A monkey is a member of either of two of the three groupings of simian primates. These three groupings are the New World monkeys, the Old World monkeys, and the apes. The New World monkeys are classified within the parvorder Platyrrhini, whereas the Old World monkeys (superfamily Cercopithecoidea) form part of the parvorder Catarrhini, which also includes the apes.
Monkey is the English language version of a Japanese television series, based on the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West by Wu Cheng'en.

Monkey: A Folk-Tale of China (1942), usually known as simply Monkey, is an abridged translation by Arthur Waley of the Chinese classic text Journey to the West by Wu Cheng'en.

Because of this, it has been extremely heavily cited by Western scholars of Chinese literature.

For a woman to dream of feeding a monkey, denotes that she will be betrayed by a flatterer.
