What Toy Monkey is a Celebrity?

The Musical Jolly Chimp played a role as a security guard in Toy Story 3. We received one in excellent shape just this week. Ours is from the 70s and uses batteries. It works! Check out more details on the colorful, celebrity life of the Musical Jolly Chimp!

We have a wonderful Musical Jolly Chimp – just like the crazy one in Toy Story 3

Did You Know?

This crazy monkey toy has been included in movies, books, and songs. Can you guess all of them before you read the following quote?

The cymbal banging monkey toy has appeared in the opening scene of¬†Rebel Without a Cause¬†in 1955, the 1977¬†Steven Spielberg¬†film¬†Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the 1988 horror film¬†Monkey Shines, the 1996 film¬†Merlin’s Shop of Mystical Wonders, the 2000 film¬†How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000 film), the 2004 film¬†Eurotrip, the 2007 film¬†The Simpsons Movie, the 2010¬†Disney/Pixar¬†animated¬†film¬†Toy Story 3¬†and the 2019 horror film¬†Annabelle Comes Home.

It is also widely seen in the games¬†Fallout 4¬†and¬†Fallout 76, and features in horror writer¬†Stephen King’s 1980 story¬†The Monkey.

One also appears in the¬†Wallace and Gromit¬†2008 short¬†A Matter of Loaf and Death. A monkey with a bomb attached to its back features prominently in the¬†Call of Duty¬†franchise‚Äôs ‚ÄúZombies‚ÄĚ gamemode.

The 2006¬†Hot Chip¬†song¬†Over and Over¬†references “a monkey with a miniature cymbal”.

The character Jinx from League of Legends has a big emotional connection to cymbal-banging monkeys. Other than explosions which give her happiness, cymbal-banging monkeys give her peace to her mentally ill mind. This connection can be seen in her starring 2021 animated series Arcane: League of legends.
