Kenny and the Chimp was an unproduced animated series planned by Tom Warburton for the early 2000s. Its pilot was released in 1998, but the series was not picked up, although Warburton eventually made the animated Codename: Kids Next Door TV series for Cartoon Network
This series was about an unlucky boy named Kenny who was always accompanied by an unintelligent chimpanzee named Chimpy, who would regularly create problems for him in the various situations they went through.
The episode "Diseasy Does It" was the only episode produced. Its alternative title was "Chimp -N- Pox". There was also another episode called "Got Your Nose", and it was about to also be produced, but never released presumably after Cartoon Network didn't pick up the show.
Connection to Codename: Kids Next Door
Among the planned recurring characters for Kenny and the Chimp was a group of rebellious children known as "Those Kids Next Door", who carried out their mischief from a house next to Kenny's home, and frequently caused trouble for him.
These characters would eventually evolve into the members of Sector V and become the protagonists of Codename: Kids Next Door. Professor XXXL, who was featured in "Diseasy Does It", became a recurring antagonist on Kids Next Door starting with the episode Operation: A.R.C.T.I.C.. Kenny and Chimpy also made a brief cameo in the pilot episode of Codename: KND, "No P in the Ool".
