Miss Simian is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. She teaches seventh grade at Elmore
Junior High and has been doing so for over 300,000 years. Miss Simian absolutely despises Gumball and will do anything to ruin his mischievous plans. Principal Brown has a maddening crush on her and she gladly returns the feeling.


Miss Simian is a very, very old baboon. She has dark grey fur, and a homely primate face. She usually wears a pale brownish-red polka-dotted dress. Her body shape is similar to that of a baboon standing upright; her knuckles dangle very low to the floor, and she is very skinny. Her voice is raspy and cold, and she intimidates most of her students with her grumpy and uncaring attitude.


Miss Simian acts very grumpy and doesn't seem to care about her students in the least, especially Gumball, whom she hates with a passion. She is a vicious and sadistic woman, who takes great pleasure in giving out pop quizzes and outright lying to her students just so she doesn't get in trouble. Her nasty attitude is somewhat justified by the fact that she's been a teacher for over 300,000 years.

For whatever reason, Principal Brown is deeply in love with her and will do anything to please her.


The word "simian" in Miss Simian's name means monkey, which is accurate since Miss Simian is a baboon. The "miss" in her name indicates that she is not married.
