In the Fall of 2004, a new Toon came swinging into Toontown after getting a Monkey Mandate in the "New Toon Species" Election. Hopefully, their monkey business will throw a monkey wrench into the Cog's plans to take over Toontown - and maybe the Gag Shops will start selling banana cream pies - yum!

–Trading Card Description


Monkey is a toon species. The monkey species can only be created if the player's account is a member, sharing this trait with the bear and horse species. They came out on the Test Server on November 3, 2004[1]and on the open server on November 11, 2004[2].

Monkeys "chatter" when talking. If a word not in the Toontown dictionary is used through SpeedChat Plus, assuming the player does not have the true friend option on, or other toons do not have SpeedChat Plus, the word will be "censored" with "ooo," "ooh," or "ahh."

Head designs

Monkeys have four different head designs that can be used to create a toon through the Create-A-Toon process. They can be created in any color.

Notable monkeys

Notable non-playable monkeys, other than those who give out ToonTasks, include: Mata Hairy and the four "grease" monkeys in Goofy's Auto Shop; Anita Winn, Graham Pree, Ivona Race, and Phil Errup.

When they say ooo typed, it will sound the same as "ooo" or "Owoooo!"


  • Monkeys were the first new species to be added to the game via an election.
  • They have the most SpeedChat phrases that are related to them. (e.g. "Quit monkeying around!" and "You're the top banana.")
    • These phrases were added when monkeys were released to Toontown.
  • There are no monkey NPC toons in Toontown Central, Donald's Dock, Daisy Gardens or Minnie's Melodyland.
  • Simian Sam was in the game before monkeys were released, but he was a cat. He was changed into a monkey later. He is the only monkey NPC in The Brrrgh who is not on Polar Place.
  • For some time after monkeys were released, they said "blah" and "blah blah blah" instead of "ooo," "ooh," ahh," etc. [3]
  • The monkey toons in-game look slightly different from the monkey toon concept art shown on the Toon Species election artwork. In-game, the monkey toons have solidly colored faces, while on the Toon Species election artwork, they have faces the same color as their muzzles, along with the base color for the rest of their head.
