Set in the fictitious town called Oakton, Surly is a mischievous squirrel on a mission to find the tastiest nuts for winter. When his latest scheme goes awry and ends up blowing up the park animals’ winter food supply, he is banished from the park to survive in the city streets. Joined by his rat friend Buddy, they soon discover a nut shop that has enough of his favorite food to make it through winter. Gathering a crackerjack crew of critters, he schemes to pull off a heist of nutrageous proportions. But unwittingly they find themselves embroiled in something much more complicated when it turns out the place is owned by ruthless robbers planning to rob the local bank. Now it is up to Surly and his furry friends to embark on a hilarious adventure to stop the robbers’ bank heist and save the town.

The DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D include two bonus animated shorts: “Surly Squirrel” and “Nuts & Robbers.” Exclusive to Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D are deleted scenes, storyboards, “The Great Nut Heist” featurette and dance-off end credits.
