Rodney (left) and Andy (right)

Squirrel Boy centers on the lives of an anthropomorphic squirrel named Rodney (Richard Steven Horvitz), who is full of crazy ideas and get-rich-quick schemes, and his best friend and owner, a boy named Andy (Pamela Adlon). In the family are Bob (Kurtwood Smith), Andy's pessimistic and unlucky father who utterly dislikes Rodney, and Lucille (Nancy Sullivan), Andy's cheery and mild-tempered mother.

Andy and Rodney are arch-enemies with a rowdy boy named Kyle (Billy West) and his anthropomorphic parrot, Salty Mike (Carlos Alazraqui), who constantly pick on Andy and Rodney and act as bullies towards them. Other characters in the show include Oscar (Jason Spisak), Andy's nerdy human friend with overprotective parents, Leon (Tom Kenny), a stray, blue squirrel who is Rodney's friend and lives in a tree in Andy's backyard, and Darlene (Monica Lee Gradischek), a yellow, stray squirrel who is Rodney's love interest.
