Monkey Business... (tbp)

FACT: There is no animal in the whole world that is funnier than the monkey*.

This is why I always try and use them in a cartoon when I can. This is one of the first cartoons I ever drew when I was developing Too Close For Comfort and it still stands strong. It's also my favourite of the monkey cartoons I've drawn because it combines a well known phrase and a little sideways thought and then twists them into a joke. The tag-line is still a little long, but it's been refined and sanded down as much as possible without losing anything. I also like the idea of a perfume being called 'Eau de Banane'. Frankly I'm surprised it hasn't already been invented...

*(Well, maybe a dog in a trilby hat is funnier...I'm still not sure)
