This is completely off-topic, but someone on the board may have some clever or comical kids or grandkids under the age of 12 for whom they'd like to get a really different sort of gift for Christmas, Hanukkah or a Birthday.

When I was 9 or 10 years old, my younger brother and I used to roll in the floor laughing while watching "Lancelot Link - Secret Chimp," an all-simian Saturday morning show where an all-chimp cast spoof "The Man From UNCLE" and "Get Smart," two adult spy shows from the same period of the late 1960's - early 1970's.

Here's a YouTube link announcing availability of the "complete 17-episode" collection taken from ABC TV's original masters.

If you wonder whether what was cool and funny to 10-year olds 42 years ago is still considered "hilarious" to today's jaded youngsters, skip to about 4:00 minutes in this "review" from a kid named Clay who was thrilled to get his set of the DVDs from the producers:

Clay just keeps saying "hilarious" over and over. Apparently kids still have a sense of humor and fun.

I have two grand-nephews, age 7 and 9, (and grand-nieces age 8 and 10) who I'm hoping to surprise with at least one gift that they don't already have. I don't know if little girls will find it funny, but I know that boys enjoy jokes like this.

Supposedly, the proceeds from sales of the DVDs are being used to support "The Wildlife Waystation," an animal refuge for "retired" chimps like Lancelot Link himself.



P.S. - Next week - a review of HR PufNStuf and The Banana Splits.
