"Born from an egg on a mountain top, the funkiest Monkey that ever rocked."
ANY show that started with such groovy lyrics deserved to be watched.
This essentially featured 4 people/beasts. A monkey, a pig, a fish and a Buddha. It was the story of how the 3 animal-people escorted the Budda to wherever they were going.
It was really badly dubbed, and yet really watchable. Originally it was all in Japanese, but in order that us English speakers could enjoy it's story, it was translated and (badly) dubbed for us.
