A Cartoon That I Bet You Probably Forgot About ! ....Megillah Gorilla 1963-1965

 It was a popular cartoon show from the early 1960s, and by not telling your age, you may have seen it in the original broadcast – Magilla Gorilla.

Magilla Gorilla was created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera,Hanna Barbera often used human accessories for their animal characters, a purple bow tie, a red undersized derby hat, and brown dress shoes. 

The cartoon story is built around a gorilla named Magillah that is own by Mr. Peebles Pet Shop, who has owned him since he was a baby. Now all grown up Mr.peebles could never find him an owner, this saddens Magillah and he is always trying to get adopted. Only one customer was interested in owning Magillah. This customer was a little girl named Ogee, but she could never 

convince her parents. The theme song to Magillah was 'We've Got a Gorilla for Sale'. 

The word "megillah" comes from the Hebrew word "Megillat" which means a long narrative or story. The phrase "Such a long story over a gorilla" is a humorous way of saying "Such a long story". 

Megillah Gorilla was a huge success and has appeared many times throughout our history in comics and other cartoon shows.
