A Complete Professional Kid Show Routine … in your hands! ALL Mechanical!! NO Batteries required!
From the Original Wolf’s Magic Advertisement:
Mechanically inspired by the Classic “Run Bonzo Run” created by the late great Jack Hughes. We have taken this effect and created a a prop that is Visually and Mechanically SUPERIOR to any “Run rabbit Run” type effect in magic history!
The classic plot has been changed (a Special Thanks to Marcus Eayres for the Plot Concept! 🙂 and now Stars our very own “Wacky Wolf” as the mischievous “Egg Bandit” who raids the Chicken Coop trying to steal eggs to pay his back rent!
How else do you think a Wolf pays his rent?
With the help from the kids, the Wacky Wolf can never seem to catch a break as he is caught by the kids running back and forth, popping up and down and peaking out from the side of the Coop!
All along the magician never seems to see the Wolf and his antics. Eventually, ALL 4 DOORS are opened as the magician tries to find the Wolf only to find he has VANISHED! After the kids have settled down from Laughter and Screaming, the Wolf is finally found hiding in the Magicians pocket (or anyplace you like).
We have upgraded the mechanics and structure to last for YEARS of performance. The unit itself has been created using In-House CNC Technology giving you precision machined parts. All artwork has been Hand Drawn by Chance Wolf himself, imported to the computer, Color separated and finally converted to Silk Screen art. Then Chance Hand Silk Screens every unit himself ending up with a total of 27 Separate Color Application per UNIT!!
Unfortunately, the photos cannot convey the vivid colors and beauty of this prop.
Alumi-Core Structure: CNC Machined from and Aluminum Surface/Nylon Core material topped with an Enamel Baked Finish. Assuring a long lasting, corrosion free prop. The most expensive material available for manufacturing. Literally 10 TIMES the cost of cheap Masonite which most props have traditionally been made from. Our In-House CNC capabilities give you unbelievable accuracy with each and every part allowing us to produce items we could never have done with our traditional methods.
Custom Pivot Arm Assembly: The Pivot Arm Mechanism, which is what makes the Wolf travel back and forth, was custom designed by Chance Wolf giving you the SMOOTHEST operation you have ever seen. We use a Nylon Sleeve Bushing mounted to the back of the Wolf which travels along a 3/16″ diameter Stainless Steel Rod. The Pivot Arm itself has been CNC Machined from 1/8″ thick Aluminum featuring a Nut & Bolt assembled Nylon Sleeved Thumb Trigger. Solid as a Rock and ready to roll!
7″ Tall Wacky Wolf Cut Outs: We made the Wacky Wolf taller than any other version. He stands at 7″ Tall, 1/8″ Thick and is easily visible with his 5 COLOR Silk Screened applications!!
POP-UP Wolf!: We added a NEW FEATURE not seen in typical “Run Rabbit Run” effects. The “Pop-Up Wolf”. You can POP the Wolf up above the roof of his house at any time which adds another “Look No See” dynamic to this effect!!
Peaking Wolf Soft Grip Trigger: The Peaking Wolf” feature has been upgraded with Ultra Smooth Mechanics and a Rubber Cap covering the Thumb Lever. This gives you a more comfortable grip and control as well as reliable operation.
3-D Chicken Graphics: We have added Flat Cut-Out Chickens in the Coop and used a “Suspended Mounting” which gives a more 3-D look to the interior of the Coop.
Flip Out Footies: The pivoting feet are typical however we added a Lock Nut & Bolt assembly assuring a tighter longer lasting fit so you will not have to worry about screws falling out. Rare
Earth Magnetic Door Latches: We have embedded Rare Earth Magnets into the panes, both front and back, which gives a maintenance free door latching method.
27 Hand Silk Screened Color Applications: Each unit has been Silk Screened by Chance Wolf using the Highest Quality, Hand Mixed Colors of Hi-Gloss Enamel. Screen Printed onto the Enamel baked Aluminum Finish giving you the cleanest most VIVID Colors you have ever seen on a magic Prop!
Complete Operating and Routine Instructions included.
Size: 23″ Wide x 12″ Tall x 1 1/2″ Thick
Believe us when we tell you that this is the most beautiful prop you’ve ever laid eyes on!
Exceptional quality throughout, it’s a must-have item for any working performer.
Proudly MADE in the USA!!
1. The effect does perpetuate the unfortunate stereotype that Wolves are carnivores and can become “wacky” in their hunt for food. While this is a stereotype based on truth it does tend to minimize the angst experienced by some wolves which left untreated can lead to mental conditions crudely described as “being wacky.” We are not saying all wolves are “wacky” or are “wacked-out” and we are quite certain that a wolf would rather eat three square meals each day as opposed to stealing chickens from a farm.
