Storyline

US adventurer Frank Buck lives in colonial Singapore. He spreads his jungle time between his compound home, the legendary Raffles hotel, where he parties with HH, the sultan of Johore, and wherever adventures take them. Many adventures ensue, often less dangerous because of the animals then on account of criminals, Nazi agent von Turgo and sleezy sycophantic Bundhi. Written by KGF Vissers

Give it a break!

I was only young when the series was shown, but I have fond memories of watching it with my dad and sister, and thinking how exciting it all was. If only TV shows today were like it, the world would be a better place.
