Hey Hey Ape fans! In this episode we look at “The Tyrant” which originally aired 11/22/1974.
Synopsis: Pete, Galen and Alan risk an encounter with Urko when they attempt to foil the plans of a dishonest ape who is using bribery to gain total control over a district of human farmers.

Unfortunately we (still) don’t get any Pete backstory but we do get Urko backstory. We meet, Aborro, an old academy friend of Urko who may be even more corrupt and evil.

We also reveal a winner in the Planet Of The Apes CD give-away. Congrats Harry Callahan! (As of now we are still waiting to hear from two iTunes winners. Hurry up, you only have until 3/19 to claim your prize). Did I mention signed CD’s by Apes Evolution author Jeff Bond? Thank you once again to La-La Land Records for supplying us with those copies.

Guess what, Ape fans! You can now be the proud owner of a Talking Apes TV T-Shirt! YES! They are now available.

1 thought on “TALKING APES TV: “The Tyrant”

  1. How ironic that Urko has zero tolerance for corruption yet he cheats at horse racing. I wish Urko had proclaimed “Admit it, you wanted to kill me because you just wanted my helmet” during the final moments. I also had no idea the two humans were brothers rather than father and son
