Storyline

Fluffy the lion is the main attraction in this comedy. He plays the subject of an ambitious experiment done by Daniel Potter (TONY RANDALL), a scientist trying to prove that even a wild animal like a lion can be made into a pet with proper training. Wherever he goes, Potter's ponderous pet incites mayhem amongst the region's fearful residents. To escape his panicky neighbors, Potter and Fluffy hide out in a hotel. There, the owner's daughter (SHIRLEY JONES) falls for the unlikely duo, while everyone else fall all over themselves in a panic. Our heroes find themselves on the run from the law when Fluffy is accused of eating someone! Can Potter stop the police before they shoot an innocent lion?

Tony Randall and his pet lion named fluffy
25 October 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of my all time favourite movies. I wish it was out on DVD. Years ago it was on TV and I taped it so every now and then I get it out and watch it. It may not be as clear as a DVD would be but I still love to watch it. Tony Randall and Shirley Jones are great in this movie. I would love to see it out on DVD and wouldn't hesitate to buy it regardless of cost. It's a great family movie and comedy. A lot of the movies made today are just plain garbage but not this one. I love the movies of this era as they are just good clean fun without the violence and gore that is so common today. Please, whoever made the movie Fluffy, please release it on DVD ASAP for all us fans out here who would love to own it for ourselves.
