According to her, she created the character Squat in 1999 after seeing a squirrel-rat hybrid in Skidmore University’s Case Green and introduced him to executives at 20th Century Fox and Blue sky Studios before the franchise The Ice Age does not enter development. She was offered a deal by Fox studios, which she refused, and the case, relayed in a CNN report, continued in appeal trial.
