Hollywood Gets Fuzzy!

July 31, 2011

Now, before visions of gorgeous starlets and beautiful hunks of man candy all clad in furry jackets invade your brain, allow me clarify - FERRETS will soon be invading Hollywood! Okay, maybe not a lot of ferrets (California is still a butthead of a state for keeping them illegal) …but at least one ferret is about to make his mark. And here he is…

But Falcor won’t be promoting the latest fuzzy rawhide snackie-doos or extra healthy vittles or even the newest designs in luxury hammocks. Falcor is starring in a movie.

Sure, you’ve seen ferrets on television before. Diet Dew, Verizon, Budweiser… they’ve all banked on da’ fuzzies. Oddly enough, they’re usually pretty evil, sound way too much like handicapped raccoons, and like to steal jobs and pose nude. (At least two lizards out there will never recover…) And don’t forget about that misplaced white ferret in Furry Vengeance. Seriously? White ferrets are too domesticated to survive in the wild, and you would never find them in a forest, of all places. I probably shouldn’t admit that I’ve watched that movie several times now, and every time I find myself yelling at the screen, cause that’s the most ridiculous ferret EVER.

Which is why THIS movie will be revolutionary. For once, ferrets will be portrayed in a realistic (and all the more lovable) manner. Now everyone will be able to see what fantastic companions ferrets really are, and why they are the 3rd MOST POPULAR pet in the United States. The movie of which I speak:

Jake and Jasper: A Ferret's Tale

The story is about a young boy named Jake (played by Smallville‘s Connor Stanhope), who loses his mother and finds an only friend in his sister’s pet ferret, a fuzzybutt named Jasper (played by Falcor!) It’s a family film about relationships, loss, love, and not least of all, what an amazing companion a ferret can be. It is written by Alison Parker & David B. Beleznay, directed by Alison Parker, and will include music from The Crash Test Dummies.

So, why have I interrupted my personal fuzzy introductions for this? Because my friends need help. They’ve been raising funds for the past month to add animals to the film. Not a cheap endeavor, by any means, but they’ve almost done it.  Almost.

It’s not like they need thousands. Many people already have come forward to contribute, myself included. There are perks available for those that choose to help take part in ferret cinematic history. Signed videos and posters, a spot in the film credits, and for those with deeper pockets, an EXECUTIVE PRODUCER credit! Look at you, making movie magic happen!

Look, my ferrets wanna see this movie be the best it can. Yes, imagine me sitting around with them, having an intelligent conversation about movies and stereotypes and breaking the bad ferret mold. (Then imagine me donning a snug white coat and a soft cushy apartment… hee hee!) Isn’t it about time the public at large have an opportunity to see ferrets as they really are? Enough bad press for innocent fuzzies! Be a part of history sort of!

    Awesome blog site! I wish I could get mine as nice. I’m just not that good.

    I’m so happy Jake and Jasper will be released. It would be nice if Hollywood picked up the short.

      Thank you! Of course, without all the cute pictures of my ferrets, I don’t think it would be nearly as appealing. :-)

      I’m excited about the movie, too. It’s about time someone portrayed them realistically!
