Feisty Pets at Wonder Con 2018

March 18, 2018 – The social media phenomenon Feisty Pets® comes to WonderCon at the Anaheim Convention Center! Developed by Mark Forti, the creative force behind Feisty Pets and Feisty Films, will make an appearance at Jazwares’ booth #841. Meet Mark for autograph signings, giveaways and photo opportunities alongside two giant Feisty Pets. The details are: Friday, March 23, from 2-4pm.

Hilarious Feisty Pets interactive plush go from friendly to ferociously funny with just a gentle squeeze at the back of their heads. As the ultimate prank toy, fans can’t get enough of Princess Pottymouth™, Glenda Glitterpoop™, Sammy Suckerpunch™, Sir-Growls-a-lot™, Vicky Vicious™ and Grandmaster Funk™. When each character’s hidden “Stuffed Attitude™” suddenly appears, they start with a sweet disposition that in seconds turns into their scary and sarcastic side!

Mark Forti launched Feisty Films in 2016 as a series of iconic skit-style YouTube shorts featuring irreverent adventures of the Feisty Pets Gang in the real world. Soon after, in May 2017, Feisty Pets went viral and gained the attention of entertainment press and top toy search terms on eBay and Amazon, ultimately resulting in white-hot sales in 2017.

 Synopsis: Leonato (Clark Gregg), the governor of Messina, is visited by his friend Don Pedro (Reed Diamond) who is returning from a victorious campaign against his rebellious brother Don John (Sean Maher). Accompanying Don Pedro are two of his officers: Benedick (Alexis Denisof) and Claudio (Fran Kranz). While in Messina, Claudio falls for Leonato’s daughter Hero (Jillian Morgese), while Benedick verbally spars with Beatrice (Amy Acker), the governor’s niece. The budding love between Claudio and Hero prompts Don Pedro to arrange with Leonato for a marriage.

In the days leading up to the ceremony, Don Pedro, with the help of Leonato, Claudio and Hero, attempts to sport with Benedick and Beatrice in an effort to trick the two into falling in love. Meanwhile, the villainous Don John, with the help of his allies: Conrade (Riki Lindhome) and Borachio (Spencer Treat Clark), plots against the happy couple, using his own form of trickery to try to destroy the marriage before it begins.

A series of comic and tragic events continue to keep the two couples from truly finding happiness, but then again perhaps love may prevail.
