Hey Hey Ape fans! This week on Talking Apes TV, Richard makes a connection between Planet of the Apes and another one of his passions, The Monkees (how ironic!).
Then we dive deep into River of Flames (aired 10/18/1975). This is the 7th episode and now the half way point in this series of only 13 episodes, 1 less than the live action series.
“River Of Flames” Synopsis
Krador, the Underdweller, enlists the help of Bill and Jeff to help their world from being destroyed by the suddenly-active volcano. They suspect a trap, however if it is true than Judy will be in danger. Meanwhile Galen and Zira are battling over government funds with Zauis so they don’t go to Urko and his human-hunting agenda.
Ape History class begins as we go back in time to visit the Adventures on the Planet of the Apes comic book and Planet of the Apes magazine. You have to give Fox credit for trying so hard to relaunch their ape franchise again and again. Sadly this was also a short lived series that ended after 11 issues in December of 1976.
This comic series features colorized reprints of the official movie adaptation of POTA and Beneath the POTA which had been originally printed in Marvel’s POTA Magazine (which ran for 29 issues from 1974-1977 – FEB).
