Ha, ha! General Urko will totally confiscate your chocolate milk and gladly execute you on Councillor Zaius’ orders for you having ventured into the forbidden zone in the first place, silly human child.

To be honest Burke (James Naughton), Virdon (Ron Harper) and Galen (Roddy McDowall) didn’t exactly take off into the Forbidden Zone during their adventures but they certainly encountered more than a few human city ruins. I still think it’s a shame this series didn’t take off back in 1974, there really is a lot to like about it.

  1. What a beautiful piece of art! I have come close to buying one several times but just can’t seem to pull the trigger. Probably because the cheapest one I have seen was $85.
