This is an extremely heart-warming post for me because I have such fond memories of watching the original Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom Sunday Nights starring the wonderful gentle man, Marlin Perkins.
I remember being at my grandparents with the family on Sunday evenings and we would all watch Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, 60 Minutes and The Lawrence Welk Show. Wunnerful, Wunnerful! That was a Bobby and a Suzy, doing the polka-dot-polka!
The recent photo below is of one of the world's best known Naturalists, Jim Fowler who was Marlin Perkins co-host and later became the host of Emmy Award Winning, Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom. Jim is wearing his trademark Rolex GMT Master.

Pictured above is Peter Gros on the far left and Jim Fowler on the far right. Both were stars on the Original Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom with their host, Marlin Perkins. In the photo above they are shooting on the very popular new Mutual of Omahas Wild Kingdom which airs on Sunday nights at 7pm.
Memories are made of this. Marlin Perkins was so cool!!!
