I loved the "ape's" point of view. Makes you wonder if we are the 2nd smartest thing on the earth. Great episode, had a smile through the whole thing.

Well, a Tammy Grimes narrated show, but kind of silly and campy. It is about two anthropoid apes in the New York Zoo who happen to understand English (well, the male does, the female doesn't). They witness a human couple discussing murdering an uncle outside of their cage. The male ape, Waldo, understands, and tries to do something. He deals with the anguish of knowking someone is going to be killed, and talks about it incessantly with his ape-mate Edna. Waldo gets his cummupins though smile.gif Too many "what-ifs" in this episode for me personally, but still tolerable to listen to.

This is one of the most original of all the episodes. It took a great imagination to create such an episode. 5 stars.


This one is surprisingly good. And the zookeeper is really well played.

Dan Pearson

Funny and kind of light hearted despite the one point they must go through ten different ways to say "ape" (babboon, monkey, chimpanzee, gorilla, etc). Well done!

You 'real not supposed to give away the plot Manuel This is fantasy remember

Great episode. The apes really earned their bananas and my like rating.
