Twiggy the Skiing Squirrel.

Just wasting time on the Internet, as you do, and I’ve just come across Twiggy. Like Cyril, Twiggy is a skiing squirrel. Unlike Cyril, Twiggy does her skiing on water, but hey, worth a look.

It appears that since 1979 there has actually been a series of trained skiing squirrels called Twiggy. Each Twiggy lives with the Best family in Florida and besides shows and YouTube videos, they have also had a movie career. In 2019/20 there is a plan for a couple of squirrels to tour with Chuck jnr., the son of the original trainers Chuck and Lou Ann Best.

pop trivia: Lyric is from ‘Little Acorns‘ on the 2003 White Stripes Album, ‘Elephants’.
