"He" = H? A? M?

Murphy's Law relevant?

"He" = H? No A? I don't know, possibly M? Well...I *think* so. Assume yes

Murphy's Law relevant? Extremely, hence the title. Murphy isn't "his" name.

True story? FYOI? FSEI? this

Is "he" an animal? Yes A mythical creature? DYOD of 'mythical'...I'm not entirely sure there were real animals of his kind, but there were probably similar ones. He's fictional, anyway.

Is it one of the little short films that Pixar always includes before their full length movies? (I'm thinking of films like the birds on the wire from one of the Toy Story movies and the squirrel-like thing in the Ice Age movies. Or even the original Pixar lamp short film, but that's not an animal, so never mind.)

Is it one of the little short films that Pixar always includes before their full length movies? yes, although I didn't think what I was seeing was a Pixar film(I'm thinking of films like the birds on the wire from one of the Toy Story movies and the squirrel-like thing in the Ice Age movies. it's this one =)Or even the original Pixar lamp short film, but that's not an animal, so never mind.)

Someone already asked if he is part of an advert so…going in a new direction.

Is he animated to look realistic?
Or more cartoonish?

Is he a:
Mammal?
Reptile?
Fish?
Bird?
Single-celled organism?
Species that is extinct?
Species that never existed? Like a unicorn?

Species that is extinct? apparently
Species that never existed? possibly Like a unicorn? but not this. More like he may have existed and I just have no idea what his species would be called.

Was it from that new movie Rio?
This is really enough for a ***SPOILER***, I think =)

I went to see Rio with my mom on Saturday. Before the movie started, you know how they do previews and all of that. They had a short clip with the character "Scrat" commonly shown before Ice Age Pixar films. As usual, Scrat was fruitlessly chasing an acorn. This time he fell down a hole literally into the center of the Earth, landing on the solid core. The acorn bounced away from him, and he began running after it, spinning the core around frantically as he did so. As the Earth's core whirled around, the continents broke apart on the surface, forming them into their modern appearance. Scrat and his acorn got flung back up the hole they fell down, landing on the bit of glacier Scrat had left...only for the glacier to crack in half, the other half carrying Scrat's beloved acorn away. And...apparently Scrat doesn't swim. =( Poor Scrat...

Oh you're right. I had it in the back of my head that Ice Age was Pixar, but the Internet tells me that it isn't.

I haven't seen the newest Ice Age movie, but I *think* I've seen the newest short film of the squirrel-thing on YouTube. Is it the one where he goes to the center of the earth and breaks up Pangaea?

Wait, so did he drown or was he stuck on the glacier for all eternity? Either way that's sad.

Ice Age isn't Pixar? I thought it was, too...Huh, apparently I didn't do enough research.

And Greg...apparently he's stuck on the glacier. Unless it melts. But he lost his ACORN. =( *cries for Scrat*

Huh. Ice Age (and Rio) are neither Pixar OR Dreamworks...some company called Blue Sky?!

They did Robots and Horton Hears a Who.

Who knew?
