Greatest Hits and Misses from 6 Screen Versions of《西游记》(Journey to the West)

This video is seriously epic!

It brought back many fond childhood memories for Rachel and I and also tickled our funny bones. 《西游记》(Journey to the West) has been made into so many different screen versions through the years, but the 1986 China-made TV version still remains the best in my opinion:

西游记 (1986年电视剧) - 1986 China-made TV version of "Journey to the West"
西游记 (1986年电视剧) - 1986 China-made TV version of "Journey to the West"

The 孙悟空 (Sun Wu Kong) played by China actor, 六小龄童 (Liu Xiao Ling Tong) remains the most memorable and iconic 孙悟空 ever. All other versions are compared to him as a yardstick till this day:

六小龄童 (Liu Xiao Ling Tong), the undisputed best 孙悟空 (Sun Wu Kong) actor ever
六小龄童 (Liu Xiao Ling Tong), the undisputed best 孙悟空 (Sun Wu Kong) actor ever

  1. I love your video. You have much better eyes than I do. I do find that the other versions beside the 1986 & 1999 version do not engage me. I can’t suspend my disbelief when the monkey starts out with so much human qualities.

    I laughed so hard at the octopus. I am very glad that for the second season, the production kept the original ending song. I remember that I used to sing that all the time. Now that I’ve watched season 2, I hum it or sing it everywhere.
