Most of the younger people on AZ will be like "who?" but growing up our family watched alot of Marlin Perkins and Jim Fowler exploring and showing the natural habitat of all kinds of animals in the wild.
Great show, educated and entertained. RIP Jim and Marvin

Wild Kingdom was a fixture in my family's Sunday evening when I was a kid. Lots of
fond memories learning about all those exotic animals with Marlin and Jim.

^^^ Jim was the one who was always the guy with a python around him or a pissed off bull elephant running at him while Marlin narrated from a safe distance. Jim also I believe, was the head of the Columbus Zoo, one of the best zoos in the country. I'm surprised to learn he was 89 though! Jim.
