The Librarian? Surely you don't mean the orangutan? Not a great ape.

2nd Mighty Joe Young

Cacique Caribe11 Oct 2018 2:11 p.m. PST

+3 Mighty Joe Young

At least the size was somewhat believable, specially after the initial speculations on Gigantopithecus Blacki. :)

Ape, George of the Jungle.

Kong is Forrest Tucker's character, Tracey is the gorilla!

Does Luther from _Umbrella Academy_ (Netflix, Feb. 2019!) count?

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP11 Oct 2018 6:03 p.m. PST

I checked. Orangs are great apes, and even if they weren't would you argue with The Librarian about it?

Chimps are also great apes, so Lancelot Link is in the poll, and I have to include Bif & Stan, the writers for The Chimp Channel. Probably also Ford Carter, the Australian gazillionaire who owns the Chimp Channel.

And the Yeti King.


Also, they made a statue of this guy, so he must be important …

Monkeys ARE NOT apes, great or otherwise.

Humans are great apes, tallest great ape in fact. And chimpanzee, bonobo and urangutans are also great apes.

Who's the gorilla crime boss in Mega-City One? He seems to keep coming back every time they make 2000AD figures.

Definition of great ape

: any of several large primates including the orangutan, gorilla, chimpanzee, and bonobo that are either placed in the same family (Hominidae) as humans or are grouped in a separate family (Pongidae)
