Veterinarian Dr. Tracy (Marshall Thompson), his daughter Paula (Cheryl Miller), and staff run the (fictional) Wameru Study Centre for Animal Behaviour in East Africa. The show was based on the movie, “Clarence the Cross-Eyed Lion” from 1965. Per Wikipedia, The concept was developed by producer Ivan Tors, inspired by the work of Dr. Antonie Marinus Harthoorn and his wife Sue at their animal orphanage in Nairobi.Dr. Harthoorn was a tireless campaigner for animal rights.” Most of the tv show was shot in Africa, U.S.A.



Africa, Toto, 1981



I hear the drums echoin' tonight
She hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She's coming in, twelve-thirty flight
Moonlight wings reflect the stars that guide me toward salvation
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turns to me as if to say
Hurry boy it's waiting there for you


(Clarence & Judy the chimp)

It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing but a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had



The wild dogs cry out in the night
As the grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seem to cure what's deep inside
Frightened of this thing that I've become



It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing but a hundred man or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had.
