Oswald and his monkey chums leap from tree to tree, chattering away in the sunshine. Life would be wonderful indeed but for the big, bad ape constantly on their backs.

One day Oswald has had enough. He says 'No!' In a colourful explosion of swaying monkeys and creeping vines accompanied by Pierre Dørge's jazzy soundtrack, the monkeys' tale is narrated by a singing troubadour.
