Musical Joe. As noted in our update of 12Dec2010, Musician Tom visited Silverback Villa for a musical soiree to see how he would react. And at the end of the performance, Joe does a wonderful purr-rumble which seems to indicate he liked it!
Musical Joe. Another movie, this one with Tom playing Over the Rainbow. Again Joe rumbles at the end of the performance!

Some All Time Favorites
Joe's First Day Out: This remains one of the all time favorite video clips to watch, as Joe went outside for the first time in a decade, in April 2004.

Oliver's first day out ...  The initial departure from the villa was slow and is shown in 2 video clips.
Oliver's first day out, Part Two:  Walking thru habitat.
