"Born from an egg on a mountain top, the punkiest monkey that ever popped!"
If you went to school during the late ’80s or ’90s, there’s a good chance you raced home each day to watch Monkey – or ‘Monkey Magic’, as you probably called it thanks to its catchy-as-hell theme song.
ABC’s number one after-school program at the time, Monkey is a Japanese drama based on a 16th century Chinese fable titled Journey to the West.
The series follows the show’s protagonist and namesake Monkey along with Tripitaka the monk and two fallen deities Pigsy and Sandy on a pilgrimage that sees them encounter a bunch of demons, monsters and bandits along the way, usually resulting in the epic battle scenes that kept us tuning in every afternoon.
To celebrate the release of the cult classic show on DVD, we’re giving away a box set of the complete Monkey series along with a set of limited edition collector cards, valued at over $180.
