Journey to the West!

One of my all-time favorite stories!  Journey to the West delighted me as a kid and I still rewatch some of the stories today.  My favorite character is Sun Wukong (Monkey) because of his crafty wit and strength...although he was a huge prankster who liked solving problems with his fists.  Rewatching the story as an adult I love the character dynamics even more.  Monkey and Pigsy are always bickering and trying to one up and trick each other.  Level-headed Friar Sand is always caught in the middle.  I love the dramatic scenes of Monkey calling out for his monk Shifu.  The poor Dragon Prince spends 99% of his on-screen time as a horse.
