Don't squeeze the gorilla, 6 April 2004
Author: Puck-20 from Bannana Republic

Standard 60's fare from H/B. Obnoxious but good hearted gorilla is always trying to find someone to buy him so he can escape the clutches of Mr. Peebles and his pet shop. I never could figure out why he wanted to leave, though...he was paired with Ricochet Rabbit, a sheriff in the old west who ran so fast he bounced off of stuff, mostly cacti. Ouch. Voices were done by the usual H/B gang, Mel Blanc, Don Messick, etc. Allan Melvin, the voice of Magilla, was also the voice of Drooper from the Bannana Splits. Howard Morris, the voice of Mr. Peebles, also did Atom Ant as well as the Gopher from the Winnie the Pooh series. Jean Vander Pyl (Wilma from the Flintstones) also did some voices...
