Doodle 31 – Monkey or an Ape?

Doodle 31 - Monkey or an Ape?

Doodle 31 - Monkey or an Ape?

This is another Veggie Tales reference, this one to a “Silly Songs with Larry” skit called monkey.  Allow me to explain after the jump.

Here’s the video on youtube…

Here’s the script…

LARRY::
If it doesn’t have a tail it’s not a monkey.
Even if it has a monkey kind of shape.
If it doesn’t have a tail it’s not a monkey,
if it doesn’t have a tail it’s not a monkey, it’s an ape.

If it doesn’t have a tail it’s not a monkey.

BOB::
Let’s see if we can catch it on the tape.

LARRY::
You can very plainly see if it’s a monkey.
If it doesn’t have a tail it’s not a monkey, it’s an ape.

BOB::
Look there it goes, there it goes.
I don’t know.
I can’t tell if it’s a monkey or an ape.

LARRY::
It’s very simple Bob.

If it doesn’t have a tail it’s not a monkey,
if it doesn’t have a tail it’s not a monkey, it’s an ape.

BOB::
Uh, Larry I’m not so sure?

LARRY::
Ugga-Bugga
Isn’t that a monkey?

BOB::
Ugga-Wugga
Maybe it’s an ape?

LARRY::
If it’s a nickel or a salad or a pillow,
if it doesn’t have a tail it’s not a monkey it’s an ape.

BOB::
If it doesn’t have a tail?

LARRY::
Not a monkey!

BOB::
Are you sure that’s what you really mean to say?
A camera has no tail.

LARRY::
It’s not a monkey.
If it doesn’t have a tail it’s not a monkey it’s an ape.

BOB::
Huh… I think there’s something wrong with your logic Larry.

LARRY::
Well Bob, the lady at the zoo said it.  And who am I to tell her that she’s wrong?
If there’s a tail, it’s a monkey.
No tail, ape.
It’s easy!

BOB::
But Larry…
A kite has a tail.

LARRY::
Then it’s a monkey.

BOB::
A comet has a tail.

LARRY::
It’s a monkey.

BOB::
A bubble doesn’t…

LARRY::
Then it’s not a monkey.
If it doesn’t have a tail it’s not monkey.

BOB::
It’s an ape?

LARRY::
Exactly! I knew you’d catch on.

BOB::
Larry, we might need to talk about this.
I don’t think the lady at the zoo meant…

LARRY::
Shhh.
Look. There it goes.  In the trees. Follow me.
It’s gotta be a monkey or an ape.

I can’t believe it’s true.
All this time I’ve searched for you.
Snap the picture, take the shot!
We’re among the lucky few.
We finally did it! Photographer.
We’ve discovered, what we’re after.
Let me look.  Is it an ape?

BOB::
Larry, this is a disaster. (looking at a cow)

LARRY::
It’s a monkey.

BOB::
Ahem, Larry, that’s a cow.  Not a…

LARRY::
It’s exhilarating.  Let’s find more.

If it doesn’t have a tail it’s not a monkey.
Even if it has a monkey kind of shape.
If it doesn’t have a tail it’s not a monkey,
if it doesn’t have a tail it’s not a monkey, it’s an ape.
