LIVE ACTION VERSION - This early 80's television series captured the hearts and minds of a generation of young viewers and ingrained itself into British television folklore. A television programme that defies description but we'll give it a go: a bizarre combination of spectacular acrobatics and martial arts; tacky special effects; magic tricks; 70's disco music; hilarious dubbing; crazy storylines; the odd bit of Buddhist philosophy thrown in for good measure and an unforgettable theme song. Monkey followed the incredible adventures of three fallen angels: Monkey; Pigsy and Sandy. Thrown out of heaven for various acts of sacrilege and general misbehaviour they hook up with a young Buddhist monk, Tripitaka and embark on an epic, adventure-packed pilgrimage to fetch the scriptures of Buddha and to hopefully gain some true enlightenment themselves.
Now for the first time ever the complete Season One box set is now available to buy on DVD in the USA.
