Previously Released Material

"The Definitive 50 Episode Wild Kingdom Collection contains portions of six previously released Wild Kingdom DVDs with the complete episodes from the Hunters of the Sky DVD. Good collection if this is your first Wild Kingdom DVD which is an excellent series of programs. However if you already own Wild Kingdom DVDs this collection will include episodes from previously released DVDs.

The episodes included in the Definitive 50 Episode Wild Kingdom Collection are all from previously released Wild Kingdom DVDs as follows:

The African Wild - Disks 1 and 3.
The African Wild 2 - Disk 3.
Australia's Awesome Animals - Disk 2.
Dangerous Encounters in the Wild - Disks 1 and 3.
Hunters of the Sky - Disks 1, 2 and 3.
Mammals of North America - Disks 1 and 3.
Wild Cats - Disks 1 and 3."
Pioneering, Quite Good.

"I literally grew up with Mutual Of Omaha's WILD KINGDOM! I have fond memories of the show. As a previous reviewer mentioned, sometimes the footage is far from perfect...one has to remember that some of these shows are well over 40 years old! Plus, I seem to remember them as always being a bit rough. Marlin Perkins was a kind, grandfatherly figure as host. I think people often forget that he was a bona-fide Zoologist (PhD).

As to some of the information from the shows being dated, that is true. As a previous reviewer mentioned, one has to view them in context.

The folks in their 30s,40s, and 50s are probably the best target audience for the shows, although they should appeal to a broader audience. There is a large nostalgia factor here.

As to the presentation, well....this IS a BCI release, after all. They are not always bastions of great quality DVD releases. Actually, they didn't do a bad job. I picked this one up at a discout club for $23. Not bad for 7 double sided discs and 50-30 minute episodes.
(I also complain that the box is rather a poor touch and there is very little documentation included....not even production dates)."
Great memories of childhood

"This is definitely geared for purchasers who grew up with Wild Kingdom. My husband and I are 37yrs old and have fond memories of the show. We bought it for our 4.5yr old WHO IS ADDICTED to it. We have to restrict his viewing time.

I think it was definitely worth the $$. It is interesting to watch and covers a broad range of animals. the quality is not the greatest but my son hasn't noticed. As one viewer mentioned this is footage from the 60-70's.
I would far rather watch this with my son that cartoons."
