Wendy was a female, brown capuchin monkey. She came from a private owner, after she matured, and got out of control. The famous organ grinder man, Roy Roberts, had cautioned Mr. Gurdy about female monkeys. True to these prophetic words, Wendy turned out to be quite a handful. Hurdy Gurdy was never was able to train her. She was shy but friendly in a treacherous sort of way, and remained one of the “mascots,” to the show. She had many human and simian friends, however, and was very photogenic.
