King Kong, the mighty ape who scaled the Empire State Building in the 1933 movie, is befriended by Professor Bond and his family in this 1966 series. The Professor, his son Bobby and daughter Susan live on the remote palm tree-dotted Mondo, a prehistoric island in the Java Sea. The fifty-foot tall primate exhibited tender indulgence for his friends, but used his colossal strength, in partnership with young Bobby, to fight injustice, prehistoric creatures and a succession of diabolical villains, who sought to control Kong for their own nefarious ends.
King Kong was produced by Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass for ABC-TV, where it debuted with a one hour prime-time special on September 6, 1966. The series was a Rankin-Bass Production with Videocraft International and also featured the adventures of Tom From T.H.U.M.B., a tiny James Bond-type who was assisted by Swinging Jack, an Oriental martial arts expert.
