When I was growing up in Spain, this was a must see for kids. I went to an all girl school, and we would recreate the episodes during our recess. I have never seen the mini series again, as I think it would tarnish the wonderful memories it holds. I always remember the TV promos: "Kabir Bedi, Sandokan" which served to permanently bond the names together. To this day to think of one is to think of the other. The "Tigre de Bengala" must have been our first collective crush, as we always commented on how handsome and valiant he was. Even the nuns would watch the series and comment on the adventures. It brings back fond childhood memories.
