Pikku Orava (Finnish for "little squirrel") is a Finnish musical phenomenon in the tradition of Alvin and the Chipmunks or Hampton the Hampster, featuring a singer whose voice has been raised in pitch to give the impression that the voice is actually coming from a small rodent.

Pikku Orava's album Uusi Seedee contains a variety of popular songs in various styles and languages (Finnish, Spanish, and English), but mostly rock and heavy metal. Each song track is preceded by a commentary in Finnish by the squirrel, whose catch phrase is "Pure Käpyä!"

In addition, there is a computer-animated music video for the song Taivas Lyö Tulta featuring the squirrel singing and playing a "Flying Vee" electric guitar (same as on the album cover) and a pine cone monster.
