Wednesday Trivia Question

What was the name of Jennifer of the Jungle’s gorilla sidekick on The Electric Company?

The gorilla in question was, of course, just a guy in a gorilla costume. In fact, Jim Boyd – who may be better known as the grouchy J. Arthur Crank – is credited as the gorilla in the classic kids show (although, to be fair, it could have been anybody in that ape suit). Also, this question works whether you grew up on the original 1970s program or the 2000s remake since the gorilla is the only character from the original series to return for the newer one.

But what was the gorilla’s name? It’s Paul – Paul the Gorilla. Definitely a fan favorite.
