We smoked Malboro! For a bunch of cigarettes, the monkeys got a Pygamou imprisoned…(Second episode) – A group of monkeys have kidnapped a member of the Pygamou people, by whom they are usually subjugated. In order to be set free, the Pygamou convinces the monkeys to engage in a race, the winners of which will rule over the others. The Pygamou are satisfied by this suggestion, especially since they believe that the cigarettes they smoke will strengthen their running abilities and help them to win. However, the race doesn’t go well for the monkeys and the Pygamous, whose lungs are clear from smoke, win and continue to rule over the monkeys.
