Magilla Gorilla | Magilla Gorilla Show

Magilla Gorilla is a character on the Magilla Gorilla Show is an animated series by Hanna-Barbera between 1963 and 1967. Like many of the Hanna-Barbera animal characters, Magilla Gorilla was dressed in human accessories, sporting a small hat and a bow tie. The show also had other recurring characters, including Punkin' Puss & Mushmouse, and Ricochet Rabbit & Droop-a-Long.

Magilla Gorilla was voiced by veteran actor Allan Melvin, Mr. Peebles was voiced by Howard Morris, and Ogee's voice was provided by Jean Vander Pyl.

In Magilla Gorilla, the protagonist spent his time languishing in the front display window of Mr. Peebles' pet shop, eating bananas and being a drain on the businessman's finances. Mr. Peebles marked down Magilla's price considerably, but Magilla was invariably only purchased for a short time, typically by some thieves who needed a gorilla to break into a bank or by an advertising agency looking for a mascot for their new product. The customers always ended up returning Magilla, forcing Mr. Peebles to refund their money. Magilla often ended each episode with his catchphrase, "We'll try again next week."

The only customer who was truly interested in obtaining the trouble-prone ape for good was a little girl named Ogee ("Oh Gee!"), who, unfortunately, could never convince her parents to let her keep Magilla (During the cartoon's theme song, "We've Got a Gorilla for Sale", Ogee would always ask hopefully, "How much is that gorilla in the window?" a twist on the old standard, "(How Much Is) That Doggie in the Window?").
