    I have seen this before and almost died laughing,and was thrilled to be the first person to see and comment on it.Thanks-with me trying to start a campaign against the Olympics being held in Beijing,I needed a good laugh today!!!

    When I watched this again,I felt sad because you may notice the animals looked healthy and calm,and the guy had a super clean large apartment.But then again-it was meant as comedy.Almost all “Horders”are mentally ill and either think they are helping them or are real sickos who enjoy cruelty towards anything/body,plus their places are filthy.But they laid it down at the end-“exotic”animals do not make good urban pets and with that many,all should have been spayed/neutered.

    Yeah you have to remember, their all “acting” even the animals have their names at the end of the credits I believe! Actually some people that are “clean” have animals for the wrong reason, I know someone in my family that use to buy dogs all the time then had to rehome becasue she bought on impulse. Luckily she learned her lesson.

    Your welcome. I love this short it is so corny but funny! My favorite parts:

    Census slams the door on the delivery man with the puppy in the basket:
    Census: Animals are not gifts!
    Martin: Of course they are. Didn’t you see the bow on that thing?”
    Census smacks Fingermen with his clipboard

    Census: You wouldn’t give a baby away as a gift.”
    Martin: Oh no I would not do that..again.”

    That was a great great cideo – and told about overpopulation in a good way – instead of seeing the terrible terrible pictures of starving abused animals, which also needs to be out thee, but this was great THANKS

    Her name is Julie Lofton, I believe. And Bill Odenkirk the guy who wrote it is also a writer on the Simpsons. Yes, Best Friend Forgotten is the best documentary on Pet Overpopulation ever!
