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

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 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.

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.

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

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

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!!!

Disturbing, but not nearly as disturbing as Napolean Dynamite.

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.

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

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