Illusionist Roy Horn has made his first official public appearance since his near-fatal tiger attack seven months ago (OCT03).

A healthy-looking Horn, along with performing partner SIEGFRIED FISCHBACHER, sat for a taped interview in New York to promote their upcoming animated series FATHER OF THE PRIDE.

The series centres on a family of talking lions who perform in Siegfried and Roy's Las Vegas magic act, which was cancelled following Horn's horrific attack.

Bearing a visible neck scar and sporting shorter-than-usual hair in the promo - which was broadcast on American TV yesterday (18MAY04), Horn says, "Siegfried and I are looking forward to seeing you this fall (04) in Father of the Pride, because laughter is the best medicine, and Father of the Pride is a very funny show."

Arnold Schwarzenegger's journalist wife Maria Shriver will get the full story from Horn when she interviews him this summer (04) in an in-depth look at the incident and recovery.
