Monkey's Aunt

Remember that song? "I love the monkey's uncle"? Disney? From their old school live-action stuff? I'm not sure which show exactly, but I used to dance around our living room to that song all the time.
It really has nothing to do with this Physics simulation, but it's what I think of every time I see it.
Here's a sampling of the 200-some concept-sketches too.

Oh yeah - and I couldn't kill the monkey. It's implied that he's hit off-screen, but that's not true, I put up a bullet-proof barrier to protect him right off camera. So rest assured, no fictional monkeys were harmed in the making of this quicktime.

"I'd live in a jungle gym - in order to be with hiiiiii-iiiim. I love the monkey's uncle and I wish I were the monkey's aunt!
[monkey's aunt!]"
Yay classic-Disney nostalgia!

Why would you hunt MONKEYS?!

Other than to make a splendid video, of course...

A wise man once told me that you know a blog is good if the posts begin and end with references to vague live-action Disney films. Good job, Laura! (I'm trying to work some "Toby Tyler" into my newest post...)
I am so relieved the monkey is okay. Shame on that mustachioed man!
