. They engage in a tug of war until the nutrogen of the acorn breaks causing the nut to blow up. The explosion destroys the ship and forms a black hole that starts to suck everything. Scrat jumps the debris and manages to get his acorn, just to be sucked by the black hole.

However, Scrat gets spit out from the black hole with his acorn and prepares to eat it, unluckily the black hole opens again and sucks his acorn, leaving Scrat screaming in frustration.

Ice Age: Scrat's Nutty Adventure

In this game, Scrat appears as the playble character and protagonist.

Scrat is searching for a new acorn and founds out about the existence of Cristals acorns. He starts to search them and fights with Manny, Sid and Diego's old enemies like Maelstrom and Cretaceous, Carl and Frank and Rudy, he even has to fight a giant pterodattile. At the end he enters in a temple and gets captured by another space ship which reveals to be commanded by a Scratazon.

Voice

He doesn't speak, but his vocals are done by Chris Wedge. Kevin Bacon was considered to voice Scrat before Chris Wedge was cast.

Trivia

  • As of 2013, Scrat is the official mascot of Blue Sky Studios.
  • Despite the fact that Scrat was made to be a fictional creature, a species similar to Scrat dubbed Cronopio was discovered in the Rio Negro region of Argentina in 2011 by paleontologist Guillermo Rougier.
  • He is similar to Wile E. Coyote from Looney Tunes:
    • Both are wild animals.
    • Both don't speak (though did speak in rare occasions however).
    • Both are highly intelligent, cunning, fast, and strong, but are incompetent scapegoats who are always physically punished through comedic slapstick.
    • Both accidentally cause destruction and start catastrophes from their failed plans and ideas, yet can survive even the worst and most impossible of events happening.
    • Both have grit and constantly get outsmarted by their prey (Scrat by his acorn, and Wile E. Coyote by The Road Runner), but never quit to achieve their goals.
    • Both have similar facial expressions, and make sounds of desperation while speaking in exclamation points.
    • Both have their own outings out from their prey.
    • Both hate gravity more than their prey.
  • Scrat made an appearance in the animated film, Dragon Rider.
