  • Baboon impersonates Weasel to steal his role in a high-budget blockbuster with a lovely actress!

    In this episode, both Weasel and Baboon are actors. While Weasel is already one of the most successful actors in Hollywood, Baboon is a starving artist, willing to do almost anything to get a role.

    The plot begins when their manager learns that Weasel is needed for a role in a great movie, directed by a legendary director, and also starring one of the hottest actresses today! Not bad, huh? Weasel accepts, and Baboon's jealousy kicks in once again. While Weasel takes a shower to wash off the fleas he got during his filming of a movie in Africa and has left his fur at the cleaners, Baboon steals his fur and wears it himself. Not only that, but nobody can tell the difference!

    Thus, Baboon gets to meet his idol, the lovely star Weasel was about to act with, and Weasel is left naked, wandering around the studios. Weasel finds a reindeer fur and puts it on, so that he won't be naked anymore, but is thrown out by one of the studio guards. He lands on the set of a Canadian movie, where other female deers fall in love with him!

    Meanwhile, Baboon gets exactly what he always wanted: stardom. His lovely co-star from the movie has fallen in love with him, the director applauds his performance, and he is finally, in Weasel's shoes. (as well as his fur)

    But, all good things must come to an end, unfortunately. on the way back home from the studios, Baboon is hit by a car and the Weasel fur he was wearing flies off him. He is left dazed and confused in the middle of the street, not remembering anything from what happened. Not even the director or the other actors don't recognize him anymore.

    And, where is Weasel? He's celebrating with the female deers, of course. So once again, Weasel is the successful one. Even if this time you will feel bad about Baboon. This, even if for only a little while, is one of those rare instances when Baboon is actually successful.

    Over all, a great episode, and one of the best stories the first season has to offer.
