Shelby. Unlike Shelby, Mackenzie is thin. Mackenzie's most famous scene is the scene where she tries to hit a turtle named Verne with a thick book, but instead hits Shelby in the face. Although Mackenzie is shown to have contempt for Verne, she has compassion for Ozzie the Possum, crying when he is hit by a car. This shows that Mackenzie is one of the few, human characters in Over the Hedge that actually cares for animal life. Unlike Shelby, who admires the Verminator, Mackenzie has a look of disgust when the Verminator shows up to kill the animals. This further demonstrates Mackenzie's care for animal life and well-being. Mackenzie's most prominent character trait is how she is easily grossed out by the animals. In most of her scenes, she is shrieking "Eww!"
