Hedgehog Trying to Befriend Pinecones May Be the Cutest Thing You See Today

Marutaro the Hedgehog Tries to Befriend Pinecones
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!
