If Ramar find "Tiger" Ramar friend. If Ramar not find "Tiger" Ramar no friend; Must Die!
28 June 2008 | by (brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

(Some Spoilers) The last and probably the most popular as well as most talked about of the "Ramar of the Jungle" episodes involves two 500 pound Bengal Tigers who escaped from their cages in the port city of Durbin South Africa. The two jungle cats make their way up the East African coast as they leave a trail of death and destruction along the way.

Dr. Tom Reynolds, Jon Hall, known as "Ramar" the "White Medicine Man" by the local natives is out with his friend and associate Botanist Professor Howard Ogdon,Ray Montgomery, checking for local and extremely rare Gamboa plants in the area. It's the elusive Gamboa that both Dr. Reynolds and Prof. Ogdon feel is the key to the restoration of dying and degenerating cells. If their theory is proved right the sap of the Gamboa will retard the aging process in both humans and animals.

Everything is put on hold, in the future of Gamboa research, when Dr. Reynolds and Prof. Ogdon run into famous wild animal hunter and trapper Jack O'Malley, Pat Moriaity. O"Malley is on the trail of the two rampaging tigers whom he was shipping back to the states when they escaped from their cages back in Durbin.

Causing a white, or striped, panic among the native population the tigers terrorize the county side attacking, among the indigenous wildlife living there, and killing a member of the local Maasai Tribe as he was out in the brush hunting game. Feeling that it's Ramar, or Dr, Reynolds, who's causing all this, as the tribe's Witch Doctor Jahuga(Phil Thomas) calls it, Black Magic a death Voodoo doll is sent to his jungle hospital/laboratory at the Cooper Crown trading post. Insead of Dr. Reynolds, whom it was meant for, handling the doll Prof, Ogdon does. This causes Prof. Ogdon to collapses and almost die from blood poisoning who pricked his finger on one of the Voodoo dolls poisonous thorns.

With the tigers tearing up the jungle landscape Dr. Reynolds is now on the hot seat for, in Witch Doctor's Jahuga's opinion, bringing the killer cats-through Black Magic-into their homeland. Dr. Reynolds has to either kill or bring the tigers back alive to show Jahuga and his boss Chief Gonowa, Felix Nelson, that their's nothing magical supernatural or mystical about them.

It turns out that the African jungle, in the wild and dangerous creatures that inhabitant it, did the job of proving the tigers to be nothing special or supernatural in doing the job, of finishing off he big cats, that Dr. Reynolds and the reluctant-who didn't want to shot and kill his prized tigers- Jack O'Malley didn't.

The two amazing and heart-stopping scenes of the tigers having it out with a charging bull water buffalo and monster 30 foot reticulated python, both animals indigenous like the tigers to Asia not Africa, was filmed by the world famous animal hunter and trapper Frank Buck of "Bring back Alive" fame.

In fact the tigers shown to be killed, in this "Ramar of the Jungle" episode, by the buffalo and python actually survived. The tiger taking on the water buffalo looked as if he hadn't eaten in days in him not being quite up to the task at hand. The hungry and emaciated looking big cat looked as if he only mixed it up with the buffalo out of desperation, and hunger, more then anything else. Battered and beaten the tiger slinks away into the jungle brush and out of the range of the water buffalo's deadly and almost five foot across horns before he could finish him off. As for the tiger python confrontation it was actually the big snake who called it quits after the tiger broke it's vice-like grip, twice not once, with the fight ending up in a draw.

P.S You can see as the tiger python struggle for survival came to an end the big snake uncurling its deadly coils as the tiger, who at one point looked like he just about had it, bites into it's thick hide causing the python to cry uncle and make a hasty retreat!
