[opening theme song
Born from an egg on a mountaintop / The funkiest monkey that ever rocked / He knew every magic trick under the sun / To tease the gods and everyone, and have some fun / Monkey magic, Monkey magic! Monkey magic, Monkey magic! Monkey magic, Monkey magic! Monkey magic, Monkey magic!
