I remember it showed weeknights and my father and brother used to LOVE it, so we got stuck with it all the time. As for me, I thought that the whole thing was odd, and Pigsy in particular used to annoy me silly. The only good idea was that Monkey used to travel about on a pink cloud, which seemed excellent unless you were talking long distance travel.
One of the sights that I had to get used to early on was the monkeys, who live wild in the bushland behind my hotel, and all over the island. I even got to pat one once, but only because a local was holding onto him. Just today, I had a near miss on the road as a monkey dashed across in front of my car. Lucky for both of us, he was a fast little critter.
The monkeys generally keep to themselves when the weather is bad, and then emerge when things are a little drier. One afternoon, I came upon a whole group of them, playing and darting about, and they hung around just long enough to let me get some snaps.
