UT:10 News Mascot
Little is known about Production Monkey. He magically appeared one day several years ago and has been part of the UT:10 News Team ever since. When asked about his upbringing he told UT:10 reporters, "Hard luck and trouble is my only friend. I been on my own ever since I was ten. Born under a bad sign, been down since I began to crawl. If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all" However we doubt this is true because is sound suspiciously like the lyrics of an Albert King song. Production Monkey lives somewhere in a magical cave in the Rocket Hall Studio and makes his appearance every Tuesday to bring smiles to the faces of the cast and crew.
