    An orphaned baby elephant? A lion with a brain tumor? Call Dr. Marsh Tracy! This lovingly remembered show from executive producer Ivan Tors (Sea Hunt, Flipper, Gentle Ben) stars Marshall Thompson as a dedicated veterinarian who runs an animal research center in Africa with the help of his daughter, two courageous aides, a mischievous chimp and a cross-eyed lion named Clarence. Action, laughs and breathtaking encounters with exotic animals highlight the 18 Episodes of the Complete Season One as Tracy and his crew handle everything from poachers to diamond thieves to a raging fire that threatens the nearby game preserve. "Daktari" means "doctor" in Swahili, but for viewers it means uplifting family fun!
The classic 1966 television series (which is not to be confused with the '62 John Wayne film Hatari!, of course) comes to DVD beginning TODAY, November 15th, from the Warner Archive Collection with Daktari - The Complete 1st Season (there were four total). This manufactured-on-demand (MOD) set has 18 episodes (approx. 900 minutes) for $44.95 SRP:
  1. The Elephant Thieves
  2. Predator Of Wameru
  3. The Killer Lion
  4. Adventure Of The Lion Cubs
  5. Trail Of The Cheetah
  6. Leopards Of Mdala Gorge
  7. The Diamond Smugglers
  8. The Chimp Who Went Ape
  9. The Killer Dog
  10. Return Of The Killer, Part 1
  11. Return Of The Killer, Part 2
  12. The Maneater Of Wameru
  13. Crisis At The Compound
  14. The Hostages
  15. Judy And The Hyena
  16. Wall Of Flames, Part 1
  17. Wall Of Flames, Part 2
  18. Judy And The Gunrunners
This is currently available exclusively at the studio's WBshop online store (see button link just below), so it only ships to U.S. addresses, but the title is expected to become available through Amazon's CreateSpace program in the near future (so global customers would be able to purchase it that way). Here's a high-res 3D look at the packaging:
