By the way, Charlton Heston agreed to make a cameo (as an ape) in the new Apes movie the summer of 2001. It is not called a remake because the script is based on the original book, not the 1967 script.
In the tv series Roddy McDowall played ape Galen in the distant future when apes rule. Two more astronauts, played by Ron Harper & James Naughton, have crash-landed 1000 years in the future and live a life of fugitives with Galen as their only trusted friend. Zaius (Booth Colman) is an orangutang, one of the ruling elite, while Urko (Star Trek's Mark Lenard) is one of the brutal gorillas in the military class. The series started 13 September 1974 and was cancelled the same year after the 27 December episode, though the few unaired episodes were seen in Britain, where critics loved it.
Galen befriends the two astronauts and tries to help them in their flight from Urko. In the tv-series, Zaius is not exactly a friend, but spends much of his time trying to reign in Urko's excesses. Roddy and the other "apes" had to come in early each day for 3 and a half hours of makeup. The series aired in Britain starting in October 1974, to great success, but only pulled in 27% of the ratings in America - not enough to justify it's expensive special effects (the CBS network required 30% for renewal at the time). The first season story arc was 24 episodes, but only 14 were actually filmed so the story ended in mid-air and only seen in its entirety in Britain (and in the US on the SciFi Channel).
It is not being rerun anywhere as far as I know and none of the episodes are available on video.
