TV Series
    (September 12, 1970-September 2, 1972)
    'Get Smart' parody featuring an all chimpanzee cast
    Followed the adventures of the good chimps of APE (Agency for the Prevention of Evil), Lancelot Link and Mata Hairi (pronounced 'hairy') vs the evil chimps of CHUMP (Criminal Headquarters for the Underworld Master Plan), led by Baron von Butcher, Dragon Lady, and Dr Strangemind
    Featured musical performances by the all-chimp band, The Evolution Revolution
    Half of the first season's one hour shows were taken up with cartoons from other ABC programs. The second season was simply a rerun of the first with the episodes reduced to a half hour run time by removing the cartoons.
    It was very expensive to produce (believed to be the most expensive Saturday morning children's program up to that time) which was probably the reason it ran only one season.
    Being a parody of 'Get Smart' made it a parody of a parody.
    The cast worked for peanuts. Or bananas actually.
    The Evolution Revolution, which used the same studio and sessions musicians as the band The Grass Roots, actually had a hit record!
    The directors did an amazing job of matching up the chimps lip movements with the dialog and were convincingly able to show chimps performing complex tasks including driving cars and playing musical instruments.
    Never in television history has there been a better show for watching stoned.
