Universal Orlando Resort is home to many epic attractions that are sure to leave Guests with memories they’ll never forget, but it’s more than just the rides that prove to be world-class experiences for Guests visiting the Universal Parks.

While Universal Orlando is known for its incredible rides, like what can be found in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, there are also many forms of entertainment for Guests to enjoy, as well.

At Universal Studios Florida, there are three entertainment shows in The Monster Horror Makeup Show, The Bourne Stuntactular, and Animal Actors On Location that are absolutely must-dos.

Animal Actors On Location is a show located just outside the KidZone that features many furry friends and a chance for Guests to get a peek behind the curtain as to how animals are trained for movies.

TikTok user @cindyleto shared a video of an incident that certainly is uncharacteristic of the animals in the show.

My daughter’s first time watching the animal show and this happened. 🥺

As you can see in the video, the dogs were at the portion of the show where they run from mark to mark while “Who Let The Dogs Out” plays in the background. However, one pup, unfortunately, bit and latched on to another pup forcing the Universal Trainers to jump into action.

The trainers did an excellent job separating the animals and getting the situation under control, but it did cause the segment to end early before Frank– the beloved pug from Men In Black 2— even had an opportunity to say his lines.

Universal Orlando’s official description of Animal Actors On Location reads:

More Fun Than Humanly Possible.

This wild showcase features some of the most talented animal actors from movies and television performing in a hilarious mix of video segments, live skits and audience interactions. With a menagerie of vibrant birds, mischievous pups, agile cats and more, it’s a hoot for the whole family.

The Universal Team Members did a great job of keeping everyone– including the animal actors safe– and then moved on with the show, ensuring that Guests still had a wonderful experience.
