Flashback 80’s Television–Manimal.

In December 25 years ago, 1983, what were YOU watching.. A small portion of America was  watching Manimal.

Short lived–low budget– but still memorable, it ran opposite Dallas and just couldn’t take the heat of that kind of competition.

Still, I ask you.. who didn’t absolutely drool over Simon McCorkindal as Chase or his gorgeous sidekick Melody Anderson.

Every single episode began with   the deep voice of William Conrad, reciting his narration..
“Dr. Jonathan Chase… wealthy, young, handsome. A man with the brightest of futures. A man with the darkest of pasts. From Africa’s deepest recesses, to the rarefied peaks of Tibet, heir to his father’s legacy and the world’s darkest mysteries. Jonathan Chase, master of the secrets that divide man from animal, animal from man… Manimal!
