''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]].

* {{Catchphrase}}: ''I don't care!''.

to:

* {{Catchphrase}}: ''I Averted with Johnny's "I don't care!''.care!" line. He only says it once, but in such an obnoxiously condescending way that the guys at ''Mystery Science Theater 3000'' turned it into a RunningGag. People introduced to this film via ''MST3K'' end up thinking Johnny says this far more often than he actually does.



* TheLoad: Johnny.

to:

* TheLoad: Johnny. As if to unintentionally {{lampshade|Hanging}} it, the dub has him respond to a warning about heading into danger [[TooDumbToLive with this line]]:
-->'''Johnny:''' "I don't care!"
