Featured Animal Action

There is a scene where Oscar and Felix are stranded in a car and a crow flys down and picks up a toupee from the road and flys off. A little later a shot is heard and the crow supposedly lands on the hood of the car. The bird was trained to fly to its mark (or hairpiece in this case). The actor shoos the bird away and the bird flies back to the trainer. A fake bird was used for the shot of a dead bird on the hood of the car.

Other animal action consists of a few cats poking around some garbage that has been dumped from its cans. The trainer released the cats from their crates. A safety fence was placed around the area and a buzzer was placed under the garbage, which consisted of soda cans, newspaper, etc. Food was placed in a few locations under the trash. While the guys are tooling down the road they pass a field with some cows in the background.
