I think it’s actually illegal now to have a movie about baby animals or endangered animals and not have Morgan Freeman do the voice work for it. In fact, I think it’s against the law to even mention an exotic animal in a movie without being Morgan Freeman. If you’re talking about baby monkeys, you damn well better sound like “Red” from The Shawshank Redemption or you’re going to animal jail. Which I guess is just the zoo.
When I was a kid I went to the zoo and saw a monkey giving another monkey a bath in a clawfoot bathtub. “They’re just like us!” I thought. Later, I learned that monkeys rarely have elegant bathtubs. Which is a shame, because I was planning to open a Banana Bath & Beyond. If you could read that anecdote in Morgan Freeman’s voice I’d appreciate it because I don’t want to get into legal trouble.
