JUST what I wanted.

I must take them to the kit-chon, where I shall consume theyme! [Now, if I could only walk straight]

Stephanie F., open the bag, Girl!

Comments

  1. That’s a dizzy *hamster*, right? [wiping eyes]

  2. LOL! That is one determined hammie.

  3. OMG! I thought I was the only one to do the happy dance over cookies!!! Too moishe!

  4. I wanted to see him finally get a cookie! There must be Massive Cookie Effort part 2!

  5. shanchan says:

    I… will…. never… let… go… EHN!

  6. HAHAHAHAHA! OMGosh that is one silly hammie. I bet he got so dizzy he forgot about eating a cookie.

  7. There are two things in the world worth struggling for: freedom, and animal cookies.

  8. useta hada kitteh says:

    I dunno if the hammie’s dizzy, but I sure am! Notice that he reversed directions at one point. When I was a kid, we did that, supposedly to counteract the dizzyness from spinning around in one direction too long. Didn’t seem to work in hammie’s case — sent him right over on his little back! (Boy, those paws were a scramblin’ trying to get back upright).

    I think even the cookies were dizzy by the end of that!

  9. Seth T. says:

    oh my gosh, those kicking legs are just too much for me!

  10. Please give the little guy a cookie! No wonder he couldn’t walk straight LOL

  11. Hahaha! He just keeps going!

  12. Oh the little kicking feet. I’m going to look at this over and over and over and over and over go the other way over and over and….dizzzzzy fell down and can’t get up

  13. SQUEEEEEEEEEE!!! I want heem!

    (And the cookies too.)

  14. I laughed so loud and hard I just about burst my gut looking at this hilarious and very Qte video! I go ga-ga over cookies, too! Too moische! If I were there I’d give him the entire bag of animal cookies, and then some of my other cookies as well. Heck, he is so darn Qte, he can have ALL my cookies! Don’tcha worry, though. I can always go to the store and get more later on.

  15. I’m giggling madly at my computer now…I love when the little guy drags the treasure off to the other room!

  16. Peg of Tilling says:

    I am so glad I didn’t see this at work–I’d have been at my desk, hand clamped to mouth, emitting high-pitched animal noises.

    I’m glad I wasn’t taking the video, either–I’d have been laughing so hard it would have been jumpier than the Homicide: Life on the Street vomitcam.

    No waiting for the payoff on this video: instant ham-larity!

  17. I’m seriously glad my boss isn’t in right now. He would have come to investigate my chortling over little hammie’s FEETS all kickin and squirmin and wigglin…Hehehe

  18. Oooh! that made meh dizzeh!

    God, I love watching his little back legs and pantaloons pumping up and down as he scurries into the kitchen. Hahaha!

  19. Faekitty (Heather M.) says:

    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    *ded!*

    *green confetti*

  20. Faekitty (Heather M.) says:

    Aheem, now that I’m not Ded, that was like a trainwreck! You just CAN’T stop yourself from watching eet!
    Like.. “OmG! Someone is going to fall over! Be it the Hammie? Or the Camera person?! WHO KNOWS!!!”
    eeeeeee..thud….*didn’t breathe enough, ded again*..

  21. THAT is PERFECT

  22. SarahSuiren says:

    That is so adorable! Now I want a hamster ^^
    She looked like she was trying to escape after she did all that spinning lol

  23. Don’t you DARE touch his cookies! He’s just like me. You should see me with my cookies. I’m just as possessive. LOL

    Anyone who DARES touch his bag of animal cookies will face certain death, and it won’t be pretty.

  24. SeaBreeze says:

    Oh My Heck!!! How prosh!!! How qte!!! How … perfectly hammie!!

  25. Hammie tocks! I keep staring at those fuzzy wuzzy hammie tocks! So cuuuuuuuute, widdle tocks!

  26. Aaaa! I know the music from childhood and it’s driving me nuts. Somebody please tell me that it’s either (a)Night on Bald Mountain (b)the Dinosaur movement from Carnival of the animals, or (c) something by Grieg. sorry to be a dork, but’s really bothering me.

    oh and the hammy is DIVINE!

  27. heidilynn says:

    I am at work, and I’m sitting at my desk trying not to giggle out loud (suppressing that much laughter is actually kind of painful).

    He didn’t look like he really *needed* the cookies–his chubby little buns and haunches kept cracking me up.

  28. OMG! hammie on his back, cookie still in his mouth, and all his little footies swinging helplessly in the air. Too much!

  29. First I stared it completely hypnotised – until the poor thing fell on his back. Those teeny tiny feet whipping the air – too much. I shall never recover.

  30. QUEET following me! I must eet zee cookies in peace!

  31. leprechaun says:

    The fact that it’s “Dance Macabre” made me laugh along with the cute.

  32. Anner – It’s definitely not night on bald mountain, and I don’t think it’s Grieg. You might be right about Carnival of the Animals, but I don’t think it’s the fossil movement.

  33. OK, crisis averted. It’s the “Fossils” movement from Carnival of the Animals by Saint-Saens. We should really hear more of this piece on this site…if for no other reason than that there’s a movement called “Wild Asses.”

  34. OMG I’m watching this again and again and squeeing like an idiot.

    Somebody help meeeeee.

  35. Oh, ok, maybe it is the fossil movement – Wikipedia says Saint-Saëns quoted the Danse Macabre in Fossils.

  36. lebrechaun -OMG! You’re right. I’m wrong. Still Saint-Saens, right? I am a totally failed product of consevatory training. But proudly fulfilling the stereotype of non-studious singer.

  37. h3 – aha. that explains why i actually listened to a clip of the Fossil mvt. and was still wrong…

    I like how it’s a waltz and the hammy is going around in circles.He looks like a wind-up toy!

  38. Ohh, this made me laugh so hard!!

    Not lettin’ go, NO NO it’s MY cookies, dammit!! [butt waddles down hallway]

  39. GENIUS!!

  40. when he tips over…are those “hammiloons?”

  41. The music for this was certainly perfect. Too cute. Reminds me of all our family’s past hamsters.

  42. Anner – the song is “Danse Macabre” composed by Camille Saint-Saëns and though while not from “Carnival of Animals,” Saint-Saëns also composed it as well.

    (according to Wikipedia, the Dinosaur movement and Danse Macabre employ similar xylophone motifs, so that may be why is sounds familiar)

    Not sure if you’re a Buffy fan, but you may remember it from one of their episodes (at least, that’s where *I* remembered it from).

    As for the hammy, I think my brain just as’ploded.

  43. OMG the music i think totally makes this most hilarious.

  44. D’oh! I was too late! :(

    Note to self: don’t be so wordy next time.

  45. Yes, we do need a part two where hammie gets his cookie!! Just too cute….

  46. Thanks, Chicklet. There are a number of ominous-sounding programatic symphonic pieces that I always seem to confuse; at least now I know why I’m confusing those two.

    I don’t remember the Buffy episode, but then I watched all 7 seasons last year within the span of a couple months, so it’s probably crammed into my brain somewhere.

    Isn’t it great how small animals don’t seem at all daunted by trying to carry things many times their size? And how hamster and corgi butts look kind of similar?

  47. tears streaming down cheeks, shaking violently at desk, gasping for air………….

  48. doodlebug says:

    Did anyone besides me notice that little hammie made a beeline (kind of) straight to the LIQUOR cabinet?! I think this must be where he started from before he got the cookies!!

  49. All of the music in “Carnival of the Animals” is snippets of longer pieces by different composers simply played at a different tempo. CotA is a wonderful introduction to the orchestra piece, and the best version has Hugh Downs doing the narration. Because there’s nothing like Hugh Downs saying “a tasty kangaroo merangue”.

    (Not to mention the cover art is absolutely wonderful. I made my mother save the cardboard album cover long after the record had given all it could.)

  50. The Honourable Gladys Anstruther says:

    I thought he was a wind up toy at first.Talk about determined, give the poor little bugger a cookie

  51. Great video, but I hope they got the cookies out for him–not just because he really *deserves* a cookie after all that, but also because plastic bags are dangerous to pets. If he ingests bits, it can block his intestinal track, and of course there is also the suffocation risk.

    But the video is truly adorable.

  52. Buffy??!!! Did someone say Buffy???

    Which episode is it in??

    God, I wish I had speakers at work!

  53. Doodlebug – that’s the pet name my parents have for me – Doodlebug! :)

  54. Little Hammie: No! You cannot have my COOKIES! They are MIIINNNNEEEE! *runs away*

    HEE HEE! I hope he got his cookies!

  55. ljlucy – jeez, i never new that. i’m learn-ding! my dad had a recording with Sir Noel Coward. it was on reel-to-reel! when he sold his collection several years ago, that was the one think i asked him put it on cassette first.

    chicklet – no problem. repetition aids the learn-ding.

  56. If there is not already a Motion Picture Academy Award category this video can win, one should be created immediately.

    Seriously.

  57. DKN – It’s from “Hush.” It’s the piece Giles plays when he’s explaining who The Gentlemen are and how they work.

    Anner – Thanks :) (and Hush is from season 4, the college season, in case that triggers something from the depths)

  58. DKN – found it on Wiki-P. it’s “Hush”, episode 10, season 4, during the hilarious scene in the lecture hall when Giles is trying to explain who the “gentlemen” are, but nobody’s able to talk. he uses it to accompany his presentation.

  59. The Buffy episode with this song was the one when they couldnt talk. They are at the school and Giles is talking to them about the monsters on overhead projector. This is when the song is playing.

    :-D

  60. i hope someone else is writing the same thing as me right now and that i will post this comment to discover that it is redundant…

  61. LOL, sorry about that Anner

  62. LOL anner

  63. bwahahahah…. gasp for air…. bwahahahaah…
    omg that is toooooo kewt!!!1!
    I *lufs* heem!

  64. Now that’s my kinda hamster. Cookies and waltzing. Sounds like a romantic evening…

  65. too prosh!!! my Lab does that with my unnerwear..only she doesn’t fall down like that.
    Oh- CO- you make my days in the cube farm bearable!

  66. brilliant!

  67. I was at work, and I did laugh hysterically, and my boss was there, not 10 feet away. And at that moment he was talking to an important partner, ABOUT ME.

    I almost made it without publicly humiliating myself, but when hammie fell over and had to carry away his loot to the other room, that did me in.

  68. I luv that even when he’s all dizzy and flipped over on his back, he STILL won’t let go of the cookies!

    He’s looking for a dark quiet place to stash and then devour them, but the large pink animal keeps following him….

  69. one of the erins says:

    I don’t know which has me laughing harder, the video or the discussion… either way today is looking like a good day ^_^

  70. “I’m seriously glad my boss isn’t in right now. He would have come to investigate my chortling over little hammie’s FEETS all kickin and squirmin and wigglin…Hehehe

    Posted by: kelly | Mar 08, 2007 at 08:25 AM:

    Kelly…Me too!

    I love his feets kickin all over tryin to get up. I can’t help but giggle at my hammie when she does that when I turn her over on her back.

    Is it mean that I want to put cookies in a bag and see if my hammie will do that too?

  71. wiven57 says:

    I know that feeling well. Must. HAVE. A COOKIE!!! Oh, and his chubby little ‘tocks wiggling their way into the kitchen were too much!

  72. Alida, Anner, Chicklet –

    Thanks! Now I don’t have to wonder all day until I get home to listen to it. That is SUCH a brilliant episode. I think if I have my Buffy facts straight, that was the only one that was ever nominated for an Emmy.

  73. I CANNOT STOP WATCHING IT! ayeeeeahah heyehahahah yeeeeeeeeeeee

  74. DKN & all the Buffies — that was a creepy one… but my all-time fave is:

    “They GOT…
    “The MUSTARD…
    “…OUUUUUUT!”

  75. “I was having a bad bad day…sir please won’t put that pad away…I’m asking you please NOOOO! It isn’t right it isn’t fair…there was no parking anywhere, hey I’m not wearing underwear…why can’t you let it gooooo???”

  76. Theo please tell me you know about the Buff-along??

    We have here in NYC:

    http://uncoolkids.com/buffy

  77. That has really lifted my mood! Just wanted to thank you guys for submitting and posting it- I really needed it after a day like this!

  78. i think “hush” was my favorite episode. it was like a short film. but the musical was pretty incredible. i loved Tara singing to Willow in her LARPER dress. and of course…

    “Bunnies, bunnies, it must be BUNEE-EE-EES!”

  79. hmm. i guess that’s “LARPer”.

  80. Anner –

    “…or maybe midgets”.

    I met Emma Caufield (Anya) at some horror convention (I only went to see her). She is teeninecy! – even in high heeled boots. I could of folded her up and put her in my pocket.

    And yes Tara rocks in that episode!

  81. Weeeeeeeell, that first part kicked in my vertigo, but then i was saved by the shakin hamster bootie!!!

    That is one driven hammie!

  82. Lady Ann says:

    I’m getting dizzy!

  83. DKN wow! lucky you. my husband would love to meet Emma Caulfield, as she is one of the many “older” women (including me) he has a thing for.

  84. She is a total hottie, that’s for sure. And so funny!

  85. Allison says:

    So funny! The bit where he flips over and his little feets just keep flailing made me sporfle, and then I showed my mum. Yay cookies!

  86. OK… to be perfectly honest, I’m not *quite* the Buffy fan that Jaye & the girls are.
    I’m definitely a Firefly guy, though.

  87. I can totally see my beagle doing that if he were a hamster (and even if he weren’t). Plus, gotta love the Danse Macabre soundtrack.

  88. Anner, yes, those ominous symphonic pieces? Totally interchangeable. I went to see, um, Justin Timberlake at a club in D.C. last summer (seriously, he’s cool now, it’s ok) and the music when they played when he was coming out was the theme from “In the Hall of the Mountain King.” And I was all excited, because I was going through a Grieg phase. Then the next day the Washington Post music guy identified it as Peter and the Wolf. Uh-uh, my friend! Uh-uh!

  89. Yeah, I admit it – I’m a BIG Joss Whedon noid. I adore Fire Fly. Thats about the extent of my fanatical geekiness…well that and this site ;-P

  90. Beautiful Drunk says:

    Wow. I laughed so hard I gave myself a headache and had to pop some xtra strength Advil. At least that is what I hope, because this was seriously funny enough to laugh myself into a brain aneurism.

  91. DejaMew says:

    Browncoats Unite!

  92. Hamster Too Fat To Run says:

    HAHAHAHAHA leave me alone dammit!

    that’s what he’s saying

  93. Suzanne says:

    Those FEET! I can’t get over those leetle feetsies still running when he’s on his back!

  94. DejaMew – RIGHT ON.

  95. Former browncoat (still mad he killed Wash – grrrrrrr!). Not so much a Buffy fan, but I did love Hush. I almost bought the little creepy guy dolls – they were all articulated and came with cool little mad scientist acessories. Not that I’m a doll collector or anything, but I love the creepy.

  97. DKN – My second favourite part of OMWF! My first being Spike, of course:

    But since I’m only dead to you
    I’m sayin’ stay awaaaaaaay
    And let me rest in peace

    Theo, just for you:

    He robbed from the rich
    And he gave to the poor
    Stood up to the man
    And gave him what for
    Our love for him now
    Ain’t hard to explain
    The hero of Canton
    The man they call Jayne

    Our Jayne saw the mudders’ backs breakin’
    He saw the mudders’ lament
    And he saw the magistrate takin’
    Every dollar and leavin’ five cents
    So he said “you can’t do that to my people”
    He said “you can’t crush them under your heel”
    So Jayne strapped on his hat
    And in 5 seconds flat
    Stole everythin’ Boss Higgins had to steal

    He robbed from the rich
    And he gave to the poor
    Stood up to the man
    And gave him what for
    Our love for him now
    Ain’t hard to explain
    The hero of Canton
    The man they call Jayne

    Now here is what separates heroes
    From common folk like you and I
    The man they call Jayne
    He turned ’round his plane
    And let that money hit sky
    He dropped it onto our houses
    He dropped it into our yards
    The man they called Jayne
    He stole away our pain
    And headed out for the stars

    He robbed from the rich
    And he gave to the poor
    Stood up to the man
    And gave him what for
    Our love for him now
    Ain’t hard to explain
    The hero of Canton
    The man they call Jayne.

  98. Angela-Eloise says:

    Hilarious! The music really makes it.

  99. OMG ROFLMAO!! When he flipped over on his back and was kicking his little feets… omg!! ROFL!!! *sniffle* wiping tears of laughter..

  100. Holy bananas! THAT is hilarious. I love that the *human* would probably open the bag for him, but….. HELL no – yer not gettin your hands on my bagocookies, lady….

  101. Chicklet – THAT was my favorite Fire Fly episode.

    Mmmmm….Spike *sigh*

  102. OMG, the music made the whole thing! And I like how he was hugging the cabinets at the end. Kinda stayin in the safety zone eh lil fellah? Can’t tip over if you are already leaning on the wall.

  103. OMG,OMG – other firefly FANS! *hugs*

    I bought the box-set – made my family watch it, yup, I can die now knowing I made the world a better place. ;)

    My Degus who are about 10x the size of these wee hammies do the stop ‘n spin move on the wheel all the time. Often sycronized. It’s pretty cool but I’m not sure I’d ever be able to capture it on camera. These shot kick-BUM! ;)

  104. h3 – how funny! i notice all these pieces also tend to be things that are aimed at children one way or another. i grew up hearing Peter and the Wolf, Night on Bald Mountain, Danse Macabre, Peer Gynt, and Carnival of the Animals, and they’ve all mushed together, sometimes to be joined my the last movement of Berioz’s Symphonie Fantastique (which I didn’t hear until college).

    maybe the combo of studying opera and growing up on MTV has me addicted to lyrics as signposts.

    and yes, timberlake is much cooler now, sans britney and weird curly hairdo.

  105. Chicklet — no… THIS is what it feels like, to go mad.

  106. 1) Love the hamster and his daring daylight heist
    2) Love Buffy and Hush too.
    3) That music is also used as the theme from British TV show Jonathan Creek, about the behind-the-scenes magic expert who solved mysteries.
    4) And also occasionally co-starred Anthony Stewart Head (aka Giles).

    That is all.

  107. HA!
    “Mustn’t Let Go! Enh!!”

  108. acelightning says:

    Theo and others – I’m a Browncoat too! Alas, there weren’t any cute animals anywhere in Firefly/Serenity (the cows don’t count). But just imagine Kaylee with a kitten…

  109. Now that I’ve got the weight balanced right in this bag o’ goodness, I just..have…to… round this corner to get away from nosy human who wants to ruin my smorgasboard! Yikes! It follows me! How about this corner?!

  110. Ace — there was some talk of smuggling *beagles*… smallish droppings, y’know.

  111. eikoleigh says:

    Now that is determination! I love those little flaying feet when she tips over! Like a little windup toy that flips over. So funny.

  112. Stephanie F says:

    Hey everyone, glad you like the hammie video I submitted. Thanks Kate for the message! I found the link to this on Facebook and I couldn’t stop watching it … it made my day too!

  113. SO funny and cute-I LOVE the music and am always deeply impressed by the speed with which these things are identified! That might be bad grammer.

  114. I say. I do declare this is the bestest video evar to be featured in Cute Overload.
    evar.
    and I think that when the wee little one was on his back his feets keep on moving because he hadn’t realized she wasn’t running no mo’

  115. Have you seen/heard the pre-soundtrack version? Camera chick’s about to plotz…
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrpxHwQkXU0

  116. All day I have longed to comment, but work computer was too pokey.

    I cast this as an opera because of the high drama and the repetitive quality of most opera arias. In Italian, of course, with English in supertitles:

    Hammie: I have the cookies! I have the cookies! Mine mine mine! Glorious, glorious cookies!

    Mom: Please let me help you.

    Hammie: I do not need your help. Mine all mine!

    Mom: If only you would let me open the bag…

    Hammie: [flopping and kicking] No no no no no no no! Mine mine mine! Glorious cookies all mine! Oh, where can I run? Where can I flee? I must flee from those who would steal my cookies!

    Mom: I only want to help you. I would never steal your cookies.

    Hammie: Treasonous harlot. I run from your diabolical machinations. Mine mine mine! Oh, where can I hide? I must flee with my cookies! No no no! Hideous trap! There is nowhere to run!!! Aaaaaaaah!

  117. Run away run away! hahahaha

  118. Ow ow ow….it hurts-too much laughing! Oh my!! hahahahaow!

  119. That’s it. I’ve made my decision about what to buy with my annual bonus check. I’m going to get a videocamera. With three ferrets, four cats and a dog, I’ve got to get something that’s CO-worthy. Seeing this cinematic masterpiece cinched it. As others have said, the music was a perfect choice.

  120. yankeebird says:

    Wow, I almost had a heart attack! The title didn’t make sense, but I saw a YouTube with a “Stephanie F” at the bottom, and thought it was the YouTube I sent in since I’m a Stephanie F! I just couldn’t figure out what a two-legged dog had to do with cookies. *sigh* Maybe soon. Maybe not. Mine was more sad than cute, I suppose.

    Anyhow, this is just too prosh. He was determined to get those cookies!

  121. Redzilla,

    I wish I could hear the singers singing your words opera-style in English.

    It would be hilarious! LOL!

    By the way, if hammie were in my house, he’d get CERTIFIED ORGANIC cookies. He’d be a certified organic hammie.

    Yum yum yum yum yum!

  122. He’s TOO funny but from the “waddle” I’d say he probably has had enough cookies.

    Not that I’m one to talk.

  123. LOL:Maybe he was a turtle in a previous life.

    Recurring nightmareish situation. Kinda like when you are running away from a monster in your dreams and you can’t seem to get anywhere.

  124. These cookies are mine, mine, mine, mine – DON’T TOUCH – mine, mine, mine…

  125. He even refused to stop running when overturned as if defending his cookies to the very end.

  126. AAAAAHHHHH!!!!!
    Ohhhhhh, the poor darling little hammie with his (her?) cookies. (*MY!* cookies! *MINE!!* MINEMINEMINEMINEMINE! )

    And OOOOHHHH!!!! the mean terrible – WICKED – plastic bag separating him/her from the cookies. How cruel!! Poor little precious punkin’!!

    But …. the combination of hammie and Saint-Saens almost tossed me off my chair. It’s really fortunate that I stopped this vid at work just a few seconds after it started. Just once in a while, I try to display some semblance of grown-up-ness. … But not really that often, so it prolly wouldn’t have been a BIG problem.

    LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!

  127. oh. motion sickness now. cute motion sickness.

  128. Christy says:

    teeheehee, pirouettes!

  129. aaaaaahaha priceless! does that hammie look extra big though?

  130. LOL!

    I loved the part where the little hamster was on its back and struggling to right itself yet DID NOT LET GO OF THE COOKIE while struggling to roll back over. So cute! So determined! <3

  131. lauowolf says:

    Redz–
    Well the opera is a little easier to follow than the ballet version.

  132. PetMuseum — you know, it’s pretty impressive… all that spinning, and he never did lose his cookies.

  133. elizabells says:

    YAY COOKIES!!!

    And I love how the human was clearly gauging the exact point at which not helping became more evil than funny. Reaching in like “Not… yet… wait for it… now!”

    Have any of the other Buffy fans hear Anthony Stewart Head’s album? It is so, so, so bad. Love the man, love his voice, but the writing, oh my god. “Cheap Wine Lies.” Seriously. Although it’s cute how he has Amber Benson and James Marsters guest on it.

  134. Redzilla mah dear, THAT was easily one of the FUNNIEST things I’ve read in a LONG time. Cudos, I almost peed myself.

    I’m now seeing this total hammy-opra in my head. Just the vision of a hamster with a horned hat and a gold bra is enough to send me into laugh-induced coma. ;)

  135. luckycliff says:

    I’m with you guys… YAY COOKIES!!!

  136. R. Moore says:

    Now I’m going to imagine all hamsters calling women “treasonous harlots.”

    Bwa ha ha.

  137. ezreader says:

    Redzilla, that is wonderful! My Saturday afternoons include the Met broadcast and I eagerly await the premiere of this one – will provide great fodder for the Opera Quiz also. In awe at the qtness and the witty comments as always…

  138. tocks in motion!

  139. MARYBETH says:

    OMG!!!! I HAVE NEVER LAUGHED SO HARD! I HAD TEARS COMING OUT OF MY EYES! WHAT A WAY TO START A FRIDAY! THANKS!!!!

  140. That was F***ing hilarious! Though I felt sorry for the poor hammie too… How come he didn’t rip the bag apart though? Silly boy…

  141. HOWLS!

    oh meg, gimme a minute…

    I could see hammie as a ballerina, especially at the part where he/she spins and spins and spins around and around and around. Now he/she just needs a little ballerina outfit and cute little ballet shoes on those little feetsees, and he/she is good to go.

    elizabells–I haven’t heard that yet, but I also looove his voice. When I saw a video of Anthony Stewart Head as Dr. Frankenfurter (hose, heels, the *works*) I almost died laughing.

    I had to wait until I got home from work too–holy crap!! That is one determined little fella. When he fell over, all I could hear was “ehn! ehn! ehn!”

    Too funny.

  144. Who among us can actually say that we haven’t made similar efforts to secure some cookies? Anyone?

    Dances with hamsters!!!

  151. I just bought 10 box of girl scout cookies I’ll share with you fuzzy guy.

  152. I meant BOXES BOXES.

  153. First timer, was sent here by kind friend; the hamster is incredible, I laughed so hard I had to see it again…and again…and again, just to get used to it enough to stop laughing!!! Thanx MUCHLY for starting my Friday the RIGHT way!

    Hey again everyone!
    Hammie is a girl … her name is Gom Soon and she’s about 6 months old. Owner Ed D. says he will do a follow-up video. Can’t wait!

  155. Christine says:

    xD I laughed out loud at this!

    (And I really want to know what piece is the background music!? It sounds like something that Camille Saint-Saens wrote, almost.)

  156. Christine says:

    OK, in response to my own comment…
    It IS Saint-Saens, looking at these other comments… I knew I recognized the xylophone part. xD

  157. OMG. The whirling and twirling. The little scurrying (upside down) feets. The “I ain’t nevah lettin go of mah cookees” determination. Too, too moiche. *shakes head* And then – is it just me, or was the first cupboard she went to the Pantry??? (or should that be Hamtry…) And now thanks to Redzilla (and others) not only am I imagining the hampster with the little horned hat, leather skirt and metal bra, but I am imagining a whole cast of little hammy opera characters….. I can see them now…..

  158. Late to the party here.

    Redzilla – Your opera! Wonnnderful! Wow. That was really good.

    When I watch the vid I definitely hear Flight of the Bumble Bee by Korsakov. Alternately, I also hear Around the World by Daft Punk.

    Hello Gom Soon fans. I have posted the Directors Cut of the Cookie Movie. It includes cut scenes and a couple photos of Gom Soon! Enjoy =)

  160. That got a laugh. Poor little thing, I hope cookies were had, eventually.

  161. Now I got the cookies,I RUN TO THE KITCHEN AND EAT THEM!!! (or perhaps store them in my pouches).

  162. Okay, I know it’s really late for comments, but I must…
    OMG eee eee eee circle circle circle *plop* FEETFEETFEET!!! run run run hehehehehehehee
    …okay, all better now. :)

  163. OMG that is a funny video.

    I’ll bet the hamster knows the bag is going to be taken away. Gnawing through plastic is bad for hamsters. So are sweet snacks. But that hammy’s still giving it one hell of a try.

  164. The hamster needs to stop running around in circles, or she’ll end up tossing her cookies.

    …tiny print footnote: Three movements of “Carnival of the Animals” use quotes, the rest are originals…

  165. Brak_Silverbone says:

    Yeah, I pretty much do that when I get cookies too.

  166. I died. I *died*. Then I came back to life to watch it again and died again. The best part is where the hamster flips over and all his feet are waving in the air, and he could right himself if he just let go of the cookies–but he never does.

    Did he get the cookies in the end?

  167. ZOMG! i’ve watched thees like 7 times! *wiggles grubby little mouse feet in the air* CUUUUUTE

  168. There’s something about the shot of a hammie’s backside that’s hysterical! This was a true work of art – I laughed so hard my side hurt.

    and, Browncoats – Simon does mention having a hamster named after him. I think it was in the much sung Jayne’s Town episode.

    How’s THAT for tying together supposedly unrelated items?

  169. Andrea DuBois says:

    It’s spasming in ectasy that it has some cookies! So cute :)

  170. luckycliff says:

    HAW HAW HAW still laughing… *snicker*

  171. So. Freaking. Great. XD
