    Jim Fowler - Wild Kingdom host.

    I guess he really wasn't an actor. Long time Tonight Show guest and co-cost of the long running Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom.

    You are correct. He was a Zoologist. When I was a child, I watched Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom every Sunday morning that came. I wonder if it's as good now as it was to me then.

    That show was a big part of my childhood. I rarely missed an episode. Jim and Marlin Perkins were like spending time with friends, they were great on that show.
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    Yep - I loved that show.
    I was more of a Marlin Perkins fan though.

    RIP, Jim.

    Jim did all the heavy lifting while Marlin supervised. The times Jim would do the Tonight Show, the Johnny Carson era, were hilarious. Johnny liked animals, but Jim would push him, close to or past, his comfort point. Fond childhood memories. I bet he had quite the crowd waiting for him on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. RIP.

    So true, I remember Johnny Carson did a lot of jokes
    about Jim and how Marlin was always safe.

    Yep. Marlin was just an interview. Jim was the Circus. I wonder how many times Johnny got pooped on?
