[] Tel Aviv, Israel - Smartoonz, one of the leading children's content development companies, has just released its first entertaining interactive 3D application, for Apple iPhone(R) and iPod touch(R). The application is based on the successful Series "Monkey See Monkey Do(TM)".

Last but not least, users can watch fun clips from the TV show.
