Uncle Gus: For the Love of Monkeys was a short created by Lincoln Pierce and produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for the Cartoon Network. The short premiered on Cartoon Cartoon Fridays on July 14, 2000 as one of ten contenders for Cartoon Network's Big Pick, the winner of which would become the next Cartoon Cartoon. The short did not win The Big Pick, and was not picked up by Cartoon Network to become a full-length series. However, another Uncle Gus short "Uncle Gus: Not So Fast" was produced in 2001.


This cartoon follows the journey of a wily unemployed geezer and his rag-tailed bunch of friends as they travel to the zoo to reunite Uncle Gus with his AWOL fiancée.
