Brine Monkeys are small pseudo-primate creatures from the planet Sorenia that exist in stasis in cyst-like eggs until immersion in water. When hatched in alcohol they possess a pronounced proclivity for procreation.
Brine Monkey Eggs, packaged by Cereno Products Inc. and sold as Space Monkeys.
First seen in Space Quest 5, where Roger was given by Nelo Jones a pack at the Molly's Chug & Glug SpaceBar. Shortly thereafter, the Space Monkeys were involved in an "incident" leading up to the destruction of the bar.

JUST ADD WATER - THAT'S ALL IT TAKES!
In seconds your cute, cuddly Space-Monkeys will hatch and come to life right before your eyes! Within seconds you'll be on your way to hours of fun and bogus superiority as you and your friends dominate a lower life form. Space-Monkeys will fill your need to lord over others while bringing laughter and smiles into your otherwise pathetic, lonely, insignificant life.
SO DESPERATE TO LIVE YOU CAN EVEN TRAIN THEM
You'll laugh manically at the antics of these little monsters as they play and frolic. You howl with insensitive abandon as they perform stunts. You'll never tire of watching them, knowing you hold their tiny destinies in your hands.
Raising Space-Monkeys is so easy, any idiot can do it. Feeding is never a problem because they eat each other. Anyone who loves pets will adore these little guys. Would-be meglomaniacs will treasure them as a great substitute for world domination. Best of all, we'll show you how to teach them to obey your every command while avoiding embarrassing questions about the prime directive. Just remember not to feed them after midnight and to keep them away from alcohol.
"Just remember not to feed them after midnight" is a reference to the film Gremlins.
