Here are some Gorilla routine ideas from our customers!
The most used bit I do , is when walking around with him some one yells look at the monkey, Chimpy then points at me and nods his head, yes. I tell him they are not calling me a monkey but are talking about him, he then points at himself, and shakes his head no, and then points at me again nods his head yes. Always get a good laugh and draws people over for a closer look. I have control rods on both hands he will play peek a boo with smaller kids throw kisses, wave at every one he sees, etc.

also located in the "Show Me" state!
Bongo will wear glasses and a lab coat, messing up object lessons as I teach.

I would do the ABBOTT & COSTELLO Who's on first Routine
Man was not the son of a monkey
He was made by Gods own hand
and he never lived up in a coconut tree
he was formed up on the land.
I don't believe in evolution
'cause the Bible tells us true
that if you monkey around with sin
It'll make a monkey out of YOU.
He’s a grease monkey always fixing things but they don’t turn out just right.
(We've been planning a promotional based on this idea for a few months! Ax)
He will sing the Song "Who's the King of the Jungle" and Don't Monkey Around with the Devil"
I would do something with reading is fun and you have fun monkeying around with books
Bongo could be the emcee for the VBS Safari program. Introducing memory verses and getting the kids involved in the worship service.

My idea would be that he would be heplful teaching kids that he should stop monkey around in class and do his homework. He brought home his report card. We would have a math routine were he keep loosing his bannas
This little guy has a heart of gold and his only wish is to be a very funny comedian, but his jokes are not funny. He always misses the punch line, often times mixing up the punch lines of many jokes with others. Why did the chicken cross the road? Because he slipped on a banana peel! He thinks he is so super funny, but the kids will know that he is not and that he is making a fool of himself. Finally the kids teach him a real funny joke and he is on his way to being a true comedic gorilla. It is a real good way of introducing concepts of setting goals and achieving them. Never give up on your dreams. Anything's possible. He could wear a Orange Safari Hat and a crooked tie like Rodney Dangerfield. He gets no respect!
Bongo could be the star character and emcee for an all animal puppet play about conservation and responsibility of humans to care for the earth.
I would use bongo to join my 'jungle group' and have him as the rebel that disagrees with everything and wants to be off on his own. Teaching love and patience towards each other.
Will use as a character that talks about Creation vs. Evolution. He will declare no relation to humanity and joke about smoking, drinking etc, and tell how apes are too smart to harm themselves that way.
I would have him in a pet store window in looking out at the people going by tkinking why don't someone buy meand take me home.Till one day after Christmas just when all the hope wes gong, a little girl came and got him ,and love him becouse he did have a BIG BLUE Face and she love him .

Idea: Bongo, the wacky cousin of "Magilla Gorilla" trying desperately to break into the hiphop/rap industry...ie: They call me Bongo, I sing a songo....
Bongo could be used in a jungle setting trying to accept the concept of Christ as King of the jungle.
Name: Marcus Magnus
Idea: I would use him to open the new primate-house at our zoo in Dortmund /Germany and tell the child how important is to save the life of animals especially the primates.
Bongo would be the mascot for the Pitt State Gorillas women's basketball team. On the side he would perform in Christian based puppet plays.
Steve, I'd use Bongo to show that being different is okay. He looks different than other gorillas but the kids can explain to him how different is good, too.
I would have a story about a banana split. Bongo say what do you mean my banana SPLIT. Its like who's on first routine.
