Old Bongo here, working my way into a huge job of catch-up for being absent so long!
To make it up to you, here are a trio of favorites from the Bongo Archive featuring The Legend himself.
Bob "Tracy Kogar" Burns !
Big gorilla brother bob shares a huge space in the hearts of Gorilla Man and myself for all the years of research and stills collecting he's done. So Without further ado, I give you Bob Burns !

The 1960's were a magical time in the world of creative advertising.
This is a time when such "adult" things as cigarettes and beer were staples in commercial campaigns
The beer commercials were especially clever, using elements evocative of classic themes as Spy movies, adventure film, and a never ending variety of beautiful women.
One such genius advertising campaigns was for Falstaff Beer.
This series that ran in the early and mid 60's, feature legendary Gorilla Man, George Barrows as a cuddly beer swilling simian , who for all appearances is the boyfriend of a cute brunette, in a variety of themes and settings.
So for your viewing pleasure, I give you ...Falstaff Beer ! Gorilla approved...Gorilla guzzled !

Hiya Gorilla gang, old Bongo has a very rare treat in store for you this time !
Wah Ming Chang was one of the premier monster makers of the 50s and 60s.
Wah was responsible for most of the terrifying monsters from shows like the Outer Limits and Star Trek.
It seemed only natural for him to build s gorilla suit, and he did....and what a suit !
The funny thing is, that rather than look to real gorillas for inspiration, he looked no farther than the guy who was getting most of the good gorilla gigs at the time, the legendary George Barrows !
Wah's interpretation of Barrows suit is a sight to behold !
And now's you chance to do just that with these nifty pics of Wah's suit....2 with Wah in the suit, and one with Wah playing big game hunter and posing with his " trophy "! Enjoy gang !
