This movie has some of the weirdest camera stuff going on. What's with all of the high-speed zooming and twirling around?

Joel has a pretty decent baseball swing in that awesome opening host segment or they did a plethora of takes. It's harder than it looks to hit a round ball with a round bat off a robot head, but we found out Joel is a Brewers fan.

After 20 years, I still don't get this: If Caroline is Johnny's sister, why doesn't she live with him in the same house???

"Maybe an earthquake!" "Yes, but nothing will happen suddenly." Just have to say, in my experience, that's kinda what earthquakes DO. It's why scientists are trying to create some sort of early warning system for earthquakes, but to my knowledge no one's done it yet. Anyone else find that line rather hilarious?

Gotta love Sandy Frank’s production values. In the scene where His Excellency stops the execution of Godo and the others, an actor dubbing one of the underlings completely blows a line: “Your Excellencly.”
How much does it cost to retake a dubbed line, fer Pete’s sake?

In the opening segment, when they're playing tee ball -- they break a window in the Satellite of Love and stuff blows in at them?

Wow. His Excellency - despite being so "peaceful" - is very quick to threaten a child and backhand a woman.

Seriously underrated episode, good right from the start. The Sandy Frank song, Johnny's "I don't care," line, "Don't dub with your mouth full." It always cracks me up before the first commercial break.

Funny how no one even considered recovering the kid's bodies following the earthquake. I guess Johnny's parents didn't care.

The boys just couldn't get past monkeys throwing poop at people! Must have been at least 12-13 references to it. Got funnier evey time. The 21 turd salute...

I love the "Why Doesn't Johnny Care?" host segment. The bots' spot-on imitation of a super-old-school projector is awesome, but the weird description of Johnny's dark, institutionalized world sound like something out of LOST, like a leftover Dharma Project film. Creepy and fascinating.

So I'm watching all the episodes in order from Season 1. I'll probably watch Season 0 eventually, but how do the riffs in this episode compare to season 0? Worth watching?

Crow's ape fashion reportage at 1:14:00 is hilarious. "This little number is red hot and looks great on any species. . . . Halt! Who goes there? Why it's Jacques, in the timeless Colonel Sanders topcoat."

Time of the Apes started out as an entire TV series broadcast in Japan (of course). Sandy Frank then edited the whole thing down to a 97-minute movie. BBI pared it down even further to make KTMA episode 17. This episode is missing at least one scene from the KTMA version, but it's honestly a little less confusing without it.

Special guest appearance by baby Eli Mallon (son of Jim?).
