KING KONG!! The Original 1966 TV-Cartoon LP!
DADDYKIN HAD THIS TO SAY ABOUT HIS LP SHARE:
"Hi. In 1966, "King Kong" made his debut as a cartoon character with his own series on ABC-TV. The world's favorite giant ape was leased from RKO Properties by producer William J. Keenan and animators Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass. Set on faraway Mondo Island (no relation!), Kong is befriended by the Bond family. Young Bobby (pictured on the album cover) discovers Kong and introduces him to his father, Professor Bond and his sister Susan. While they are thrilled at their discovery of the "8th Wonder of the World," they soon learn the true value of Kong's friendship as he defends them from dinosaurs, prehistoric monsters, and even con men! While this cartoon will never win any awards for originality or animation, I still get excited when I hear the marching theme song- "King Kong, you know the name of King Kong; King Kong, you know the fame of King Kong; King Kong, 10 times as big as a man!" Thanks to the popularity of Peter Jackson's recent "Kong" movie, this extremely rare cartoon series is now available on DVD. Grab it while you can, as this kind of nostalgia marketing is meant to cash in on a current fad and rarely stays in print for long. The album that I'm sharing with you was released on Epic Records in 1966. It features the great theme song twice as it opens and closes the audio of four TV episodes. The stories are narrated by Bob McFadden and feature the original voice cast of Carl Banas, Susan Conway, John Drainie, Billie Richards, Alf Scopp, and Paul Soles. The LP art is included in the folder with other pics from the cartoon. Enjoy! TRACK LISTING: 01. KING KONG THEME/EPISODE ONE-DOCTOR WHO, 02. EPISODE 2-THE TREASURE TRAP, 03. EPISODE 3-UNDER THE VOLCANO, 04. EPISODE 4-THE AFRICAN BEES/KING KONG THEME (CLOSING)."
