In 1966, “King Kong” made his debut as a cartoon character with his own series on ABC-TV. The world’s favorite giant ape was leased from RKO Properties by producer William J.

While they are thrilled at their discovery of the “8th Wonder of the World,” they soon learn the true value of Kong’s friendship as he defends them from dinosaurs, prehistoric monsters, and even con men!
