The children Johnny (Masaaki Kaji) and Caroline (Hiroko Saito) travel to visit the laboratory of Johnny's uncle. There they are given a tour by young female lab assistant Catherine (Reiko Tokunaga) and get to see the lab's cryogenic chambers. Unfortunately a severe earthquake strikes. Catherine, Caroline, and Johnny take shelter in the nearest available cryogenic chambers, which then activate when rock falls on the on switch. They awaken in another time populated by a militaristic ape society, the outward appearance of which is similar to 20th Century Earth; the apes drive 20th century automobiles such as Buicks and Jeeps, carry M1 Carbine rifles, and wear Civil War era and 1970's clothing.

The plot then turns into a cat-and-mouse game. After escaping the apes, the protagonists are pursued into a booby-trap laden jungle area known as "Green Mountain.". A human in hiding, Godo (Tetsuya Ushio), helps them escape from the apes. A hermit, Godo knows little about his own background or other humans in the world, but is well-known to the apes as a fearsome warrior.

''Time of the Apes'' was cobbled together from bits and pieces of a 1974 Japanese [[LiveActionTVTropes TV series]] from ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'' creators Creator/TsuburayaProductions -- ''SF Drama: Saru no Gundan'' (SFドラマ 猿の軍団, "Army of Apes: A Sci-Fi Drama). The series ran for 26 episodes and did not meet with much enthusiasm, not even from its "home crowd" in Japan. In 1987, enter Sandy Frank: buyer, producer, and importer of all manner of Japanese crap cinema. Sandy purchases the 26 episodes, gets rid of all but 4 or 5 of them, and [[CompilationMovie splices bits and pieces from these remaining episodes into a film. Kind of like a]] [[JustForPun Sandy Frankenstein monster]] [[CompilationMovie pieced together from garage sale leftovers.]] This film [[FollowTheLeader capitalized]] on the ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'' series. Though obviously (sometimes ''painfully'') Japanese, the dubbed version gives the characters [[CulturalTranslation English names]].
