Tales Of The Gold Monkey

Posted: April 19, 2021 in Cool stuff, TV & Movies

Never saw this show. Bought the DVD on a hunch. And yes, Tales Of The Gold Monkey (1982-1983) is pretty entertaining. They basically wanted a “Raiders Of The Lost Ark” (the first Indiana Jones film) type show on television and I think they captured the spirit pretty well. Adventures full of exotic suspense, with Nazis, trigger-happy Japanese pilots (the action takes place in the South Pacific in 1938), lost tribes, treasures and yes, even a one eyed dog (with an eyepatch) that saves the day on a regular basis. Very easy going. Very old school. Bar fights in every episode. Count me in.
