Welcome to the Planet of the Apes Tribute Organization’s website.  Officers at the moment are:

  • Chris M, president (recently abdicated; we are entertaining nominees)
  • Rob D, president of vice
  • Lori H H, treasurer
  • The Reverend Kathy B, queen of everything and director of morale and recreation
  • Moses the Smoking Monkey, mascot
  • Big Wheel, ambassador-at-large (emeritus)
  • Uisgea, minister of propaganda

The criterion for membership in the organization is simple.  Potential members must have endured most or all of a Planet of the Apes marathon (preferably at a downtown El Paso movie theater and without adult supervision). All you need is the desire to join.  If you’d like to be an officer, feel free to pick your own job title.

If you would like to join, support, or nominate someone for inclusion in the organization, leave a comment for the site administrator and someone from our home office (or perhaps the Chinese laundry next door) will reply in a swift and polite way.

P.O.T.A.T.O. traffics in the original movie series, not made-for-TV spin-offs, remakes, or racy ripoffs (such as Planet of the Dates and Babes in Kongland).

Pleasant info:

You can now have your own Blu-Ray marathon.  Check out this Gizmodo link, buy some bananas, and go to town:  http://gizmodo.com/5032393/planet-of-the-apes-40+year-evolution-blu+ray-set-comes-out-nov-4

Public marathons in cheap theaters are infinitely preferable, but it’s nice to know that you can get your POTA marathon fix in your own house whenever you need to.
