I love Monkey. He's an unkillable monk who goes around beating people over the head with a stick until they either convert to Buddhism or die, whichever comes first.
This is thinking which should be used on some of the comments authors.
What happened to the "British" in BBC? This slightly jerky in parts cartoon has no British connections.
No Union Flag, no landmarks, no athletes.
Bet it cost a bomb - more licence payers' cash wasted - please change it so at least we have something British in it.
And the words are not even in English.
Fly the flag not the monkey.
BUT in these hard times the BBC should be cutting waste and this animation is completely unnecessary .
Think about the tax payer before doing this kind of stuff.
It could have been any of the Chinese Zodiac signs: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Hare, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Boar.
After all, astrology, which is a pseudoscience claiming divination by the positions of the planets and sun and moon, doesn't actually work - bit like this cartoon.
Never mind eh? Better luck next time for the London - read British - games - maybe Mickey Mouse?
Why must everything these days be animated cheapo drawing stuff - just look at the Childrens' programmes - packed full of this animated trash.
Just like the endless audience participation junk we see.
Cheap dumbed down television once again.
