Old-Time Monkey Business
15 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Little monkeys are dressed up pretending to be people in this live-action short. That's the appeal here. I guess it's supposed to be "cute" and "funny" and sometimes it is. Seeing a little monkey with a policeman's uniform on and directing traffic, or "Violet" with her curls looking into a small mirror, is so strange I had to laugh. I would guess it has been a number of years since this short of thing was done in films. Most absurd animal humor today is computer- generated.

"Fred," the town's "most eligible bachelor" could fit in today with a two-day growth, a ponytail and baggy clothes.

This is embarrassingly racist with a shoeshine "boy" with black-face and painted lips saying "Yowser!" However, I enjoyed his "scat" talk, which was pretty hip.

It isn't all monkeys. There are geese and poodles and other small animals. This kind of thing - animals who speak English - is still popular today, just done a lot better ("Babe," "Charlotte's Web," etc.)

This short feature was part of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2.
