Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp

After a Cowboys and Indians themed 21st tonight, i travelled home on the dark and dangerous road that is the Bucketts Way. It was on this trip that i made a little discovery. I don't know how to feel about this particular discovery, but I'll share it all the same.

Triple J were playing their crappy saturday night weird stuff, and my ipod battery was run right down. So i scanned the radio for anything to listen to. After bypassing a classical station or two, and a few pop dj's were rejected, i came across a station for the visually impaired. There were mostly interviews on people who help those with a disabilty - but there was one fellow who caught my attention. He spoke of an old television show from the 70's called Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp.

He was adamant that he was the only one who remembered this show, and seemed quite proud of it. I googled it when i got home and found out more about it.

Imagine a crime show, with secret agents, and bad guys and missions - kind of like Get Smart... then make all the characters chimpanzees. Throw in a dubbing track, and a Chimp band, and add some puns and you've got Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp.

I don't know whether to feel amused or abused? Those poor chimps.
