What about that monkey?


When your boss allows you to spend 10% of your time on your own project, you should jump at it. Which we did. And who jumps better than a monkey? So that is why-well no, that is not why we took a monkey as our lead character. Especially considering Fleur is quite jumpy herself. No, the real reason for Manfred the Monkey was the simple fact that Amanda had drawn a monkey she wanted to animate “old-school”. Fleur thought that sounded professional. So she offered her song-writing skills to give this monkey some rhyme and rhythm. The idea is to draw from old fables, where animals elucidate us, poor human souls, with lessons on life. We need a wise monkey. At the same time, we are post-modern and cynical, and sorry to say dear monkey, so are you.

Is that Manfred cartwheeling?
