synopsis
George is a hedgehog who knows what he likes: drinking beer, skateboarding, and having sex with married women. Unfortunately, his freewheeling lifestyle is interrupted by the master plan of an evil scientist who wants to create a hedgehog superclone to control the world. To reclaim his love life, George must fight back against skinheads, his deranged clone, and the entire population of Poland, which has embraced his idiot doppelgänger as the next big media idol. George The Hedgehog's hilarious, vulgar adventures are definitely not for kids!
