Hammy is a hyperactive, naive, and very childish American red squirrel in Over the Hedge and his own short Hammy's Boomerang Adventure. He was voiced by Steve Carell.


Hammy is a hyperactive, red squirrel, whose mouth moves as fast as his feet. He is naive and very childish in nature with an extremely short attention span. He often gets on the nerves of those around him, but endears himself to them at the same time, as long as he stays away from the super energy drinks anyway. Hammy can run at the speed of light and has fast reflexes. His favorite food is cookies.

Movie role

Upon first meeting RJ, Hammy became extremely fond of him, completely naive at the fact that RJ was using them.


  • "But I like the cookie."
  • [running along the hedge, then, from far away] "IT NEVER ENDS!!!" [runs the opposite way and runs back to the group] "It never ends that way too!"
  • [looking up at Vincent, shaking in fear] Scary clown."
  • "I am a crazy rabid squirrel! I WANT MY COOKIES!!"
  • "The weed hacker, Verne...the weed hacker!"
  • "I filled the log! I found my nuts!"
