1Works in this franchise with their own YMMV pages:* ''YMMV/PlanetOfTheApes1968''* ''YMMV/BeneathThePlanetOfTheApes''* ''YMMV/EscapeFromThePlanetOfTheApes''* ''YMMV/ConquestOfThePlanetOfTheApes''* ''YMMV/BattleForThePlanetOfTheApes''* ''YMMV/PlanetOfTheApes2001''* ''YMMV/RiseOfThePlanetOfTheApes''* ''YMMV/DawnOfThePlanetOfTheApes''* ''YMMV/WarForThePlanetOfTheApes''----!!The Franchise in general:* BrokenBase: The timeline debates - was it an endless loop, or did history change?* CompleteMonster: [[YMMV/DawnOfThePlanetOfTheApes Koba]]. See that page for details.* ContestedSequel: The two remakes. The original sequels too, to a lesser extent.* EnsembleDarkhorse: Creator/RicardoMontalban's character in the third and fourth films.* FanonDiscontinuity: Many deny that the sequels and/or remake exist. The reboot prequel series mostly managed to avert this, with ''Dawn'' and ''War'' in particular being seen as the only films to rival the original.* MemeticMutation:** "Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape!"** '''YOU''' '''''MANIACS!''''' '''YOU BLEW IT UP!!!'''** "A planet where APES evolved from MEN?!"** "That is/is not Ape Law!"* {{Sequelitis}}: Until ''Dawn'', no sequel had nearly as warm a reception as the original (''Rise'' coming the closest), with ''Battle'' at the bottom.* TrueArtIsAngsty: The reboot movies are far more bleaker that the originals and and have gotten the most praise.!!The Novel:* AdaptationDisplacement: The original book by Pierre Boulle.!!The TV Series:* {{Anvilicious}}: The television show. Each episode has a moral of the week, although SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped.* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: It was much more successful in Britain than at home (although it took until the '90s for the series to get a network screening - in its initial run and repeats thereafter it was shown in every Creator/{{ITV}} region except STV (Scottish Television, in Central Scotland); Creator/Channel4 gave it its first UK-wide airing in the mid-90s, and both the series ''and'' the [[CompilationMovie Compilation Movies]] regularly turn up on cable TV).* RetroactiveRecognition:** Marc Singer played Dalton in "The Gladiators".** Creator/JackieEarleHaley played Kraik in "The Legacy".** James Naughton's younger brother David Naughton played Dr. Stole in "The Surgeon".** Michael Conrad played Janor in "The Tyrant".** Sondra Locke played Amy in "The Cure".* SpecialEffectsFailure: ** In "The Good Seeds", when the chimpanzee Anto grabs a chicken, the actor Geoffrey Deuel's very human forearms can be seen. ** The blackened teeth of the actors playing apes can often be seen behind their prosthetics.----
