Rocket Monkeys is a Canadian animated television series that was created by Dan Abdo and Jason Patterson and premiered on Teletoon in Canada on January 10, 2013.[1] The series premiered on Nickelodeon in the United States on March 4, 2013. The series is produced by Breakthrough Entertainment in association with Teletoon Canada Inc., Atomic Cartoons and Hornet Films.


Brothers Gus and Wally are monkey astronauts. They're not the brightest or coolest astronauts, but since they're the only ones around, they are called upon to go into space and carry out different kinds of important missions—including battling rogue black holes and vengeful aliens. Other members of the brothers' crew include bossy astrophysicist Dr. Chimpsky, who gives the monkeys their assignments; YAY-OK, a devoted robot that is slightly outdated and is the brothers' only hope to help keep them on course; and Inky, a space octopus and artist who communicates through his ink drawings.
