    I hope there are others like this. I'd love to see Dr. Zaius pop a wheelie or Zira jump a dozen trash cans.

    This was probably from the Italian version of Planet of the Apes.

    This is a glorious toy. It somehow manages to be both cool and nonsensical.

    This looks like a fun toy!
    Thinking of vehicles- I think the DC Comics' comic book, "Secret Origins", in the 1990s, said:

    In the 1970s, there were three things that comics fans liked on the front covers of their comic books. they are: Fire, Jeeps, and [apes and monkeys]. Who knew? 😀

    Oh , the possibilities are endless and could even have a tie in with a 70's Marvel Comics Production of Marvel Team Up : Evel Knievel meets Planet of the Apes ( or just Galen and his stunt cycle ) . What a match , :" The Madman and the Monkey " !
