  • Description

    Note: Note: Location of the events is unknown, however, it appears to be in the United States of America.

    Full titles read: "MONKEY BUSINESS ! - Meet Alfred, the daredevil - not to mention Lindy Sky Rocket and a few other nuts (monkey)."

    M/S's of a monkey demonstrating her balancing skills on a ball, her baby clings onto her stomach. A woman introduces the monkey (who is called Lindy) in her next stunt which the woman calls the "flying leap for life". L/S's of the women swinging the poor monkey backwards and forwards on trapeze type swing, the monkey eventually leaps high into the air before being caught by the woman.
