We smoked Malrobo! (The firts episode) – An airplane drops a load of cigarettes on the forest to fight the war on tobacco. Some monkeys find them and start smoking the cigarettes with vigour. In the nearby village of the Pygamou, the pygmy sentinel says she heard the monkey’s tam-tam and believes they intend to attack the village that same night. The sentinel is sent out on patrol but is soon captured by the monkeys who are hot-headed from the smoke. After tying him to a tree, the monkeys tell the sentinel that they have discovered the secret of longevity and the power in cigarettes and that the Pygamou, who until now have behaved as bloody vampires, will all become their slaves.
