He appears to have no name. He has no defined job, yet he lives in an expensive condo in the “big city” with a monkey and the other residents don’t complain. He goes to expensive restaurants with a monkey and no one complains. He travels extensively and has contacts everywhere he goes who allow him to “vacation” in their homes, has widespread scientific knowledge, has been called in to assist NASA in important space missions, is always cool in a crisis, and wears yellow-colored explorer’s garb exclusively and has not visibly aged since the 1940s.

Just who is “the man in the yellow hat” and what are his plans for monkey- and Mankind? [queue ominous music]
