TV Shows - Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom

Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, was an American television show that features wildlife and nature produced from 1963 until 1988. Zoologist Marlin Perkins was the host for most of the show's history until he was forced to retire in 1985 for health reasons (he died of cancer the following year). Jim Fowler, Perkins' long-time assistant and sidekick, then became the host. Wild Kingdom can be credited for increasing ecological and environmental awareness in the United States. Its exciting footage brought the wilds of Africa, the Amazon River and other exotic locales into the living rooms of millions of Americans. It created an interest in commercial nature programming that was a precursor to cable television networks such as the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet.

1 BrewMaster; you hit the nail on the head. Even at 8 years old I thought that Jim was getting the short end of the stick. But overall it was a decent show. -- Submitted By: (Pete) on September 7, 2013, 6:21 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Marlin Perkins - "While I stay safely in the blind, Jim goes out to wrestle the Bengal Tiger" Seriously, agreed that it was a good, informative show - Never Boned. -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on March 9, 2012, 9:11 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
