Welcome to the Satellite of Love, the orbiting home of regular guy hosts Joel Robinson and Mike Nelson, along with their robotic companions: Crow T. Robot, Tom Servo and Gypsy.

306. Time of the Apes
Sandy Frank Sandy Frank He’s the source of all our pain...So begins the legendary anthem performed by Joel, Servo and Crow that elevated Mr. Frank — the producer of the English-language adaptation of Time Of The Apes — to almost mythical antihero status among MSTies. Adapted (i.e., shredded and stitched into incoherence) from the 1974 Japanese series Saru No Gundan, Time Of The Apes follows the travails of a scientist and two small children who are accidentally frozen and thaw into a future ruled by apes. The plot may sound familiar, but the riffs are absolutely unique.
