Bobo, a chimpanzee originally from Africa, was the subject of an experiment by two microscopic aliens who wanted to increase the brain power of Earth's lower life forms. It was a success and Bobo was gifted with greater intelligence and the ability to speak. He ended up in the United States of America and became a famous crime solver known as Detective Chimp. He tried out for the Teen Titans but was immediately given the boot after saying his name. He participated in the Justice League's Next Top Talent Idol Star: Second Greatest Team Edition competition. Chimp partnered with Krypto and Animal Man in the Super Hero Summer Camp canoe race. After being initially capsized by the Teen Titans' pirate ship, their canoe was blown up by cannon fire. Detective Chimp attended the Doom Patrol's clambake in Codsville one summer and The Superhero Award Show. He was up for Best Superhero With The Best Animal-Based Powers but lost to Vixen.
Detective Chimp and Swamp Thing teamed up and formed a crew for Justice League's Next Top Talent Idol Star: Dance Crew Edition. After Robin got the coveted platinum buzzer, he rubbed it in everyone's faces and even reduced Chimp to tears. Chimp and Swamp Thing could not advance to the finals and were eliminated after their routine inspired by the movie "My Dinner with Andre." Backstage, they were one of the crews than quickly ran away after hearing Robin's offer to form a new crew with him.
