Description: Mighty Joe was one of the many Giant Apes dragged out of their jungles and caged for public display, this time in Hollywood, California (USA). Fortuitously, he managed to make it back to Tanzania (Africa) alive with a little help from his human friends, and hopefully lived out the rest of his days in relative peace.

Description: Almost fifty years after the first Mighty Joe was discovered and abducted, an even larger Giant Ape had the great misfortune of going through almost the exact same thing. It ain't easy being a big gorilla.
