The OFFICIAL Lancelot Link Coming in May
By Joe Boo
I wanted to write an early review for the NEW Lancelot Link Secret Chimp 17 episode Complete Series set coming in May 2012. There are so many bad reviews here for the unofficial release, that I had to post something. I own the unofficial release and it has gone from $20 to $200, which I think needs to come down now that the official release will be out soon. I found a product preview ad from Film Chest Inc. on Youtube and I have to say that it looks amazing. All of the complete 17 episodes have been restored from the original ABC masters and they look incredible. The set will include the documentary film "I created Lancelot Link", which came out in 1998, which I purchased, on VHS. It never found it's way to DVD and now it's going to be included in this set. The video in the preview looks so clear that it seems as if it were made yesterday. The DVD also contains a visit to see the Lancelot link, alive and well, at the Wildlife Way Station. I can't wait until it arrives in May
If you would like to see the advertisement from Film Chest, just search on Youtube for "Lancelot link film chest" It is worth watching and you will not be disappointed.
I have already purchased my copy from Amazon and I can't wait....

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!

The Missing Link in 60's Culture. Never to be done again. Amazingly funny.
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.
