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?

Loved this movie then and now.
29 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of my favorite movies of all time I know if is a little corny but who doesn't love a little core every once in a while as a kid things are supposed to be corny as an adult it is fun to remember childhood joys. If you have never seen this movie take the time to watch it especially if you have kids let them watch it with you and then watch them. If they love it as much as I did you are in for a treat. Old movies can be so fun and enjoyable. You also can avoid the as my mother would say the garbage that you find in a lot of the movies today if you are looking for a good whole some movie this is one to watch. I only wish I knew where to find it now.
