Spider and Flytrap grew up deep in the jungle. It was Professor Flippenwigg who took them under his wing and taught them to speak. Every night the Professor showed them his classic movie collection of Hollywood films.
The two lovable monkeys wanted to make their way in New York and so they set up a Temp Agency on the Lower East Side with the idea that they could do any job for at least one day.
From time to time they write home to the good Professor but they are slowly being accepted as citizens of the Big Apple.
They sometimes baby sit Baby, who is a real handful owing to the fact his parents haven't been back to NY for years.
Spider and Flytrap had a dog named Lili but she moved to her own comic strip: Lili and Derek.
