Cartoon character: Blip, the monkey (?)

My dog has this amazing ability to appear on the other side of a baby gate that we set up to keep the other dog out of some area, and I've started calling him 'Blip' as a result.

I vaguely remember a cartoon chartacter named Blip, and the character was a semi-anthropomorphic monkey, sort of like 'Bandit' from Jonny Quest. Blip wasn't a JQ character, however, and it's been driving me crazy all weekend trying to remember where Blip came from. Space Ghost, perhaps?

Not to be confused with Debbie the Bloop, an alien chimp with big prosthetic ears on the first season (and maybe one or two eps of Season 2) of “Lost in Space.”

We had two dogs who had this ability.
One we discovered could s q u e e z e through the slats.
The other had the ability to jump, grab, climb and skittle over the top.

A CGI character named Blarp was in the movie.
