''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 Frankenstein monster pieced together from garage sale leftovers.]] This film [[FollowTheLeader capitalized]] on the ''PlanetOfTheApes'' series. Though obviously (sometimes ''painfully'') Japanese, the dubbed version gives the characters [[CulturalTranslation English names]].
