there are three groupings of simians; new world monkies, old world monkies and apes. a monkey is a simian that is not an ape. prosimians (lemurs, etc.) are not monkies either.

example species of monkies: spider monkey, macaques, baboons, marmosets, etc

example species of non-monkies: humans, chimpanzees, gibbon, lemur, gorilla, orangutang. etc.
monkey: thanks popular culture for making people think that chimpanzees (and other apes) are monkies.

Classic TV show. Featuring a Buddhist pilgrimage to return Holy scriptures from India back to China, always bothered by monsters and demons on the way.
A Japanese show based on a Chinese legend, and the young priest was played by a woman. His disciples were all animal spirits. Monkey, Pigsy, Sandy (a Kappa (a type of fish spirit), and Yu Lung was a horse, but used to be a dragon; though he would generally just be in horse form.)
The other three were similar to the Three Stooges, in that despite being good friends they were always fighting. VERY FUNNY SHOW!! WITH TERRIBLE EFFECTS THAT ADDED TO IT'S CHARM.
Tripataka:"Monkey, behave! We Buddhists don't kill!"
Monkey: "But he's a demon!!?"
Tripataka:"I said NO KILLING!"
Monkey:"You spoil all my fun!... Can't I just kill him a bit?"

Pigsy:"I do all the work"
Monkey:"You? You lazy swine!? Even Sandy does more than you!"
Sandy: "What's that supposed to mean?! I do as much as you, probably more!"
Monkey:"Is that right, eh? Then who killed all those monsters back there, eh?"
Sandy:"I'm a philosopher!"
Monkey: "Then I guess your philosophy in life is to stand back and let me do all the work, Mmmm Fishface?!"
Pigsy: "They're going to fiiight!"
Monkey:"Stay out of this Hogbrain! Or I'll fight you both... With one arm behind my back!...And I won't even break a sweat."
