MI se help; herman toothrot MIA

Hey guys, I was wondering if you could please help me, if so that would be lovely thanks.

I'm playing secret of MI special edition. I'm at the part where I received the navigator head from the friendly cannibals. I've left the village a few times, came back and supposedly herman is supposed to come so I can give him his banana picker. (I don't even know why he needs that thing since it seems like he has enough energy to go get enough bananas himself seeing as he pops up all over the damn place except for the one time i need him to pop up)

He came before and talked about the monkey key and his missing banana picker, but I left him, and after that he's never come back again.

I can press "h" and it says "find herman and give him the banana picker" but I can't find him anywhere else.
I've looked through walkthroughs and they all say he's supposed to appear when you re-enter the village and walk to your right. and i've done that and it's a no-go.

Any suggestions?

Hi, china. That's a little odd. Normally, you wouldn't be able to get the head of the navigator unless you had already gone down into the monkey head cave. To get into the cave, you need the giant Q-tip from Herman, which you wouldn't have gotten unless you already gave him the banana picker. So you might have already given it to him and forgotten about it...or you found some sort of crazy-ass loophole that the rest of us can't quite figure out...lol.

The game's hint system can be a little off from time to time, and sometimes it gives you hints that are obsolete. Since you already have the head of the navigator, have you tried going down into the monkey head cave(which you hopefully can do) and using the navigator's head?

Can't find Herman Toothrot! Not a complaint you hear very often.

L.M.A.O. I know, right?


-It appears to be a rubber chicken with a pulley.
-It's actually real.
-It's a real rubber chicken?
-No, it's a real chicken.
-A real chicken... made of rubber?
-NO, it's a REAL CHICKEN, NO RUBBER.
-What is it for?
-TO EAT!
-You eat rubber chickens?!!

Oh man, I've just arrived on Monkey Island and I can't believe there's nobody here! No sign of life, no notes lying around, nothing.

Visiting Monkey Island without being able to find Herman Toothrot would be like roaming a shadow dimension, where everything is in greyscale and no living creature has corporeal form.
