The monkey man with staff that can get taller...?
Well... Son goku is definitely based on Sun Wukong... But yes it is Sun Wukong from the series 'Monkey' just Google monkey magic. It is a great tv show, every person should see it atleast once (I thought the avatar was quite appropriate and probably recognisable for this site for reasons)
The celestial emperor stayed up all night with the star Vega "to discuss business".
Also there is a theatre play based on the show and if you ever get the chance to see it I suggest you take it. It is normally quite cheap but definitely worth the dollars
Yeah I forgot the Chinese name but its just the Japanization aint it? I'll look for that Monkey Magic series
