Wah Chang channels George Barrows !

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 !

Happy National Gorilla Suit Day....2017

It's that magical day again folks  !
Time to dig out your gorilla suits  ( and I know you all have them..) and celebrate  !!!!

The legendary Don Martin created NGSD for folks just like us !

The concept is simple, just go do at least one normal thing about your day, preferably in public,  and wear your suit ! 

You will be an instant sensation  !

But absolutely NO DRIVING in a gorilla suit...this is a safe holiday!
So suit up, and have fun !
        ZOOT !!!

Special thanks to the creative mind of Mr. Ted Mckosky for these last 5 great National Gorilla Suit Day images

What a Nyuk Nyuk Knuckle Head !

Why I outta !....Hey there Ape fans, after a too long hiatus old Bongo is back with more Monkey Madness  for one and all !
This time a gem from one of the craziest gorilla duo's ever !
On the left of the photo is the zaniest  Stooge to have ever walked the Earth, none other than the great Curly Howard !
Curly's less-than-enthusiastic dance partner for the Curly Shuffle is none other then Master monster gorilla man, Ray " Crash" Corrigan! They are seen here in the great Three Stooges short, " Three Missing Links.
In the film, Curley disguises himself as a gorilla to scare the boys. But to make things interesting the real thing" Ray Corrigan "shows up and hilarity ensues !
The suit curly is wearing is one of crashes old suits with some of the padding removed. So if you're looking for a good laugh, and we can all use one of those, watch Three Missing Links....tell 'em Bongo sent ya !
