Captain Simian- The story of Charlie (voice of
Jerry Doyle), a 1960s NASA chimp sent into space on the sci-fi cartoon CAPTAIN
SIMIAN AND THE SPACE MONKEYS/SYN/1996.
Shao Lin, Gor-illa, Spydor, Captain Simian &
Accidentally traveling beyond the solar system, Charlie is retrieved by a
strange race of aliens who imbued Charlie with genius-level intelligence.
Now known as Captain Simian, Charlie was given a space ship named the Primate
Avenger and a mandate to battle evil in the galaxy.
Aided by the Orbitron (voice Jeff Glen Bennett), a floating orb that contained a
vast repository of advanced alien knowledge, Charlie returns to Earth and
enlists the aid of primates:
- Gor-illa (a brawny Gorilla)
- Shao Lin (a female Tibetan Monkey)
- Spydor (a Spider Monkey)
- Splitzy (a baboon)
Together, they become "The Space Monkeys" who like Captain Simian were imbued
with advanced intelligence.
The Captain's primary enemy was the sinister Lord Nebula (voice of Michael
Dorn), and his villainous creation Rhesus 2 (voice of Malcolm McDowell) whose
mission was to conquer the universe.
The 26-episode series was produced by Hallmark Entertainment / Monkeyshine
Productions in association with Epoc Ink.
