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

Trivia

Shot mostly on the back-lot of Columbia Picture Television's Burbank Studios, The famous Raffles Hotel was built on the studio's 'New York Street'. The bar and lobby was constructed on Stage 22 and featured lamps on the tables that were used in Casablanca (1942). So called 'Annie Street', built for the at that time just completed film Annie (1982) was redressed to become the bustling main street in Singapore. Scenes that required an actual jungle as background were filmed in Hawaii and the Los Angeles Arboretum. See more »

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.
