Gorilla King. The Gorilla King was created by The Kids’ Theatre of Shanghai and appeared in the play The Gorilla King (1941?). The Gorilla King is Sun Wukong, the Monkey King of the Chinese novel Xi-yóu-ji, a.k.a. Journey to the West (circa 1590). In The Gorilla King Sun Wukong is also King Kong (I) and lives on Skull Island, but once China is invaded by a group of conspicuously unnamed invaders the Gorilla King swims to China and liberates the country.
