Nobodys Tapes

Time of the Apes Play

In 1975 Fox created a TV spinoff to the much loved Planet of the apes films. The following year when the series was shown in Japan on TBS. Rival station Fuji TV decided to create their own ape show titled Saru no Gundan (Army of the Apes). 26 episodes were made, even though lacking in budget it actually lasted longer then the original POTA series which was cancelled after only 14 episodes.

In 1987 Sandy Frank edited and dubbed the entire series in to one 100 minute feature film which later found notoriety for being featured on an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

The film was released in the UK on VHS which bizarrely was given an 18 rating by the BBFC, though I would say is actually tamer then most of the original POTA films. These videos are taken from that tape.

Note: about halfway through the film a 1 and half minute scene is for some reason shown twice on the VHS which I have left in.
