There are a number of these. Son Go Ku is the title of several versions.  There was a Chinese film based on the story in the
eighties; there was _The Monkey Prince_ in '97/'98, probably the first American version of the story, but the one you are probably
looking for is _Saiyu-ki_ (Osama Tezuka, et al, 1960).  It was released on video about eight years ago in both widescreen anamorphic
and pan & scan VHS.  The U.S. title was _Alakazam the Great_.  The widescreen version cost twice as much.  Neither remained
"in-print" very long.  I wanted to get the widescreen version, but never did, because I don't have much expendable income.
