interactions with individual characters, stories and games. The first three channels will
feature The Monkey King, Stan Lee’s Kids Universe (Dex T-Rex) and Maxi-The Taxi
Dog (with more channels on the way).

characters inspired by the classic Chinese tale – The Buffalo King, The Jade Emperor
and the Rock Monster. Other characters will be added as the app is updated.

the development of additional content for the Monkey King Channel.

beloved Monkey King, on this incredible on-line network,” said Wehrhahn,

young audiences, so for us it’s the ideal place from which to introduce our characters to
a new audience” Along with the Monkey King app, MK Games is launching an on-line social network web
