Planet of the Apes

Saturdays at 5 AM

eastern (on most MeTV stations)
After their spacecraft enters a time warp, crash-landed astronauts Colonel Alan Virdon (Ron Harper) and Major Peter J. Burke (James Naughton) awaken to find that they have traveled more than 1,000 years into the future. The good news: They’re on Earth. The bad news: Apes are now the dominate species. Together with human sympathizer Galen (Roddy McDowall), the three fugitives rove the ruins of the former United States, avoiding capture by government officials and finding adventure at every turn.
