Yes that was a naughty simian and I ought to know since I was a kid extra for the pilot. The shot I got to be in was at a miniature golf course around Los Angeles. It was a long shoot on a hot day and trying to get the chimp to do his thing was frustrating. You gotta sympathize with the cast and crew. I remember the chimp wore black briefs.I guess this was for the censors or hygiene.Anyway they weren't visible on film. We all thought it was going to be great since Ted Bessell was part of the cast, but alas,this was not to be. What a stinker. The show just wasn't funny.I remember feeling uncomfortable just watching it.What was really grating on the nerves in those days was the canned laughter for every unfunny, meant to be funny, moment. Thank goodness this one flopped!
