Synopsis

Bull tries to save a baby orangutan from animal-research experiments.

Storyline

Bull tries to hide a test monkey from a scientist; Dan romances an amnesiac woman.

Plot Summary

Soft-hearted Bull (Richard Moll) risks contempt of court--and by extension, his job--when he takes a liking to a baby orangutan, brought into court as evidence. Rather than allow the simian to be subjected to scientific experimentation, Bull "liberates" it from the lab doctor (Alex Henteloff) in charge. Meanwhile, Dan (John Larroquette) romances a pretty lady (Patty Freedman) who has lost her memory.
