C’mon Mabel put on your britches like a good girl! That is some swell narration! Nothing like a newsreel to capture a moment in time. This moment featured the now nearly forgotten Dodson’s Hollywood Monkey Stars.
It seems that their was a golden age of Monkey entertainment back in the 1930 that was repeat in the 1970/1980s. So 40 or 50 year cycles for monkey-based entertainment, that is rough. The good news though is that we should be on the cusp of a monkey renaissance. Time for Dodson’s to ride again…
