Over the Hedge is a video game based upon the 2006 film based upon the comic strip of the same name.


Set a year after the events of the movie, the game follows RJ, Hammy, Verne, and their gang as they embark on a series of heists. Their motivation is to gather more supplies for their log. These daring adventures lead them to various locations, including human households and even into Vincent's den. Along the way, players can indulge in several engaging minigames.

Throughout their journey, the group faces the persistent threat of the Sniffer, also known as Dwayne the Verminator. He aims to thwart their plans by employing a brigade of mind-controlled animals, effectively turning them into his personal henchmen. This even includes formidable creatures like weasels, badgers, and Vincent himself.
