Grape Ape – Nostalgia Cartoon
The Great Grape Ape Show was a Saturday morning cartoon that was broadcast on ABC from 1975 to 1978. The title character was a 40-foot-tall purple gorilla (voiced by Bob Holt) with the mind of a child. His catch phrase is saying his name twice (“Grape Ape, Grape Ape”) after anything anyone says, usually as a form of agreement or acknowledgement of what was said.
Here is part the show, The All American Ape
Thirty-two 10-minute installments of Grape Ape were made; two were aired per 30-minute episode. Grape Ape also appeared as a member of “The Yogi Yahooeys” team on Scooby’s All-Star Laff-A-Lympics and Scooby’s All-Stars from 1977 to 1979.
