Apes! My 1st appointment tv show

I was in 1st grade and remember rushing through dinner on Friday nights so I wouldn’t miss a second of this show. I even got into the weird game show with Nipsy Russell that aired right before. I’m thrilled someone had the sense to do a great deep dive into this series. Now you need to start doing episodes reviewing each and every Apes TV show Topps card.
