This is the second year of the character of Earl the Squirrel. The wacky rodent last gained fame after getting its own chamber and the release of specialized products. But the big question, who is Earl? News 6 spoke with Universal about the character last year.

“So many years ago there was a power outage in our big tree here in front of Macy’s. And some people say Earl was in there chewing on a rope, and he put out some of the lights. Others will say that he was just trying to climb to the top of the tree to see more Christmas decorations and that he would disconnect a lot. I do not know what happened. But a squirrel caused a power outage in our tree, ”said Rob Cametti, store design and visual merchandising manager.

This holiday season, more squirrel merchandise is back in the Earl the Squirrel Christmas Curiosity & Museum with some tasty treats.

If guests watch and listen, they can even hear electrical noises and lights flickering inside a particular tree.
