SIMON THE MONK Monkeydoodle / Jacques Kopfstein - 1931

It's Change Up Friday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. I have a huge DVD library of Wild 'n' Weird stuff, so, here's a little pre-code cartoon from 1931 featuring Simon The Monk, one of the many barely remembered rubbery dancing characters from that time. Much of the audio has been omitted because of its racial stereotypes, but, bare breasts are left intact. I saw color archive footage on The History Channel that showed young bare breasted women serving guests at one exhibit at the 1939 World's Fair in New York!!

Eegah!! sent over a fun lil' sound clip for our earjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button next to the spider monkey cage, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's a taste of... MONKEYDOODLE!

Simon wants to ride his pet dog in this adventure, so, he has to fill him up with gasoline to get him to move... One dude I knew in the Army said that when he inhaled gas fumes (like Early Cuyler) it felt like his face got stretched 2 feet long!

The band is in full swing and all the jungle jive cats join in, as heard in the sound clip.

Over here, this cute couple's cuttin' up a rug!

Then, out of nowhere, this giant horn crawls into the scene and lets out a big blast.

The wind from the horn blast blows this lady's dress over her head, also causing a tree branch to smack her on the rear! She thinks the guy's to blame and slaps him upside the head! Just wondering, why are they standing in a tree?!

Suddenly, a killer tiger storms into the scene and everyone makes a hasty 23 skidoo!

Simon hops on his trusty hound and they skedaddle down a trail... Weird pants on the dog!

Meanwhile, at this sexy chick's house... The moose head is totally checking her out!

The tiger has caused Simon to go flying through the air and he crashes into her living room!

She likes what she sees and hands Simon a book to give him some ideas on how to proceed!..

Simon's not ready for a relationship and she kicks him out of the house! Oh well, it's on to another adventure. Check in tomorrow to see what Eegah!! and Virus Man have for us!

Cool we enjoy old cartoons...
They often show what people thought of as "funny" in their time....
A great source on the history of humor.... and most of the earlier cartoons would be some-what "offensive" to some these days....
