IMDb - Facebook

True Story as narrated by Tim Tate. 1969 Outside of Washington D.C. Two brothers ordered a monkey for $19.95 out of the back of a Monster magazine. Things get weird. Tim's monkey story has been covered on NPR and has been made into a musical

DPM is a collaboration between Jim McDonough (Friday Night Films) and Launch Over. It is a small part of a larger project we hope to complete exploring the stories and experiences of people who bought strange items from the backs of comic books.
