Herbie The Gorilla is awesome
23 August 2007 | by (United States florida) – See all my reviews

I have seen this episode and it was excellent. Herbie the Gorilla is a very nice fella (a man is wearing in this costume to make the Gorilla real like Herbie). This episode happens when they want a gorilla to get from the zoo but it was a man wearing a gorilla. So Milburn Drydsdale told a man to wear a gorilla suit and be in a cage because the Hillbillies want a gorilla. So there it was right to the entrance of the Hillbillie house it was a gorilla in a cage trying to come out. What happens that they named the gorilla Herbie. So then Herbie The Gorilla wears a farmers costume. This episode is excellent you will like this episode and so does the seasons. There are more to be continue and the next episode.
