Monkey Challenge: The Foolish Philosopher

The 'rescuing the virtuous princess from the evil kidnapper' plot, with a moral about the wrongs of snobbery, is given the Monkey twist. The princess is a water spirit, like Sandy, and she falls for him even though his social status is beneath hers.

Unfortunately, Sandy doesn't work well as a romantic lead - this role is usually better filled by a guest character - and even the antics of Monkey, Pigsy and Yu Lung can't rescue this episode from being dull, seen-it-all-before fare.

Forgettable, and definitely not one I'd recommend.
