Billie Lou Watt,
When I was a very little boy, there were only three or four TV stations. I was too young to "get" most of the programming, so my mom would sit on the floor next to me and try to explain what was going on. I'd be okay for a while but would soon get confused. I'd look up at her questioningly and she'd interpret what was happening in "kiddie" terms I could grasp.
In 1972 I enrolled in kindergarten and soon discovered "Kimba" was on right about the time I walked home. I loved it. The theme song was great and Kimba was nice without being sappy. All his animal friends were sincere and likable too. From then on, I didn't walk home from school, I ran so as not to miss any more than I had to (it came on at 3:30, just when school let out).
Of course, just as it became part of my daily routine...I suppose they'd call it "appointment" TV nowadays...the show was pulled and never returned. Still, I never forgot this was the first TV series I loved and watched regularly. I hope you enjoy it, too.
