Clipart looks like it could be based on the children’s rhyme/finger play “5 Little Monkeys Swinging in a Tree”:

Five little monkeys swinging in a tree (wave five fingers)
teasing Mr Alligator: (waggle fingers in ears)
“Can’t catch me! No, you can’t catch me!” (shaking finger as if scolding)
Here comes Mr. Alligator quiet as can be (hands palms together, weave like a snake)
and… SNAPS (clap loudly)
that monkey right out of that tree.

Four little monkeys swinging in a tree teasing Mr Alligator: “Can’t catch me! No, you can’t catch me!” Here comes Mr. Alligator quiet as can be
and… SNAPS that monkey right out of that tree.

Three little monkeys swinging in a tree teasing Mr Alligator: “Can’t catch me! No, you can’t catch me!” Here comes Mr. Alligator quiet as can be
and… SNAPS that monkey right out of that tree.

Two little monkeys swinging in a tree teasing Mr Alligator: “Can’t catch me! No, you can’t catch me!” Here comes Mr. Alligator quiet as can be
and… SNAPS that monkey right out of that tree.

One little monkey swinging in a tree teasing Mr Alligator: “Can’t catch me! No, you can’t catch me!” Here comes Mr. Alligator quiet as can be
and… SNAPS that monkey right out of that tree.
