Bert the Farting Hippo

Loved him the first time I saw him, and love the list of why the fans love him. Especially No. 9 - "That anyone can write a scene that gets Leroy Jethro Gibbs in the same room as a stuffed hippo that farts AND not jump the shark is a tribute to the sterling work of the writers on this show." :D

Bert the hippo is actually a momma hippo from all plush.com. I spoke with them on the phone. The prop department came into them to get the first one. Then they came back and bought four more for an awards ceremony. They had stopped making them, but had to restart again due to people wanting Bert. It was the only one you can get that allows a self-inflating whoopee cushion to be put in the stomach. My husband did love it for Christmas though! 26  out of 28 found this valuable. Do you?

I am guessing that they won't be easily available in Australia. My sister loves that hippo she keeps saying she wants one.

All I can say is try the website and see if they will mail it. Remember it is just a stuffed hippo. You will still need to buy
a self-inflating whoppie cushion and fix it.

If you use the drop down menu under shipping method, they have an option for international shipping! Of course, the shipping costs more than Bert, but I think it's worth it! 3  out of 4 found this valuable. Do you?

I have written an email to the marketing people at San Francisco Zoo, whose giftshop sold the real Bert to the props buyer for NCIS (they tell you this when they send you a script, as it must be a standard question). The real Bert has no sound effect, hence your need for the whoopee cushion. I pointed out to the zoo that there is a fanbase that they might tap into...especially if they are willing to sell by mail order to overseas. Fingers crossed, Gothgirl... I will report if and when I get a reply, but am not holding my breath. Their website makes no mention of being the source of Bert to NCIS...they do not appreciate their role in NCIS fan history! (I write with tongue firmly in cheek, here).
