Run Mouse Run’s SHRIMP, is a little Aussie online comic about a little guy named Shrimp.

With a cast of colourful characters including Uggies the Sheep from New Zealand, Shed the Aussie Terrier, Mr and Mrs Sushi, a family of flies and a mosquito named Mozzie, they all can be summed up as Aussie larrikins!
