In 1967 whilst on a routine mission, being shot into space by NASA, Charlie the Chimpanzee and his companion, a cuddly fairground banana named Barny became lost in space.
Rescued by an advanced alien race Charlie and Barney were taken aboard the aliens vessel. The aliens experimented on Charlie, giving him new bionic limbs and an advanced intellect. However, the experiments drove Charlie slightly mad and he fell in love with Barney, believing him to be a living breathing female chimpanzee named Sandra.
Worried that Sandra would suffer the same fate Charlie planned a daring escape, only to realise that they had travelled several light years from Earth.
Now Charlie with his new found abilities travels a universe of high adventure, searching for a way back home.

    Thanks Naf – yeah initially I wanted to create a ‘comic book cover’ style design as an intro to a series of Space Chimp T’s. As a comic book cover the design had to be in a box, and although I do like the design, I agree with you regarding its use on a T. Live and learn.
