Code Monkeys(2550)

Other Title(s)Code Monkeys
SynopsisThe plot of Code Monkeys revolves around the fictitious video game company GameaVision (a play on companies like Activision) and its eccentric employees, mainly the slacker Dave and his high-strung friend Jerry. The entire series takes place in the Silicon Valley city of Sunnyvale, California during the 1980s. Code Monkeys is mostly grounded in toilet humor and stoner comedy,[citation needed] but some of the show's jokes stem from its numerous references to video games, past and present, but mostly those from the 8-bit era including River City Ransom, Castlevania, Mega Man, Contra, Ikari Warriors, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!, and Super Mario Bros. This also extends to cameos from well known video game developers, who appear in the show pitching their ideas to GameaVision for the games that would later make them famous, usually to be rejected, insulted, and sometimes injured or killed off.
