"I found you Kunte Kinte"
6 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't believe you people remember all the detail about this show. As a child, this was also one of my favorites. I was in the 7th grade when it was on the air. I loved it but don't remember any of the particular episodes. "The Americans" was also one of my favorites. The only episode I can remember of that show was one with Dick York (later in Bewitched) in it. It is a sad commentary on the state of our culture that this show was not well viewed and is considered "obscure". For awhile I wondered whether it was just a dream or this show really existed. This is the first 50s/60s site I have found that has any info. about it.

The theme music is still very clear to me. It had a very patriotic feel to it. Too bad you can't whistle via email.

I could give my opinion about why this show is considered obscure but it would not be considered politically correct today. However, next time you read a High School History text notice the amount of text devoted to the "McCarthy" era and the amount of text devoted to George Washington. McCarthy wins by a landslide. No further comment is necessary.
