"What do you think of evil?"
—Phoebe to the monkeys.[src]

The Charmed Monkeys is a nickname given to the three chimpanzees injected with the blood of Prue, Piper and Phoebe Halliwell by Dr. Curtis Williamson separately. Through their blood, the monkeys also gained the sisters' magical powers. Each monkey was named after one of the sisters.


With their respective blood in each of their bodies, the monkeys had the powers of the sister they were named after. Dr. Curtis Williamson was trying to find out how Piper Halliwell survived Oroya Fever, believing that the answer lied in their blood and injected the monkeys see what would happen. When he tried to inject Monkey Prue with all three sisters' blood, it used Telekinesis to inject Doctor Williamson instead, which eventually drove him insane as mortals are unable to handle powerful magic.

Monkey Prue then astral projected to Prue. Before it returned to its own body, Prue noticed an hospital armband on its wrist that led the sisters to the monkeys. Upon arriving, Phoebe had a vision from Monkey Phoebe that showed Dr. Williamson with powers. The sisters then snuck the monkeys back to the manor, where they stripped their powers with a power stripping potion to prevent exposure. Before taking them to the zoo the following day, Phoebe taught the monkeys a little trick; See, Hear and Speak no evil.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • The monkeys were not driven mad by the magical powers like Dr. Curtis Williamson. However, they only possessed the blood of one sister each, instead of all three, indicating fewer powers (or less magic) will have a reduced effect on one's sanity/health. 
  • Since the monkeys possessed the sisters' powers, they may have had access to the Power of Three as well, but never used it. In the season 8 episode "Repo Manor," the demons Pilar, Patra and Phoenix also pumped the sisters' blood (only one of them used Paige's blood, not Prue's) into themselves and gained access to the sisters' powers and the Power of Three.
  • Phoebe taught the monkeys "See no Evil, hear no Evil, and speak no Evil" by having them cover their eyes, ears, and mouths respectively. In "Sense and Sense Ability", the sisters have their senses stolen by a Monkey Totem based on the same saying.
