creepy-dead-looking-black-eyeholes-of-doom.

Hyphenated words FTW. But seriously. Those masks are frigging creepy.

Those masks are friggin' brilliant handcrafted outsider art.

So when they all ended up in traction, he ate their lunch in an act of revenge. :P

Fuck that. What really happened at the very beginning of the film is Orville sped on ahead to the park to eat their lunches when the monkeys weren't looking, this caused all of the monkeys to worry regarding the whereabouts of both Orville and their lunches. As a result, their minds being so distracted with worriment, each monkey didn't pay enough attention to the road and got picked off one by one.

You know you're distracted when you let a steamroller crush you.

I think you might be onto something there, perhaps all the little monkey kids aren't the horrible bastards we think they are for leaving their dead comrads lying in the street. Rather than being indifferent to all the bloody corpses they were too concerned about that asshole orville running off with their lunches to notice.....


besides that, shouldn't we maybe give some of the blame for running over the monkey kids to the people driving the cars? especially the steam roller, how hard can it be to stop something going a whopping 400 feet per hour?

I'm not watching that thing. I'll probably have nightmares if I do.

BigMac500 Feb 1st, 2008 10:30 PM

I think those masks are to scare the children into such shock that they will not wish to leave the house. No bicycle riding means no being crushed by steam rollers, which means improved safety! Huzzah!

That music sounded like it was from a Ren & Stimpy episode.

The film's narrator is Edward Everett Horton, an old-time actor probably best known nowadays as the narrator of the "Fractured Fairy Tales" on The Bullwinkle Show.

The son of the director of this film had some things to say about this:

Ren & Stimpy mostly used old production music, so some of the cues might actually have been used in this film.

like anyone would care if a bunch of monkeys ended up in the hospital

Jaimas Feb 2nd, 2008 01:34 PM

I've seen horror movies less frightening then the contents of this movie.

incognit000 Feb 2nd, 2008 02:30 PM

So let me get this straight...

Your reward for biking safely is to get fat eating monkey food?

And there's a thin green line that goes through everything.

Spruce Moose Feb 2nd, 2008 02:44 PM

Why must the narrator keep saying "Right?...right." after every death? It's unsettling!

Count Mek Feb 2nd, 2008 05:48 PM

When I saw the picture that showed the apes I had to scroll back up the page and calm myself down before I could continue, also, they need to put a Death Count on the top left corner, ever death it goes up by one! Mwahahahahaa.
Ace find -RoGelz-!

Flashman Feb 2nd, 2008 08:59 PM

beggars the question why fat monkey kid didnt jump off if he could plainly see he was about to ride into the hole

Count Mek Feb 2nd, 2008 09:37 PM

I was thinking the EXACT same thing Mr. Flashman! I mean, 20 SECONDS is a loooong time to react to something like imminent death.

TheDoomThing Feb 3rd, 2008 11:58 AM

Hmmm, Maybe Orville had a grudge on them, so he BRAINWASHED them to be hits by cars,steamroller etc.

That works too. As long as someone is fucking someone over I'm happy :lol

HAHAHA @ 10:59 When Filbert gets crushed. You can even hear the blood squish out of his body! HAHAHAAHAH! Oh man. This shit is priceless! Even his eye balls bulges out.

Ahhhh ...love it. Thanks for sharing this gem. :)

neoboman Feb 5th, 2008 01:56 AM

Not the gripping, tour de force that was Bus Nut, but a worthy effort nonetheless.

Simple:

"Slim" Jim Beam over there had the nickname slim for a reason. He was the previous year's take on that video's franchise. Then he ated all the lunches for himself, got fat, back on the mayo, then wrecked his car so he was bummin' rides one day down in the valley when his old buddy Fshlorgel Fshlooplalopnik offers him a ride. Then him and OJ simpson walked in, slit the lizard's throat, and jesus I am out of madness.

On a related note, I think the purpose of the masks were to show the kiddies of that day and age horribly disfigured people without *really* freakin out the snowflakes. Those are crudely misshapen, they remind me of the masks the kids wear in Pink Floyd "The Wall" Just frighteningly distiurbing.

AND FUNNY AS HELL!!!

beatpole Feb 5th, 2008 08:17 PM

Disturbing, but not nearly as disturbing as Napolean Dynamite.

xscoot Feb 6th, 2008 06:48 PM

Part of the blame actually goes towards the company that made the bike that was ridden by two kids. Who the hell puts the part where the second rider stands in front of the driver? It should always be behind the driver! It's like they were brainstorming ways to get kids into accidents so they can be paid to make this film.

Obscurus Lupa Feb 7th, 2008 02:19 AM

True story: There were no bicycle accidents in the entire 60's decade BECAUSE ALL THE KIDS WERE SCARED SHITLESS.

artimus Feb 7th, 2008 07:14 PM

I preferred Bus Nut, but that was hilarious. Good job, again, Rog! ^^
and that was...scary O___O

Grossenschwamm Feb 11th, 2008 11:56 PM

Honestly, I took the whole monkey comment as a racial connotation.
