Space Chimps

As you can see from this image...

the Infinity has landed on a planet

in a crater filled with H20.

- It means water.

- I know what it means.

Senator, if the atmosphere is viable,

the planet could sustain life.

Maybe even an NFL expansion team.

This could prove

what we suspected all along.

We are not alone.

Just think what a mission

could do for science.

Not to mention T-shirt sales.

Political gold.

I want astronauts over there pronto.

Not gonna happen.

Too risky for humans.

We don't have a clue how the wormhole

will affect living tissue.

It could transmogrify the D.N.A.,

causing blindness.

- Heart failure.

- Most likely, death.


Comet, what are you doing?

Getting us a mission.

- We could send the chimps.

- Chimps? Chimps.

Hmm. Not humans, but not horrible.

Show me what you got.

Guys, we got a mission.

Senator, Titan, Luna and Comet

are fully prepared for the mission.

They have been training for this

their whole lives.

Training, shmaining. These chimps are boring!

They're... chimp nerds.

Uh, technically, there's no such thing

as nerds in the simian world.

I know a nerd when I see one.

- Do you think he means we're nerds?

- No, no. We're super cool.

What this mission needs is some P.R.,

some sizzle to grab the media's attention.

It needs a chimp with the right stuff.

It needs someone like... him!

A real hero, with dignity and nobility.

He's been dead for 30 years.

But he does have a grandson.


Ahh! Oh, ho-ho-ho!

Houston, no! Ooh!

Oh! Thumb pain. Aah!

- When I promised your grandpa I'd look after ya-

- Ooh! Ow!

I never thought I'd be playin' pick-up sticks

with monkey bones night after night.

What can I say?

I'm an envelope pusher.

- I can't do anything halfway.

- Yeah?

Well, you keep showboatin',
