Via monkeywatch (which should be linked here) comes word of monkey home invasions.

Don't go to India, Frank!

What's next?


Via Yahoo! and the Associated Press: A young monkey at an Israeli zoo has started walking on its hind legs only — aping humans — after a near death experience...
What's next? Baboons racing bicycles in the Tour day Surrender-Monkeyland?

The origins of Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp

On September 12, 1970, the world changed. Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp debuted on ABC. Seriously, my world changed.

Dig it: There were monkeys on TV! Wouldn't your life change, too?

That most excellent chronicle of The Golden Age of TV, TVParty!, has a section devoted to Lancelot Link. Part Two includes the entire "Lancelot Link and The Evolution Revolution" album in Real Audio format.

Another section includes an article on Mike Marmer and Stan Burns, the gentlemen who created Lance, Mata Hari, Professor Darwin, and the rest of the cast of Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp. This is chronicled in a video entitled I Created Lancelot Link.

I encourage all Frank fans to review the info in the linked pages. You never know when it might come in handy.

Why Frank is avoiding Chicago

No, it's not because Sassy Jen is a big fan of all sports teams from said toddlin' town. It's because the chimps at the Lincoln Park Zoo are armed:

At the zoo's new Regenstein Center for African Apes, chimpanzees can touch a panel hidden from public view that will shoot harmless bursts of air at unsuspecting visitors.

OK, so they're only armed with air guns, but still. Why take chances?

Stay away, Frank!
