Time Ape plays himself in The Doctor Zone Files. In the show he is Doctor Zone's sidekick. He was revealed to also be his brother in the end of the film The Doctor Zone Files The Movie Files.
He appears as an ape with a clock for a head, or a clock with an ape's body. In the show, although being a being that could assumedly take any form, he still takes this appearance because he was originally an ape with a clock for a head or a clock with an ape's body before his and Doctor Zone's home planet imploded and he fell into the space-time continuum. In the space-time continuum he is a trans-chronological being represented as a continuously changing blob with lots of eyes. Because normal peoples' minds cannot comprehend that form; their heads would explode by just looking at it.
