Episode 1: Jurassic Wiener, Behind the Scenes

Welcome to the first behind-the-scenes and bonus content blog posts which will follow each episode of the new season of The Crusoe Show on Facebook Watch. We’re stepping things up a notch with my latest season, making it bigger and better than ever – and part of what we’re doing is re-starting the blog with extra episode content! So, welcome back, and to kick things off let’s take a look at the making of episode 1, Jurassic Wiener!

But first, if you didn’t already watch the episode itself, Jurassic Wiener (Episode 1):

This episode is already my most popular episode ever! And probably because of my remarkable acting skills. In fact, my acting was so good you probably did not even realize that I played every single Wienersaur seen in that episode. Hence the reason I have a Hollywood Walk of Fame star…

In fact, let me just list out all the roles I played for you…

– Velociwiener
– Triwienertops #1-4
– Stegawienersaurus #1-4
– Tiwienersaurus Rex
– Background shrub from scene 5, timestamp 1m:36s (minor role but I’ll include it anyway)

That’s 11 roles I played. Probably a Hollywood record for a single production. But I have to give credit where credit is due. My supporting cast were pretty decent, too. Here I am enjoying some belly rubs from [in Jurassic Park narrations style] “the two girls who were on holiday without their parents“…

Now, let’s learn a bit more about the actual species of wienersaurs, starting with the herbivores.

The triwienertops is short and stout, weighing on average about 11 pounds. It’s three horns are sharp and can inflict major damage to ankles if it charges.

It eats only grass.

The stegawienersaurus is a pretty much the same size. Heck, all wienersaurs are about the same size.

Except the stegawienersaurus eats sticks.

The tiwienersaurus rex is a carnivore, and generally prefers to attack quietly from below, going for the ankles first, which is why they are hard to see coming. However, you can generally hear or feel them coming since despite their size, they weigh about 15 tons, thus making their footsteps ground-shakingly loud.

Here’s a shot of Tiweenie Rex (for short) who just caught a pathetically helpless victim, and is getting those ankles nice and slobbered up.

Finally, the velociwiener, which is probably the fan favorite, is cunning, intelligent, and with a hunger like that of a wiener dog – which makes it a fearsome predator.

So don’t be fooled by its rather cute, cuddly appearance. That’s how it tricks you.

Testament to its quickness,, it still managed to break out of its pen despite top-of-the-line security and perimeter control.

Pretty cool cage, huh? Again, we’re stepping things up a notch, meaning more props, costumes, sets = awesomeness! 😀

And here’s something you didn’t know – if you like wienersaurs (which, who doesn’t?!), well then guess what? There’s a chapter in my new book (coming out soon, get details here) which features me as a dinosaur paleontologist! I’ll leave it at that for now 😉

Hope you’re ready for Episode 2 coming Sunday at 10:30am on Facebook Watch. Here’s a quick hint as to what it might be about!
