With the most sincere of apologies to Rube Goldberg and his descendants in perpetuity…
Welcome to Nickola and Micheil’s monkey catching machine based on the cartoon machines of Rube Goldberg.
- Monkey escapes from cage
- Runs to minature hot air balloon.
- Escaping balloon knocks the ball off its perch
- Ball rolls along the tightwire.
- Ball falls off the end and knocks the clown car into gear.
- The car smashes into a pile of circus items, scaring the sleeping cat.
- The scared cat leaps into the sleeping caravan
- Pushes the circus worker out the back and into the cistern.
- A duck nesting in the cistern rushes to the pond to escape. The dolphin hears the quacking and thinks it’s showtime so it leaps up to catch the ring suspended over the pool.
- The rope holding the ring breaks and engages the switch that starts the motor that brings the net down over the monkey.
