Ubu the Gorilla worked for Gorilla Television, the pirate broadcasting operation on The Jim Henson Hour. The Gorilla crew despised popular television entertainment, including that of the Muppets, so they tried to seize control of the show and air their own material instead. Ubu's Gorilla Television cohorts were Chip and Zondra.
