Bernie Kopell, you know him from The Love Boat and as voice of Baron Von Butcher in Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp joins Jon and Talkin' Pets to discuss the classic TV series now on DVD.
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.
