cool and confusing

Rhubarb Fri 23-Mar-07 13:07:38

They used to be able to change into different animals didn't they?

Excellent - would be great if they still showed it - actually it would probably be a great big steaming pile of shite but was fun when I was 7!!

Was it a bee or something he used to keep in his sock and blow on??

ds got a book from the library about them, it's a chinese folk tale.

Remember how their mouths moved completely out of sync with the voice overs which were really really naff!

Ha !

"In the worlds before Monkey, primal chaos reigned. Heaven sought order. But the phoenix can fly only when it's feathers are grown. The four worlds formed again and yet again, as endless eons wheeled and passed. Time and the pure essences of Heaven, the moisture of the earth, the powers of the Sun and the Moon, all worked upon a certain rock, old as creation. And it became magically fertile. That first egg was named "Thought". Tathagata Buddha, the Father Buddha, said, "With our thoughts, we make the world". Elemental forces caused the egg to hatch.
From it then came a stone monkey.
The nature of monkey was irrepressible!


I found three Monkey videos in a charity shop and gave them dh for Christmas.

When we watched them they seemed incredibly dated and boring.

DumbledoresGirl Fri 23-Mar-07 15:46:10

Used to love it. It was on a few weeks ago and dh and I tried to interest ds1 and ds2 in it, but it fell flat rather!

Born from an egg on a mountain top
Monkeyest monkey that ever was (?)
Knew every magic trick under the sun
Pleased the gods in every way and harmed no-one
Monkey magic
Monkey magic
Monkey magic
Monkey ma-gic

Tripitaka was very pretty - have I got the right character?

MrsMillionsofcremeggsplease Fri 23-Mar-07 15:47:49

Yes, but was it a boy or a girl, never could work it out

DumbledoresGirl Fri 23-Mar-07 15:47:56

Tripitaka was a man! There was a thread about this very programme not so long ago!

amynnixmum Fri 23-Mar-07 15:48:12

It was great

DumbledoresGirl Fri 23-Mar-07 15:48:56

I mean the character was a man. obviously the actor was a woman.

Rhubarb Fri 23-Mar-07 15:50:02
