–Günter, Mars University
Günter is a monkey made super intelligent by the Electronium Hat, an invention by Professor Farnsworth. Günter was originally an experiment to see if a monkey could pass a course at Mars University. Seemingly on top of the world, Günter was both smart and cute, making Fry extremely jealous. After Günter's parents, a pair of monkeys possessing normal intelligence, cause a scene at a university party, Günter decides to revert to his natural state by removing the hat.
When Fry, Leela and the Professor's lives are in danger, Günter once again dons the hat with some difficulty and manages to save them all, however in doing so he falls down a massive waterfall, damaging the hat. Comfortable with the new "moderate intelligence" the damaged hat produces, he decides to abandon academic greatness in favor of business school. He got his MBA and became the president of the FOX Network.
In "Fry and Leela's Big Fling", Amy, Bender and Zoidberg delivered cars to a planet inhabited by all types of primates. Günter was one of the workers at the office that Amy, Bender and Zoidberg were delivering to.
He showed everyone around the planet and was with them when they learned that Fry and Leela "couples only Vacation" was actually in a human zoo habitat. He, Amy, Bender and Zoidberg went to see Dr. Banjo to try and convince him to let Fry and Leela out. He was last seen being tranquilized after Dr. Banjo learned that Amy was a human.
