    If memory serves it was in production around 1982 or '83, meaning I was still in high school - so it's probably not as good as I remember. I may have to see if it's to be had on DVD . . . just to check the quality, of course!

    However, I don't remember it being aired in the UK.

    Golden Monkey definitely aired in the UK (although they probably showed only half the episodes, out of order) in a wave of post-Indiana Jones rip-offs (see also Bring 'Em Back Alive with Bruce Boxleitner).

    It probably *wasn't* as good as memory suggests, being a product of Donald P Bellisarius (later Magnum and Airwolf), but it starred Roddy McDowell which is always good for a touch of class.

    It also inspired Disney's TaleSpin, which was pretty much a direct rip-off (King Louie as a bar owner in TaleSpin, McDowell as Bon Chance Louie in Golden Monkey). They didn't have a one-eyed dog, though...

    I will probably start ther IC posts on Monday.

    Yeah, sorry, I let this slide. I'm still up for it, though. If anyone is still interested, post here by Wednesday (with character if you haven't already done so) and I'll get going.
