Not a review but just a quick heads-up for those not in the know. There are two ways of getting Daktari on DVD at present. Either on Region 1 NTSC (USA) format, or on Region 2 PAL (Europe) from Germany. Both options are available through Amazon UK. However, the German Region 2 is the release to get. This release of Daktari has all 18 episodes on it and are on proper pressed DVDs. Unlike Region 1, which is 'Media-On-Demand' (MOD), and are the awful cheaper DVD-R format. The Region 2 version has menus that are in English and they are not dubbed in German. It's all in English. I should know because I've purchased both season 1 and 2 directly from Amazon.de (Germany). The only fly in the ointment is that the synopsis and other details on the actual DVD slip-cover is in German. That didn't worry me. I would recommend purchasing the Region 2 sets directly from Amazon.de because it's usually a bit cheaper. Also, being on Region 2, they will be playable on all UK R2 DVD players. Region 1 (USA), will need a multi-region DVD player.

A spin off From the 1965 film CLARENCE THE CROSS EYED LION,, time has been kind to this well remembered TV series. The setting is Africa, Daktari is Dr Marsh Tracy (Marshall Thompson),a vet who runs the Wameru Study Centre For Animal Behaviour along with his daughter Paula (Cheryl Miller) and also two capable assistants Jack and Mike. However, possibly the two biggest stars of the show are Clarence the Lion and Judy the Chimpanzee. I think it would be difficult to resist the appeal of two characters like this, who are as much a part of the cast as the actors. It is often the combined efforts of Clarence and Judy, who save a sticky situation. Throughout the 18 episodes, there are plenty of animal rescues, and a variety of animals from big cats to birds, pass through Daktari's Hospital, but this is no mere animal Hospital drama. Daktari and co. face danger from a variety of sources, including hunters, trappers, bush fires, ruthless killers evading justice, kidnappers, diamond smugglers and gun runners. The well paced and plotted episodes of fifty minutes (there are two double episodes) blend tension and drama, good humour and plenty of animal antics and a cast of actors who are skilled at blending all these elements together. It is said that animals and actors are not a good mix, but they all fare well here, Marshall Thompson and Cheryl Miller are particularly outstanding in this respect with many moments that are both funny and moving. A few example episodes- THE KILLER LION, a tame Lioness suddenly turns vicious and attacks a local farmer. Daktari investigates the cause, but can he prevent the man who was attacked from taking his revenge on the Lioness. THE ADVENTURE OF THE LION CUBS - Plenty of animal antics in this episode.Read more ›

If you can overlook the inaccuracies, ie; south American animals & birds, Indian Elephants, then this is still an enjoyable romp in Africa. The original film shots of wildlife make up for the inaccuracies. The quality of the film is very good for it's age, and the story line are OK, bearing in mind it was made for children. All in all a good watch.

I saw this series for the first time on the national broadcast in my country as a young teen. Of course I was impressed then, and I always hoped that I could watch it again someday. ’Daktari’ was never re-broadcasted in my country although a number of series from that time were (eg ’Flipper’, ’Skippy’, ’Gunsmoke’…) I now watched it again as a man approaching 60, and it was almost as adventurous as back then, but maybe a little less thrilling. If one ignores the smaller inaccuracies here and there and the stereotyped personalities of the villains, ’Daktari’ is still worth watching today!!

This is a little dated but if you remember it you will still love it. There are a lot of wasted moments on shots of animals (some not natve to Africa!) but Judy the chimps is great - a real character - I do feel she has more sense that the adults really. There is a lot of " are you trying to tell me something" which is a bit cheesy but on the whole the stories are OK.
