Overview
Dr. Tom Reynolds and his associate Professor Howard Ogden travel the dark and dangerous jungles of Africa and India. Accompanied by a succession of local guides, Dr. Reynolds, respectfully known as Ramar (Great White Doctor) to the native tribesmen, becomes involved in a series of adventures which set him against an assortment of villains. Witch Doctors, smugglers, mad scientists and exotic wildlife, keep Ramar and company on their toes in every thrilling episode. "Ramar Of The Jungle" was created by and starred Jon Hall. The show was wildly successful during its short run of only 2 years, offering an exciting and sometimes violent picture of distant lands.

Zombie Terror: Howard Ogden is turned into a mindless killer zombie by a mad scientist who sends the professor out to murder Ramar. This memorable episode features Kurt Katch (The Wolfman, The Mummy's Curse) as the megalomaniacal doctor with a hut full of hand-cranked electronic ray machines.

White Man's Magic: Lost in the jungle, insane ventriloquist Conway (cowboy star Max Terhune) wanders into Ramar's camp. Believing that Conway's dummy Albert is a god, the bloodthirsty Otambe natives steal it and worship it on a shrine. When Conway risks his life to retrieve the dummy, Ramar suspects that it may be stuffed with stolen radium.

The Golden Tablet: Ramar and a beautiful woman (Anne Gwynne) are confronted by Thurston Blake, who believes that the inscription on a golden tablet he discovered will point the way to other priceless treasures. He is willing to commit murder to have the heiroglyphics translated.

The Flaming Mountain: Captured by natives in an attempt to regain possession of the golden tablet, archeologists are accused of breaking a sacred taboo. While Ramar and Professor Ogden search for them, their captors prepare to administer a deadly "truth serum."
