A doctor is doing experiments on a caged monkey but when it breaks out of his cage there's all hell to pay. Once again, this is a cute little short but it really doesn't show the genius of Melies. There's no real magic to be spoken of but there are a couple laughs from the monkey including one scene where he tries to rip the dress off of a servant. The movie last just over a minute but there's really nothing too special that happens in that time. Once again Meiles takes the lead and plays the doctor.
