It's Ours by Avigdor Cohen

Avigdor Cohen is one of the Israeli animators mentioned in Bendazi's Cartoons, where he is identified as having been born in Vienna in 1920 and directing a 1979 film called Samson's Love. I was unable to find any further biographical information on him, but at least one of his shorts is available on YouTube (or so I'm guessing; due to the scanty information, I cannot say for certain if the is the same person, or a different man with the same name):

  1. MARCO the Monkey...that followed Mish-Mish EFFENDI character by FRANKEL Bros. Even though Prof.DARWIN came to HIS conclusion and verdict about the origins of Human race as our ancestry species,still,Frankels didn^t name it MAYMOON or MIZO or any name that could have offended the others, even though those 2 names i mentioned were named in S A M I R & S I N D I B A D Egyptian children^s magazines in the 1950s as monkeys names?? as respect & also to avoid future unnecessary headaches?!MAYBE?? even though Marco or Mark turned into a cute little creature in few scenes, also the BAHEYA female character was inspired by then infamous Egyptian/JEW silver screen Superstar of the 1930>1950 late Madam RAQYAH IBRAHIM, as similarities are too apparent?!...& Finally Whoever/however/whatever they done it thing we can admit that the FRANKELs were geniuses of their age..CARTOONS^ HISTORY WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THEM and MISH-MISHEFFENDI WITH >>GREAT<<RESPECT!!From Is-Hak BARSOUMIAN/LONDON/
