    Watching Return to the Planet of the Apes

    And there's a scene with what I assume is an ape farmer, complete with straw hat and stick of dried wheat in his mouth, driving a truck filled with hay. He's listening to the radio and I found the song funny- "I'm Going Humanoid Over You." Corny, but creative.

    I am enjoying this series, but it is hard to get past the really low production value and sometimes emotionless dialogue.

    This clip is only stills, but has the audio-
    WANTED - Solid-Boxed WGSH's, C.8 or better.

    That's a true high point of this series. This was truly my gateway into Apes and i never missed it and vividly remember watching it.

    It was hard to rewatch as an adult (except for the parts I rememebered as a kid) but i has a lot going for it in terms of continuity and voice action.

    However it is awfully slow. The best experience i had was watching it with my son when he was four, he loved it too.

    Tune sounds a little like the Just Because polka

    True, the pacing is awfully strange, but the visuals across the series are awesome. Such an odd and cool part of Apemania.

    I actually really love it's design, I think the only piece of memoribilia from it though is the colourforms set.
