Monchichi, Russ Berrie and Co, 1977
These toys originated in Japan much earlier than their 1980s TV cartoon debut in the US. The Saturday morning cartoon lasted only one season.
Monchichis were monkey-like creatures who lived in the forest land of Monchia at the very top of tall trees well above the clouds. The tribe's leader, Wizzar, was a magical wizard who could make up spells and potions to defeat their enemy, the evil Grumplins of Grumplor.
