Note that in 1974, 20th Century Fox had the idea of having movie theaters show the five "Planet of the Apes" movies in a single program, and produced special movie posters, with an image of an ape from the movies pointing at you, with the tagline "GO APE!". The bottom of this poster had five boxes with the titles of the five movies. Not surprisingly, this idea did not go over well with movie theaters, because they would be selling a single ticket, and having kids sit in their theater all day long! Most of the surviving examples of the theatrical "Go Ape!" poster are found with several of the bottom boxes taped over, because the theater only showed two of the movies.

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: In addition to the theatrical release one-sheet for the five-bill, 20th Century Fox also arranged for CBS Television to show the "Apes" movies on Fridays. They printed a variation of the "Go Ape!" theatrical poster, which has the same image, but which says "PLANET OF THE APES ON CBS-TV - FRIDAYS". This "TV" version of the poster is far more rare than the regular theatrical poster (which itself is not common). Due to the success of these Friday showings of the PLANET OF THE APES movies on TV, CBS then arranged for a PLANET OF THE APES TV series which aired beginning in 1974.
