Can you be more specific by what you mean by "won't run"?  This question
may sound silly, but we're actually a little serious here: does Python
give out an exception or traceback?  Do you see anything at all on the
screen when you run the program?  And have you been able to get other
pygame examples to work yet?

Many of us have already seen the Chimp example from pygame's web page:


so I'm pretty sure we can get this straightened out quickly.  But we
really do need more information about how the program is failing;
otherwise, we can't effectively debug the situation.

Good luck to you!
