St. Louis (KSDK) - It didn't take long for the Rally Squirrel to become one of the hot Halloween costumes this season.

NewsChannel 5's Kay Quinn dropped by Johnnie Brocks Dungeon Monday afternoon, and the squirrel costumes are sold out.

The store is selling a fox costume that looks just like a squirrel, and found animal head-dresses that could be part of a squirrel costume.

They hope to get more squirrels in soon.

"After the last game in St. Louis where it ran across the plate in front of Skip, that morning, I'm usually one of the first ones in the building and the first call of the day was 'do you guys have a rally squirrel costume?' I said you know, we do have a couple of squirrels. And then a couple of minutes later, an employee said somebody's looking for a squirrel and I said okay, this is going to be something hot," said General Manager Nancho Rodriguez.

There are several turtle costumes in stock for anyone interested in dressing as Torty Craig.
