The series chronicles the adventures of Scaredy, an energetic squirrel, and his best friend Dave, a skunk. Their antics take place in fictional Balsa City, and often at the local supermarket the Stash n' Hoard, where Scaredy works as a stacker.
Scaredy (voiced by Terry McGurrin) - A smart, germophobic, and occasionally shy squirrel who works as a stacker at a grocery store called Stash 'n Hoard and is fond of cleaning.
Nestor (voiced by Patrick McKenna) - Nestor is a yellow canary who is the manager of Stash 'n Hoard. He is also Scaredy's boss and one of his enemies.
Momma (voiced by Jayne Eastwood) - A grouchy pastel pink bird who owns the Stash n' Hoard, and who is Nestor's mother. Momma makes surprise appearances at any time, and is fond of firing people.
Paddy (voiced by David Berni) - A gray, egotistical ferret who is always making trouble for Scaredy.
Richard - Richard is Scaredy's inanimate pet plant. Richard seems to be slightly sadistic as seen when he forces Scaredy to wear the "Hat of Pain".
Sally (voiced by Linda Kash) - A turquoise trout who is deeply in love with Scaredy. Sally has lots of confidence and she thinks she and Scaredy could be a good couple, when in truth Scaredy is freaked out by her.
Mildred (voiced by Jamie Watson) - A frog who works at the Stash n' Hoard and seems to be Nestor's only friend. She is always seen drinking a bottle of soda and is always burping.
