The Spirit of Monkey was Irrepressible!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Monkey! - Episodes 1-3, Monkey Goes Wild About Heaven / Monkey Turns Nursemaid / The Great Journey Begins [VHS] (VHS Tape)
At last on video, these classic episodes are the first three of the Monkey series, including "Monkey Goes Wild About Heaven", and the story of how he meets up with Sandy, Pigsy and Tripitaka to journey to India.
I have to confess that although I loved Monkey when I was a child, I remember very little of it because I was always too busy chasing my brother around the front room pretending to "be" in the program. Now at a more sober age, the programs are just as good as I remembered, as the arrogant Monkey and his cohorts battle against themselves and numerous assailants to reach India. Although the Kung Fu is a little dissappointing (rather too much stick waving and not much martial arts), the dialogue is brilliant and bizzare, ably filling in for the lack of sofa aerobics.
