Animals In Print
The On-Line Newsletter

From 26 December 2003 Issue

December 17, 2003


As Dr. Seuss's "The Cat in the Hat" has taken box offices by storm this holiday season, a Seuss-like spoof on the killing of animals for fur-trimmed clothing and accessories has just hit the web.

The Fund for Animals' three-minute musical Flash movie--titled "There's a Fufanu in My Collar Too!"--tells the story of Penny, a young woman who has just purchased a fur-trimmed coat and handbag, only to have a Lorax-like creature, the Fufanu, emerge from her collar to tell her about the origin of fur. The Fufanu takes Penny on a trip to the gruesome Animangle Fur Ranch, Inc.--operated by the Grinch-like Animangler--where caged animals sing about
the grotesque cruelty used in the making of fur trim. Penny has a change of heart, throwing away her fur-trimmed coat and handbag and singing, "My choice for fashion is compassion...They need it more than we do." You can
watch the Fufanu, and send the movie to others, by visiting:
