Return To The planet of the apes

December 17, 2017

Episode 95 is Return To The Planet Of The Apes (1975).

Return to the Planet of the Apes is an animated series,
by DePatie-Freleng Enterprises in association with 20th Century Fox Television,
based upon Planet of the Apes by Pierre Boulle. Boulle's novel had previously inspired five films and a TV series,
 beginning with the 1968 film Planet of the Apes starring Charlton Heston.
Unlike the film, its sequels, and the 1974 live action TV series, which involved a primitive ape civilization,
Return to the Planet of the Apes depicted a technologically advanced society,
complete with automobiles, film, and television;
as such it more closely resembled both Boulle's original novel and early
concepts for the first Apes movie which were changed due to budgetary limitations in the late 1960s.
