I've got you now.

my little misunderstood friend.

Nibble the powdery cinnamon bliss.

No! Your path ends in death!

(woman screams)

(baby cries)

(baby giggles)

(people gasp)


You have been saved.

No charge.


This is certainly an ironic situation,

with an apex predator there

and me over here,

holding this little guy

at the bottom of the food chain and all.

Hey, Mom!

Look what I found.

Ace Irwin Ventura, get out of that habitat

and away from that man-eating alligator this instant!




- How many times have I told y ou?

- A million.

- Visiting me... a privilege.

- And this is the last time I get to come here if I'm...

...going to behave this way.

- I'm serious, Ace.

- You're alway s serious, Mom.

- And do y ou knowwhy?

- Because y ou're not gonnalose me like y ou lost Dad.

I'm sorry, Mom.

I don't knowwhy I had to save him, I just did.

It's a mouse, Ace.

That's why we have traps here.

You are not - I repeat, not - responsible

for every stray animal

in every corner of this planet.

- I'm not?

- No!

Now give me the mouse.

And the hedgehog.

And the guinea pig.

And the ferret.

And the toad.

Oh! There we go.


- Baby gator.

- What baby gator?

Fine. Here.

Nowy ou're late for school.

Let's go.

- Hey, what's that?

- Ace!

- What's going on over here?

- Honey. Honey, come back here.

- Ace. OK, look...

- Pong Ping?

The Chinese governmentloaned us Pong Ping

and Ting Tang, the world's mostfamous pandas.

There's gonna be an unveiling

nextweek. Now...

I know. I promise.

No try ing to find missing pets

or helping animals or any thing.

- Even if they're about to get run over.

- OK, that's notwhat I mean.

And I will try to be normal.

Thank y ou, A.J.

Nowwill y ou please go to school?


(bell rings)

Yeah. I woke up this morning

and my pet rabbit Mimzy was totally gone.

Rabbit. Mimzy. Lost!

- Of course we're depressed.

- Our skunk's been missing twwo weeks.

We're emotional wrecks about it.

I will be normal.

- My friend can'tfind her chinchilla.

- (boy) This is really weird.

It's an animal-nabbing epidemic!

- (boy) Laura, what abouty ou?

- You think that's bad?

The other day, Greeny, my incredibly rare

emerald-green koi fish, vanished out of the aquarium.


(PA) Yourattention, please.
