Monday Monkey” Archives

monday monkeyWhether or not you are a fan of Mr. Monkey and his videos, I am sure you will find this page very helpful. Instead of searching through years of posts for the one video you’d love to share, now you will have access to all (OK, most of) the Monday Monkey episodes in one place.

Cool, huh?!

If you don’t remember, or if you are new to this blog, I first started filming these short videos back in 2011 in order to add comic relief and to attract new readers. Believe it or not, when I first started doing this I didn’t even have 100 subscribers.

Some people think these videos are silly and beneath the dignity of a seminary graduate, a pastor, and a virtual “pillar” of the community. Personally, I think laughter is a gift from God, so Christians (such as myself) should be able to have some fun – even with a puppet.

As an added bonus, there are a few extra video included on this page that were not in correct episode order, or were not even posted to The Recovering Legalist.


As newer episodes are created, I will add them below.

This video was the last time I was able to use my 8-track digital recorder to make a sound track. It died not too long after, and that made me very sad. I’ve not really written much music since, either.

  1. Actually using copyrighted songs in videos here (without permission) is illegal. 😉 But only of you do it outside of a video service like Youtube???? Go figure. 😉
    Ps – glad I found the monkey.
    Pss – I should let more of my humor out on my blog. I’ll warn you … It’s a bit snarky. Oh you’ve seen that part of he on FB. 🙂

  2. Proverbs 17:22, “A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones.” I’m with you on humor!! Otherwise, our Lord wouldn’t have inspired this verse!! 😉

  3. Brilliant! And what is life without humor?!? I just bet you’re also fun to have at the pulpit. Do you and Jesus laugh out loud together??
