In case you ever felt like your life would be more complete with a hedgehog-starring riff on Are You My Mother?, we’ve got a Vine you need to see.
Meet Marutaro the Hedgehog as he quests for hedge-buddies among a room full of pinecones. To be fair, we don’t know for certain if Marutaro is racing up to each pinecone in order to determine whether it might be his long-lost relative. It’s just cuter to think it so.
There’s a sequel, by the way.
No, wait, it’s a full-fledged trilogy, with a new co-star: a bristly brush!
Marutaro hails from Japan, and while he’s a popular Vine celebrity, he’s just one of the many hedgehogs on the site. Do check out the #HedgehogsofVine hashtag if you need further evidence that spiky and cute need not be mutually exclusive qualities.
Say goodbye, Marutaro!
