Daktari: Win the Complete First Season on DVD

DaktariDebuting on Tuesday nights in January 1966, Daktari ran for four seasons and 89 episodes on CBS. The show follows the work of veterinarian Doctor Marsh Tracy (Marshall Thompson) at the Wameru Study Centre for Animal Behaviour in East Africa. “Daktari” is a native word for doctor.

Doctor Tracy is joined by his daughter Paula (Cheryl Miller), American Jack Dane (Yale Summers), and a native named Mike Makula (Hari Rhodes), as they protect animals from poachers and local officials. They have two memorable pets; a cross-eyed lion named Clarence and a chimpanzee named Judy.

My daughter wanted to be a vet till she found out you had to do real surgery. Lol! Now she wants to teach. Would love this set. Watched re-runs during the early mid 70’s. My mother loved this show.

I would love to win this. My sister and I used to watch reruns of this show in the summers on the 70’s. I have been searching for it but have found very little reference to it up to this point.
