Chocco Chimp is the eighteenth episode of the 2011 series of Sooty.
The prizes have disappeared from Mr Slater’s new crazy golf course, and Richard is puzzled. Before long, world famous detectives Sherlock Sooty and Doctor Watsit are called in to investigate, and set a trap to catch the thief who turns out to be their old friend, Matthew Corbett!
- Writers Alex Skerrat and Wink Taylor make appearances as golfers.
- Indiana Sooty is a reference to the film character, "Indiana Jones".
- It is not always Matthew in the gorilla suit.
- This episode marks Matthew's first appearance since the final Sooty & Co. episode in 1998.
- When Sherlock Sooty reaches over to push Richard's fingers onto the ink pad, the end of the puppet is briefly visible.
