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?

5 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Awful, pointless drivel concerning a docile lion let loose in a hotel. Fluffy the lion seems downright bored; he never roars, but rather understandably yawns. Dstributed by Universal on a double bill with That Funny Feeling, Fluffy is a waste of time guaranteed to bore the entire family. Both the title character and the film are devoid of personality, interest and charm. With a cast made up of familiar faces from television it feels like a pilot for a failed sitcom. The favorable user reviews are examples of nostalgia not critical judgment. Fluffy is inferior to other mid 60s family films such as Island of the Blue Dolphins (1964),The Incredible Mr. Limpet(1964),That Darn Cat (1965), A Boy Ten Feet Tall (1963) and The Ghost and Mr. Chicken(1965) for they were reasonably entertaining, had some semblance of a plot and were tolerable for adults as well. Fluffy was clearly made cheaply and quickly.
