The Genius That Was The Chimp Channel

"The National Institutes of Health [last month] suspended all new grants for biomedical and behavioral research on chimpanzees and accepted the first uniform criteria for assessing the necessity of such research," the New York Times reported recently. "Those guidelines require that the research be necessary for human health, and that there be no other way to accomplish it."

For some reason we thought this gave us a good excuse to replay highlights from the late, lamented Chimp Channel.

1. Promo 1.



2. Promo 2.


3. Star Wars.


4. Jeopardy.


See also: "CareerBuilder is doubling down on the chimps, according to Forbes," AdAge reports. "This, despite increasing outcries from animal-rights groups and pledges from other marketers and many ad agencies not to use live apes in advertising."


And from the vault:

Beat the Chimp.


And, of course, Lancelot Link.


Comments welcome.
