Editorial Reviews

In the spirit of Get Smart, ABC s action-adventure/comedy spy series (1970-72) aired Saturday mornings, starring a cast of chimpanzees whose performances were dubbed with human voices, including those of Dayton Allen, Joan Gerber, Steven Hoffman and The Love Boat s Bernie Kopell, among others. All 17 episodes have been transferred from the original studio ABC masters. In a world inhabited by chimps instead of humans, Lancelot Link (Allen), along with partner Mata Hairi (Gerber), is one of the top agents of the Agency to Prevent Evil (APE), a secret organization led by Commander Darwin (Allen) that protects the world from wrongdoers. Their chief nemesis is Baron Von Butcher (Kopell), who leads the Criminal Headquarters for Underworld Master Plan (CHUMP), an evil league bent on world conquest. Assisting the Baron is a band of bad apes including Creto, Wang Fu, the Duchess, Dragon Lady, Ali Assa Seen and Dr. Strangemind. Episodes also included musical segments featuring the psychedelic music group Evolution Revolution (even spawning the release of a soundtrack album).

Hannah Forth 5.0 out of 5 starsGoing Bananas January 5, 2014Format: DVDVerified Purchase I watched "Turner & Hootch" again, a while back. Remember the scene where Tom Hanks and the dog are on a stakeout and Tom tries to explain the old kids' show "Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp"? That scene got me thinking. My brother and I used to watch that goofy show every Saturday. Never missed it. So, I ordered the series, all excited! I watched the first episode with my husband. Isn't it strange how our minds were wired when we were little? It is the dumbest show ever made! Sky King was wonderful compared to this. However, my memories are still very fond. Shared it with some of the grandkids and they were in hysterics! I am truly happy kids ARE. wired differently than us big people! I think I am falling in love with Lance, again. Just for different reasons. I gave this a five-star rating. I think it deserves it! 8 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse Dennis 5.0 out of 5 starsThe Missing Link in 60's Culture. Never to be done again. Amazingly funny. April 23, 2016Format: DVDVerified Purchase I bought this since I loved the series. Nobody would actually buy this if they never saw the series, would they?
Monkeys are funny.
Chimps are actually not monkeys...
Great apes include chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans, bonobos and humans. There are several differences between great apes and monkeys. Great apes don't have tails, while most monkeys do. Apes generally have larger bodies and bigger brains than monkeys.
However, this show is hilarious, since it's a goof on the SPY CRAZY of the 60's ... set off by Bond, James Bond.
And Get Smart. And in the case of Lancelot Link... The Man from Uncle.
I suppose the episodes might be on YouTube. If so, and you don't know, check it out. The show is really amazingly well done, and now, I guess, in this day of declining chimp and ape population in the wild (DUE TO THE CRAZY APE, HUMANS) ... this kinda show will never be done again. 2 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse This Old Man VINE VOICE 4.0 out of 5 starsFinally a good copy July 26, 2012Format: DVDVerified Purchase I was one of the people who bought the first release.It was not in very good shape as far as quality.The episodes were just not good at all but i wanted to see it again so i bought it.This one i will buy and use the other for coasters most likely.I sure hope this one is better.Its a funny show.Animal rights folks will most likely complain about it but im sure the monkeys were treated well(at least i hope so).If i find out other i will not keep it.

Update---The prints are very nice in the set.It was worth every penny.I watched the whole thing and there was lots of info about how they made it and the chimps used.They even showed the real Lancelot Link at the wildlife waystation i think.I guess chimps live long.He is much bigger than he was on the show.Anyone that remembers the show will be happy with their purchase. 5 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse Jimmy 5.0 out of 5 starsClassic! June 2, 2012Format: DVDVerified Purchase It's about time this classic series recieved a proper release! I was just a kid when Lancelot Link Secret Chimp origially aired, and never missed an episode! I loved it then and never forgot this show! It's as funny now as it was then.
I preordered this set as soon as i saw it announced and couldn't wait to see it again. All episodes are present along with a great bonus disc. I started watching the shows as soon as i recieved it, and just finshed watching the entire set! Hats off for a great job, and for an intesting bonus disc!
HIGHLY RECOMMEND! GREAT SHOW!!! Television will never be the same! 9 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse Thomas E. Hudson 5.0 out of 5 starsHey! What can you say? January 3, 2013Format: DVDVerified Purchase Given the premise of taking chimpanzees, dressing them up, and having them "act" out scripts that are like junior Man From Uncle episodes seems almost crazy today, and would be done in exceedingly poor animation, but this is a bit of history... and it works!

I have fond memories of watching Lancelot, Mata Hari and Commander Darwin back when I was in high school. Like many things I was a little nervous about how things might hold up in reality vs. memory, but I can still say that I enjoy these shows.

Cheesy? You bet!

Silly? Make mine a double!

Anyone over about 50 should have a great time watching these (in small doses) and kids of today from about 3-8 ought to have a really fun time with them. 2 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse Relombardo 3.0 out of 5 starsBought this to share my memories with my 3 & ... October 2, 2017Format: DVDVerified Purchase Bought this to share my memories with my 3 & 5 year old grandsons. Initially, they found it entertaining. I came to realize that the story lines are on the complex side. The boys lost interest.

I am struggling with buying this dvd in the first place. Chimpanzees being forced to dress up and act. Not the least humane. Helpful Comment Report abuse S. M. H. 5.0 out of 5 starsA unique Saturday morning show July 1, 2012Format: DVDVerified Purchase In 1970, ABC aired a different type of show, starring CHIMPANZEES!! (not one human was seen). Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp was a spy spoof (influenced by James Bond, Get Smart, and a little Humphrey Bogart, since Lance sounded like him). This originally aired as an hour long series (not as the half hour versions seen on Nickelodeon and TV Land years back.) This series aired at the same time as CBS' Sabrina and The Groovie Goolies (same time slot at 9am). I didn't catch this show until TV Land aired it as part of their Super Retrovision Saturdaze line-up in 1999. Keep in mind, this show aired 6 years before I was born, so I couldn't catch it in it's glory.

As for this series, It's funny and charming at the same time. I'm not finished with it yet, but I'm glad I've brought it. What you get is ALL 17 eps, with excellent bonus features. (Do away with the Image Entertainment copies from 2006. This set is better). I've also discovered Worldvision Enterprises originally distributed this series for syndication (both versions of the logos appear). And yes, these are the half hour vesions you'll watch.

BTW: Veteran cartoon writer, Tom Dagenias was one of the show's writers.

To the creators, thank you for making this series so hilarious for the fans. Although it's cheesy by today's standards, overlook it. You'll have a blast watching this. Thank you, Film Chest Media. Helpful Comment Report abuse See all 120 reviews Write a customer review
