Storyline

Sam is a six-year-old orphan with a pet ferret named Booger. Sam is as cute as a button, but he just can't seem to find a family who wants him. When the newest prospective parents come to visit, Sam decides to impress them with a few magic tricks. He becomes "The Great Sambini" with Booger as his assistant. When his most amazing trick flops, Sam is deflated but not defeated, and with Booger's help he conjures up a different kind of magic. Written by Anonymous

Too cute for words!
30 November 2013 | by barkleysgrandmaSee all my reviews

OMG! Could you get any cuter kid then Jacob to be in this film? I don't think so! He and Falcor (the ferret) are wonderful together and truly make this the cutest short film I've seen in ages! OK, I'm partial to ferrets and anything that shows them in a good light but still it's an adorable film and Jacob is just too cute for words! I can't wait for my grandchildren to see this film!

Special thanks to Alison Parker for making this a reality for the ferret community and showing that ferrets truly are smart, loving, wonderful pets and great companions for the right person or family once you've done your research about them.
