Has anyone else out there seen the real MONKEY?

"This product is a cartoon ... of the original shonky, dodgy, low-budget, cheesey but completely awesome television series made in Japan in the 70's.... has anyone got any seen where I might be able to get the originals? They were soooooo bad, bad action, sleazy storeyline, and absolutely terrible dubbing, but sooooo remarkably funny...."

"I haven't actually seen the video, I am responding to another comment's question: The 70's Japanese TV series (not animated) can be found at amazon.co.uk. Unfortunately it is formatted for UK DVD's or Videos so it would need to be reformatted. Does anyone know where copies are available in US format?"
Monkey Magic: A Chinese Classic

"During my visit to China,our travel guide told me stories about Monkey King, one of four pilgrims on a Journey to the West in search of the Buddhist scriptures. "Monkey Magic" is based on the classic Chinese fantasy novel, "Journey to the West" written over four hundred years ago. I wanted to share these stories with my boys, so I purchased all 3 DVD's which start with the birth of Stone Monkey or Kongo and ends with his rescue by the Tang priest and the start of their quest. We enjoyed these wonderfully animated cartoons & my boys were eager to hear more stories and adventures about Monkey King. I only wish that Bandai Entertainment would create more episodes of Monkey Magic since they end the tale where it's really just beginning."
This is worth the money

"If you have seen any of the other Monkey Magic tapes and liked them then you will most likely love this one! With the wonderful cast and a new face joining in the quest this is a great way to do just as it says Begin the Quest. I can't wait until the next Volume!"
