Cadet Animals & Wildlife Daktari 1968 Daktari 1968 25 - Daktari, which means ‘Doctor’ in Swahili, was a popular children’s TV show broadcast between 1966 and 1969. It followed the adventures of vet Dr Tracy, his daughter Paula and their staff who live at an animal study centre and hospital in East Africa. The colour cards picture action from the show which also starred a cross-eyed lion called Clarence and a chimp named Judy who lived with the family. Actually the animals were the real stars of this show and there are lovely pictures of Clarence and Judy, plus a host of patients. The backs contain brief text concerning the scene, together with a different Swahili word to learn on each card, although some of the words seem a little random as whilst ‘friend’ or ‘adventure’ might be appropriate why would you need the words for ‘plate’ or ‘teapot’? This childhood favourite is sure to bring back memories. Cards size 67 x 35mm
