The Three Little Monkeys is the fourteenth Monkey Fable in Ape Escape 2[1][2].


Part 1[]

Once upon a time, there were three little monkey brothers who had escaped from a professor's laboratory and run off into the forest. The eldest brother was lazy, the middle brother was unreliable, but the youngest brother was quite a diligent fellow, always collecting enough bananas to make up for his two older siblings.

Part 2[]

One day, when the youngest monkey was out collecting bananas, he noticed a monkey running around in a frenzy. When he asked the monkey what was the matter, it seemed that a giant Jimmy armed with a Monkey Net was lurking in the area. Hearing that, the youngest brother ran home as fast as he could to warn his older brothers of the danger.

Part 3[]

After sharing the news with his brothers, the three of them began constructing house to protect themselves from the terrible Jimmy. The eldest brother quickly gathered up some straw, and slapped together a house on the spot. The middle brother built a house with wood. And the youngest brother found some bricks, and labored hard to build a sturdy house. A few days later, the dreaded Jimmy reached the homes of the three brothers.

Part 4[]

The first house of straw could not even stand up to Jimmy's body-slam attack. So this brother ran to the next brother's house. However the wooden house was vulnerable to Jimmy's Stun Club, and so the two brothers had to scramble to the youngest brother's house of brick. Unfortunately the brick house was still under construction. All three were captured together!

The End


  • This Monkey Fable is based on a well-known folktale, The Three Little Pigs.
  • In the PAL version, the main antagonist goes by Hikaru instead of Jimmy to match his name as it appears in PAL versions of Ape Escape 2. The Monkey Net is also referred to as the Gotcha Net[3].
