“George the Hedgehog” (Jez Jerzy) trailer

Here’s what looks like the Polish version of Fritz The Cat: Jez Jerzy (aka George The Hedgehog). It’s based on a comic by RafaÅ‚ Skarżycki and Tomasz LeÅ›niak, and is now an adult feature directed by Wojciech Wawszczyk, Jakub Tarkowski and co-creator Tomasz LeÅ›niak. Animator Leah Shore saw it at SXSW in Austin and couldn’t believe her eyes:

“Its crazy. It used to be a comic book but they turned it into this weird graphic insane feature. Basically its about a hedgehog that drinks a crap load, skate boards, and does a lot of women. Then there’s this neo nazis that work for a scientist that want to kill and clone George to make the ultimate superstar. It bizarre. There’s a lot of bouncing boobies, pustular things and humping of intimate objects.”

Here’s the NSFW trailer:

    Looks fun, I dig the style! Thanks for the heads up Jerry.

    King Crimson says: 21st Century Fritz the Cat!

  • Daniel J. Drazen

    Watching this made me think of Gilbert Sheldon’s underground comic “Wonder Warthog.”

    His face is almost exactly like Fat Freddy’s Cat, but with an outline around the lips.

    I think the audio was off in this video. I almost thought they put some Hong Kong dubbing over this!

    • Conor

      that’s what I though too, but there are a few parts that sync up in a way that leads me to believe that the trailer was just really incompetently constructed.

  • Clint H

    Looks OK. I like the design of the main character, but everything else doesn’t look that impressive. FRITZ THE CAT is a much better film.

  • Karl Hungus

    The style reminds me a lot of “Mister Sprinkles”.

  • Rufus

    That looks awful. I detest people comparing this to Fritz the Cat. Fritz was at least somewhat well animated – this DOESN’T QUALIFY AS ANIMATION.

    ^ those people are nuts. This looks awesome. So what if it’s raw and has a low budget?

  • Toonio

    So how many… scratch that, surely that married woman got into a hairy situation with that hedgehog!

    ugly flash, ugly art.

    I like After Effects/Toon Boom puppetry.

    My first response is positive, but I’d like it even better if it wasn’t in this, like, language. It’s like some demon yelling at me, or something.

    • Was My Face Red

      Yeah, a curse on all those foreigners with their Satan tainted languages. Why can’t they shout at us in American?

  • Bud

    Is this by the same people who made rango? Looks like it. Same “writers,” too.

    • Was My Face Red

      Yep, nobody liked that turkey.

  • E. L. Kelly

    The character movement reminds me of an old test animation of a Scooby-Doo episode I saw that was made using the ancient Scanimate analog computer in the late 70′s (?).

      Where can one see this obscure test? I love that kind of crap

    looks rough and it looks good

    this also takes my total number of ‘Jez’s that I know in animation’ to 3, whilst my list of ‘Jez’s I know outside animation remains at zero

    Looks like the perfect movie for stupid teens who still giggle when they hear the word “Penis”.

    Wow. That. is. SO. UGLY.

  • Pez


    art is cool but looks like a bunch of non animators took an illustrators work and scooted it around on the computer.

  • Derp

    What an ugly language.
    It looks like it’s about a crazy version of Brain Griffon who still hits on human women and not his own species. And throw on a Sonic the Hedgehog styled title.
