Planet of the Apes

Thursday, January 23, 2020

Planet of the Apes, based on the 1968 movie & sequels. It aired on CBS, & used Roddy McDowall from the movie series as Galen, a chimpanzee. Roddy played Cornelius in the movies. This was another no-starter, cancelled after half a season, due to competition from Chico & the Man and Sanford & Son. Looking at the costumed actors, they seem laughable after the 2011 reboot, but the original movies earned praise for the makeup & costumes. I remember the string of movies from the 60’s & the reboot from the 2010s, but I can’t remember the tv show ... or maybe I’m just mixing the tv show with the movies (?)




Too Much Monkey Business, Elvis Presley, 1968



Too Much Monkey Business
Salesman talking to me tried to run me up a creek
Says you can buy it, go on try it, you can pay me next week
Uh-uh, too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in
Oh-ho-ho

(OK, this is from the original movie)

Blonde haired, good lookin' tryin' to get me hooked
Wants me to marry, settle down and get a home and and write a book
Uh-uh, too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in
Oh-ho-ho



Pay phone, somethin' wrong, dial gone,
Well me ought to sue the operator for tellin' me a tale
Uh-uh, too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in
Oh-ho-ho



Oh-ho-ho ...... Oh-ho-ho ...... Oh-ho-ho ...... Oh-ho-ho


(This time, they’re after our underwear and stuff)

Been to Vietnam, been a fightin' in the war
Army bar, army chow, army clothes, army car
Uh-uh, too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in
Oh-ho-ho



Workin' in the fillin' station, too many tasks
Wipe the windo', check the tires, check the oil, dollar gas
Uh-uh, too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in
Oh-ho-ho



The first
Blonde haired, good lookin' tryin' to get me hooked
Wants me to marry, get a home, settle down and and write a book
Uh-uh, too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in



Oh-ho-ho
Too much monkey business, Oh-ho-ho, too much monkey business, Oh-ho-ho
Too much monkey business, Oh-ho-ho too much monkey business, Oh-ho-ho
Too much monkey business, Oh-ho-ho too much monkey business
