for all things extreme; and Juarez (voice of PENELOPE CRUZ), a sexy martial arts
pro; plus the literal fly-on-the-wall reconnaissance expert, Mooch, and a
star-nosed mole, Speckles (voice of NICOLAS CAGE), the computer and information

animal kingdom, including pet shop layabout Hurley (voice of JON FAVREAU) and
the rabidly territorial hamster Bucky (voice of STEVE BUSCEMI).
