Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom (1963-1988)
Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom
Adventure / Documentary / Educational / Family
Cast: Marlin Perkins, Jim Fowler, Stan Brock
Marlin Perkins was a zoologist with a vision. He wanted to share his love of animals, bringing them in their natural habitats into our living room to educate us. And that’s what this program did. Each week we were treated to scenes of different species, from whales and sharks in the depths of the oceans to elephants and apes at the tops of the mountains and big cats in the jungles. The show educated and very effectively made us more conscious of ecological and environmental issues around the world. Wild Kingdom was broadcast in half-hour episodes by NBC until 1971, and then in syndication for the remainder of the original series run, and was extremely popular with viewers of all ages.
