Synopsis:
A woman from an Animal Farm requests Bobo's help to make a new arrival, a rare albino monkey from Zanzibar, feel welcome. But they find the crate empty! Bobo suspects another Animal Farm down the road stole the monkey, so adopts a weird antlers-and-tail "disguise" to be the rarest monkey ever. The rival zoo owner chases Bobo right to the missing monkey, and gets his gun knocked away. The monkey feels welcome as Bobo says, "You'll like this civilized jungle... once you get used to it!"
