Episode

Simian 7 is the planet of the primates. According to Guenter, it was colonised by a band of genetically engineered primates from Earth, led by the brave monkey Christopher Colobus. [7ACV17] The primates harbor resentment towards humans, because humans experimented on them and caged them in zoos for centuries, and so humans are forbidden on the planet. Simian 7 has its own literature, music, and art, and also a great maritime museum.

In 3013, Planet Express made a delivery to a financial-services corporation there, and Fry and Leela, as well as Leela's old boyfriend Sean and his wife — Darlene —, were the subject of a behavioural experiment in one of the planet's zoos, which tricked them into thinking that they were on a romantic holiday.
