Return to the Planet of the Apes

Three astronauts, Bill, Jeff and Judy, begin a long trek through harsh conditions, after crash-landing on what seems a desolate planet, to find food and water they'll need to survive until they're rescued or can find a way home. The only problem is the planet is actually inhabited by intelligent Apes.

    Director Doug Wildey ran up against NBC's "Emulative Clause," which stated that something from an animated series needed to be eliminated if a six year old child could physically emulate what he sees on the cartoon. This meant he could not equip apes with machine guns or knives or clubs or pistols or hand grenades, and that while the apes could wear rifles, they could not use them. Finally, Wildey asked if it would be okay to use Howitzers. The network agreed that they could not think of a way a six year old could operate a Howitzer so Wildey loaded the series with the weapon.
