Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp: 3-Disc Complete Special Collectors Edition
DVD ($24.98)

Fans of classic Saturday-morning television will go ape over this compilation—all 17 episodes of the wacky 1970-72 series that featured a cast of costumed chimpanzees in spy-story antics overdubbed with human voices. Grab a bunch of bananas and peel into the hairy heroics of Lancelot and his female partner Mata Hairi, representing their Agency to Prevent Evil (A.P.E.) against evil Baron Von Butcher, Wang Fu, Dragon Lady and the other bad apes of the Criminal Headquarters for Underworld Mater Plan (C.H.U.M.P.) Part of the proceeds from the sale of every DVD collection benefit the Wildlife Waystation, where the chimp who portrayed Lancelot is living out his real-life retirement years in Los Angeles.
