Yogi and Boo Boo star on TV show

IN the film business they say never work with kids or animals, but when there’s a quarter-of-a-million dollars at stake, why not give it a bash.

For photographic hobbyists Deb Morris and her partner Jamie Bradley, a quirky episode involving their dachshund Yogi and tabby Boo Boo was captured on film and will air tonight on Australia’s Funniest Home Videos.

If their clip makes the top four of the week and gains the most viewer votes, they’ll win $10,000, but it doesn’t stop there.

“If we make it to the final section in a couple of months, we have the chance to win $250,000, a couple of cars or an entertainment system,” Ms Morris said.

The path to stardom for her Yogi and Boo Boo started three months ago.

The usually amicable pair had jumped onto the lounge for a little rough and tumble; Boo clearly had the upper hand and Yogi shot him a look of terror.

“We always have our cameras on the table ready to go and caught the whole battle scene on film,” Ms Morris said.

“Unfortunately for Yogi, all of Australia is going to see him being beaten by a cat.

“At one stage of the video Yogi’s facials expressions are priceless.”

Ms Morris assures us neither was hurt in the rumble although Yogi definitely suffered a bruised ego.

The program snapped up the footage and sent the couple a cheque for $500.

“This couldn’t have come at a better time,” Ms Morris said.

“We’ve both been retrenched this year and even $10,000 would be like winning a million dollars.”

Vote for “Dog pulls funny face at cat” tonight on Australia’s Funniest Home Videos, NBN at 6.30.
