I first created Gorkilla for Super Duper Ham: Day One. When I started developing this short story into a more complex narrative, I questioned the existence of apes in the otherwise mammal-filled world I was building. For this reason, Gorkilla was cut from the story to be repurposed for one of my other projects.

As I developed the Ninjanzee Robot for The Amazing Adventures of Awesome and Oops, I saw an opportunity for Gorkilla Robot.
