My Ferrets: Calvin and Hobbes


To the best of my knowledge, these are the first movies of ferrets made available on the net. The movies were filmed in August 1996 using a vidcam atop an SGI Indy workstation.

Calvin and Hobbes are now in that giant playground in the sky (full of play tunnels, remote control cars with soft tasty wheels, lots of Nerf that's okay to eat, endless supplies of yogurt and raisins, etc.) -- but it's still fun to watch Calvin run around and remember how goofy the two of them were. After all, they're ferrets -- they're supposed to be goofy...and deviously cunning.
