Web Animation / Munky Cheez
A crazy mini-series made by James Rolfe
. Revolves around a cheese that turns people into monkeys
. The second episode also had a family of monkeys that had the kids watch the first episode. The episodes can be found on the Cinemassacre website under Animation.
This series provides examples of:
- Baleful Polymorph: Anyone who eats the cheese turns into a monkey and says "MUNKY CHEEZ!".
- Berserk Button:
- Saying "Munky Cheez" is frowned upon by the dad in episode 2.
- And saying "Monkey Banana" does not get you a pleasant response, as seen in episode 4.
- Bowdlerization: There exist official G-Rated versions of the first two episodes. Bizarrely, the G-Rated version of the second one cuts "MUNKY CHEEZ-US CHRIST" while leaving in the button on the TV reading "porn".
- The Cameo: Skeletor makes a cameo in the first episode where Munky Cheez swipes the device in his hand.
Skeletor: Man, look at that Munky Cheez. Bein' all Munky Cheez and shit.
- Deranged Animation: Everyone in the monkey family has photo-realistic heads of different types of monkeys attached to badly-drawn cartoon bodies.
- Mistaken for Masturbating: King Kong in episode 3.
- No Indoor Voice: The monkey dad.
"WHAT DID I TELL YOU KIDS TO KNOCK IT OFF WITH THAT MUNKY FUCKIN'
CHEEZ?!! HOW ABOUT MUNKY PLEASE SHUT THE FUCK UP!!"
- Stock Footage:
- The first episode uses footage of Skeletor.
- The second episode is basically a bunch of monkey kids reacting to the first Munky Cheez.
- The second episode itself becomes stock footage in the second episode of Shit Pickle, which was made three years after the Munky Cheez episode. The Munky Dad does take part in the Shit Pickle footage by joining the two stupid kids and Shit Pickle outside while shouting "MUNKY CHEEZ!" The stock footage from the second Munky Cheez was taken from a VHS copy, which contrasts with the purely digital Shit Pickle footage.
- The third Munky Cheez episode takes stock footage from several different sources, most notably King Kong.
- Tongue Twister: In episode 3.
"CHEEZ to the CHEEZY MUNKY's CHUNKY CHUNK of CHEEEEZ"
- Widget Series: Just try making any sense out of this series.
