This will only make sense if you have ever seen Speed Racer (original series or the recent movie) or are at least familiar with the formula therein.

Within the realm of Speed Racer there are two characters. Spritle and Chim-Chim.
Original Anime Version:


Live Action Version:


From Wiki: Spritle (the younger brother of Speed Racer) constantly gets into mischief, along with his pet chimpanzee Chim-Chim, and the two frequently hide together in the trunk of Speed's race car, the Mach 5.

So you have this kid who idolizes his older brother. He always wants to be in the action and is always accompanied by his Chimp friend.

After viewing the recent movie version (and remembering the original series from when I was a kid) I had an epiphany about these two characters.

Spritlle is a child with some serious ADD (even borderline mental deficiency*) and Chim-Chim is his helper Monkey.

Things make alot more sense in the world of Speed Racer when seen through this perspective.
