Role in the Game

A Jewel of a Nut (Case #1)

Rodney - Sunflower Soda

Rodney in the early version

Rodney, along with Merle, is suspected of stealing the most valuable oak nut in the world, the "Jeweled acorn". When Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde deduce that the suspect who stole the missing acorn has cheek pouches, they decide to locate and question Rodney, as Nick mentions he saw a "twitchy-looking" squirrel with puffed-out cheeks.
Rodney informs them that he is a tree squirrel, and only ground squirrels have cheek pouches. He goes on to say how his puffed-out cheeks are a result of a visit to the dentist, as too much Sunflower Soda has been rotting his teeth.


Later on, Judy and Nick check up on Rodney, who asks them to help find some blueprints that he was working on at the train station. The blueprints are revealed to have been torn up, much to Rodney's dismay.
When Judy and Nick find the missing pieces of the blueprints and return them to Rodney, he states that the blueprints are very important for reasons he is not at liberty to discuss. When asked what the blueprints are for, he yells at them that it is none of their business.
