Funshine Friday: Return to the Planet of the Apes

Return to the Planet of the Apes intro, 1975

DePatie-Freleng produced 13 episodes of the animated series Return to the Planet of the Apes and they aired on NBC in 1975 and ’76. The animation was quite limited and there was a distinct lack of Roddy McDowall and Kim Hunter, but hey, it was more Planet of the Apes, so we watched and vaguely enjoyed.

Here’s the intro. Hit the IMDb link below for full episodes if your ape interest is piqued.

Imagine the eyes blinking and the camera zooming and there you have it… spine-tingling animation!
