Yep. I am old.

Mutual of Omaha is people you can count on when the going is rough.
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 12:59:41 PM EST
That and ABC's Wide World of Sports.
My grandpa used to come over every Sunday night for dinner. We'd watch WWS, Wild Kingdom, then have dinner. Then Disney and the grand finale', The Ed Sullivan Show, then bed.

Thanks for that reminder of my childhood. I didn't have much idea what Mutual of Omaha was, but I never missed that show.

We used to watch the Sunday Disney movie with a huge bowl of popcorn, and after that was over there was usually a James Bond movie on after that we'd watch too.

It was the ABC Sunday Night Movie that came on after, they always had something good on.

I know you are not going to believe me,but the first show I thought of after reading the title was Wild Kingdom..We used to watch it as a family when i was a little kid,parents were still married..Good times.

Oh.. Yes.. The good old days.. I remember that. My mom, dad, brother and I cooked a big bowl of popcorn and watch that and then Disney...

Perkins didn't get to be that old by being a fool.

"Jim, you go wrestle that pissed-off lion while I sit in the truck with the film crew and do color commentary."

Jim was a manly sumbitch though.

I remember those shows too. I can still see my dad watching Bonanza and guffawing like crazy when Hoss would kick the shit out of some bad guy. I miss my dad. A lot. And I'm 66 years old.

I remember going to the theater with him and my three brothers to watch Blazing Saddles. I don't think I ever heard my dad laugh so hard in his life or have such a good time with us.

Sorry for the hijack.

I was so young when that was on. I remember watching the Disney show, too.

I didn't understand what "Mutual of Omaha's" was.

Marlon: "Let's watch as Jim wrestles this giant snake."


Jim: "Son of a..."
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 1:23:28 PM EST
" Jim is going to wrestle the Python while i sit in the safety of the helicopter... Watch those fangs Jim.."
I used to watch it every week. I do remember one episode where a big snake had Marlon down and in it's coils.
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 1:24:48 PM EST
I remember playing Flamingos vs. Maribou Storks at recess monday afternoon, because the strife between the two was featured on Wild Kingdom the evening before. I was in the third grad.

Remember when Disney would have those movies with the animals getting into adventures? I can hear the narrator in my head as I type. It was the same narrator for each movie.

As soon as I read the title, I thought of Marlin Perkins. Came on right before Disney on NBC.

Us kids would get to watch it if we were good.

Wow. That just whisked me back to my childhood! I used to absolutely love watching Marlin watching Jim wrestling the world's deadly animals. What a fantastic show––thanks for the trip down Memory Lane!
