This early 1970s series was basically Get Smart with Chimpanzees.

Lance Link and his partner, Mata Hairi, are agents of A.P.E. (the Agency to Prevent Evil), led by Commader Darwin. They oppose the sinister plans of CHUMP, whose members include Baron Von Butcher and his chaffeur Creto, the Dragon Woman and her assistant Wang Fu, Mad Scientist Dr. Strangemind, evil sheik Ali Assa Seen and the Duchess.

Lance and Mata are also part of a rock group called the Evolution Revolution.

This series contains examples of:

  • Dragon Lady: Dragon Woman
  • Everything's Better with Monkeys
  • Fake Band: Lancelot Link and the Evolution Revolution
  • Fun with Acronyms: A.P.E. is the Agency to Prevent Evil; C.H.U.M.P. is the Criminal Headquarters for Underworld Master Plan.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Baron Von Butcher is Siegfried![1]
  • Punny Name: The Evolution Revolution segments were introduced by "Ed Simian".
    • There's also Lance's partner Mata "Hairi".[2]
    • Lance and Mata's boss is named "Darwin"...
    • Von Butcher's chauffeur is named "Creto" supposedly a pun on "cretin".
    • One of CHUMP's agents is the middle eastern themed "Ali Assa Seen". See what they did there?...
    • Another CHUMP agent is named "Dr. Strangemind".


  1. Indeed, he based his portrayal of Baron Von Butcher on Siegfried as if he were running KAOS.
  2. Remove the "i", and you'll understand...
