Here are some panels I drew showing the chimps arrival and departure from the planet Zeta.
ARRIVAL: This “was” my favorite scene in the whole movie. The wormhole was going to be mix of Pink elephants and some of my favorite abstract animators: Jordon Belson, Oscar Fischinger, Len Lye and Norm Mclaren. It was going to be a wonderful departure from the normal screensaver look for these things. Alas… it never came to be.
( p.s. sorry didn’t have time to write up the text on this one.)
DEPARTURE: Once again the script didn’t explain how the chimps actually got into space so we the board team had to make it up. We invented a volcano to parallel Hams circus cannon act and reverse engineered it into the rest of the story.
