“Dr. Jonathan Chase is a wealthy, young, and handsome man with the brightest of futures with a very dark past. From Africa’s deepest recesses, to the rarest peaks of Tibet, heir to his father’s legacy, and the world’s darkest mysteries is Jonathan Chase, master of the secrets that divide man from animal, animal from man, Manimal.”
As awful as this 8 episode show was, I still have fond memories of watching it when I was 8 years old back in 1983.
I've always wondered why with practically every series it seems like is coming out on DVD, that someone hasn't packaged this into a DVD set of some sort. It only ran for 8 episodes before getting unceramoniously canned. I think that the creator of this show had another series called Automan running at the same time that ran for about the same # of episodes.
What was funny about the show is that our intrepid hero was supposed to be able to transform into any animal yet the only ones that they actually showed him transforming into was a black panther or a hawk. I think he transformed into some other stuff but I don't think they showed the transformation proabably due to budget constraints.
Anyone else remember this show and if so what are your memories of it?
