Monty is Scribble’s former pet, and a quiet presence as Scribble’s mother and aunt go to the Old Zoo to ‘constructively abandon’ him. Monty subsequently reappears in all the right places at the right time, unobtrusively making things happen while maintaining his slightly worried, seen-it-all-unfortunately expression.
For instance, it is Monty who, while visiting Drakanica in her Mall, that there is another potential project for her at the Old Zoo. Scribble is a friend of the little owl whom Drakanica has successfully rebrained and renamed Cogs. And this old acquaintance is very much in need of a tail. He yearns to be the squirrel his father would be proud of, and his girlfriend can admire.
The perfect batman, Monty has a decidedly helpful and quietly capable air about him, and brings to mind a perfect general factotum the British in India would have only dreamed about.
He is much more than that, though. It is Monty who gets Cogs to call Drakanica to the rescue when Sheena is about to begin Scribble’s lobotomy. And finally, it is Monty who completes the capture of Sheena according to Scribble’s cunning plan. Then he assumes the duty of comforting Sheena in her prison by listening to her rather well-performed karaoke singing.
Everyone should have a Monkey-Moth like Monty.
