    Although 40 years have passed between seeing this on Saturday morning TV and just recently rewatching it on the DVD set, I found this was one of the cartoons which I remembered almost perfectly. Something about the Ape Army and its mad scientist controller (those bongo drums!) just stuck in my mind through all those decades when other stories -- even those with Brainiac or Luthor -- fell by the wayside. What episodes of the current DC cartoons will kids of today remember -- to their surprise -- in the year 2047? (By this evidence, not the ones we probably expect them to!)
