Planet of the Apes: He can sing
First of all, good clips of "The Simpsons" are hard to come by. I know the dialogue int he above clip is in Spanish, but the song is still in English and that's really what counts.
What's important here is that I, as you might be yourself, am getting geared up for "Rise of the Planets of the Apes," set to open in theaters Friday. This is as good a time as any to ask why, with all the sequels, TV shows, remakes, lunchboxes, and action figures, has no one done a full-scale "Planet of the Apes" musical? I'm serious. They made "The Lion King" come to life on Broadway, why can't they do apes? They could it with puppets, like "Avenue Q" for all I care. In those infamous advertising words, just do it.
We'll talk more about "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" and its predecessors as the week continues, leading up to the release of the new film. I hope you are as excited as I am.
