The irresistible theme song says it all: "We've got a gorilla for sale / Magilla Gorilla for sale / Won't you buy him, take him home and try him?" In the pantheon of Hanna-Barbera cartoon stars, banana-loving Magilla ranks somewhere below Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, The Flintstones, and Top Cat but above, say, Peter Potamus. Magilla is the front-window attraction at Mr. Peebles' pet store. Beleaguered Mr. Peebles is Ranger Smith...

The irresistible theme song says it all: "We've got a gorilla for sale / Magilla Gorilla for sale / Won't you buy him, take him home and try him?" In the pantheon of Hanna-Barbera cartoon stars, banana-loving Magilla ranks somewhere below Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, The Flintstones, and Top Cat but above, say, Peter Potamus. Magilla is the front-window attraction at Mr. Peebles' pet store. Beleaguered Mr. Peebles is Ranger Smith to Magilla's Yogi. In the bulk of these cartoons, Peebles (voiced by Howard Morris) happily sells Magilla (Allan Melvin, whose sitcom credits span from Sgt. Bilko to All in the Family), only to have Magilla return to eat up the profits in bananas. In one, Magilla is unwittingly sold to a big-game hunter who wants a gorilla for his collection. In another, a football coach spots Magilla in the window and recruits him for the team. In other cartoons, such as "Motorcycle Mania," Magilla wreaks havoc around the shop. Two comedy teams in the classic Hanna-Barbera tradition are also featured in each episode: Sheriff Ricochet Rabbit and his sidekick, Droop-a-Long (voiced by Mel Blanc), and the feudin' hillbilly cat and mouse, Punkin Puss and Mush Mouse. As has been the unfortunate practice with these Hanna-Barbera collections, the episodes are not presented complete, with the opening and end titles or interstitials, which is all part of the nostalgic fun. One nifty extra, though, is the original Magilla Gorilla promotional film that introduced the character to prospective TV stations. Children of the '60s will go ape for this; and, one hopes, a new generation not yet jaded by contemporary, ADD-enabled cartoons will find it in their hearts to embrace this wholesome, old-school series. How much is that gorilla in the window? Again, the theme song: "Take our advice / At any price / A gorilla like Magilla is mighty nice." Or, as Magilla himself proclaims, "No home should be without one."

    Magilla Gorilla For Sale!! Buy It!!!

    This is another classic cartoon from the Hanna-Barbera 1960's collection of wonderful programs. It is fun for young and old. It is simple, yet good, clean fun in the classic cartoon style. Colorful graphics should keep youngsters interested. The character of Magilla will tug at heart strings-even though he is just a fictional character, as will Ogee, the little girl who asks, How Much is That Gorilla in the Window? in the memorable theme song. The only flaw with the video is that the show's great theme song is only played at the beginning of the DVD and not at the beginning of each episode.
