Forget Iron Man Jones, The Meerkat Manor Prequel Premieres This Weekend!

Jealousy. Betrayal. Vengeance. Love. Death. Sobbing. Yelling “Oh No She Did Not!” At The Screen. Meerkat Manor, the best soap opera reality show on TV, is premiering a new Whoopi Goldberg-narrated prequel to the series called Meerkat Manor: The Story Begins this Sunday at 8pm on Animal Planet. The prequel tells the story of the show’s biggest heroine so far, Flower Whiskers, and how she rose up to lead the Whiskers clan. The movie promo and a serious spoiler, after the jump.

“Spoiler”: Flower Whiskers died of a snake bite in February, 2007. You might remember the tribute videos, of which there are at least 300 on YouTube. If you’ve ever gotten into Meerkat Manor, though, those tributes are only like 30% weird.
