Who Is Scrat?
People who are not fans of the franchise may not recognize the character. However, Scrat the squirrel’s charm and cuteness can win anyone over in no time. Scrat is a cute squirrel that is obsessed with acorns that can put himself in danger to get to them. He is always on a hunt for more acorns, to either eat or consume. But as it happens, fate always gets in the way and Scrat is not able to easily take the acorn home.
Throughout the various Ice Age movies, Scrat has been a consistent character. In between the scenes, he can be seen chasing acorns. The saber-toothed squirrel loves collecting acorns and does not hesitate in putting his life in danger for it.

In 2013, the squirrel was named the mascot of Blue Sky Studios, which is a subsidiary of 20th Century Fox. The 20th Century Fox is now owned by Disney.
The character is so loved that it is also a part of the famous game Scrat’s Nutty Adventure. Around 89% of the people who downloaded the game liked it.
