Airing for 56 (30 minute) episodes from Sept. 10, '67 to August 31, '69 on CBS, the endearing television classic GENTLE BEN stars one of my favorite actors - Dennis Weaver - as Wildlife officer "Tom Wedloe" and then child star Clint Howard as his son "Mark". The series centers around Mark's relationship with a black bear named "Ben" and is set in/and around the Florida Everglades. Beth Brickell plays Tom's wife "Ellen". This series has been long coming and it's good to see it finally getting a release date set for October 15, 2013. As there are no episode listings, I have included them below with a brief summary and special guest assignment.

A few of the notable guest stars will include:
Mala Powers, Ron Howard, Bud Irwin, Albert Salmi, Burt Reynolds, Ric Applewhite, Howard Da Silva, Slim Pickens, Pat Hingle, William Windom, Strother Martin, and many more!

The episode list for this season one release will include:

1. HURRICANE COMING - Ben leads a group to safety during a hurricane.
2. GREEN-EYED BEAR - Ben gets jealous when a family adopts a rescued cub.
3. FISH ANCH CHIPS - Poachers threaten Mark Wedloe and Ben.
4. GATOR MAN - A new friend's father turns out to be an alligator poacher.
5. VOICE IN THE WILDERNESS - A plane, loaded with zoo animals, crashes in the Florida Everglades.
6. INVASION OF WILLLIE SAM GOPHER - Mark tries to convince a father to send his son to school.
7. RESTLESS BEAR - Ben fights for his life against a wild bear.
8. BATTLE OF WEDLOE'S WOODS - A developer plans to build a housing development in the Everglades.
9. WARDEN FOR MAN AND BEAST - A man and his performing bear retire.
10. A WASTE OF HONEY - A pair of strangers plunders beehives.

I remember this show as a child mostly because of Dennis Weaver ,(Gunsmoke) but also that way cool airboat. also their friend's swamp buggie gets kudos from me being as I am "Mechanically enclined", these things appeal to me . The show itself is very much like Flipper but with a bear! If you like Flipper , or airboats you'll probably like this show as well.

Gentle Ben is a favorite of mine because some of the best actors star in it. Dennis Weaver is and all time favorite of mine. He does a fine job in anything he plays in. It is in a location that is beautiful and shows some of the best shots of natural habitat. It is a pleasure to watch little animals scurry around and watch the waterfowl. I love the air boats. Little Mark sure is a fine boy and sure loves Ben his bear. it is a series for children and the whole family. It is clean and decent and that's more than we can say for some others/

We don't watch network TV at my house because of the inappropriate, or scary commercials at all hours. So I carefully select DVDs for my children to watch. Gentle Ben is definitely family friendly! If your family likes nature and positive role models with good moral lessons, you will like Gentle Ben. The boy on the show speaks to his parents and all adults in a respectful manner. The show is set in FL in the Everglades in the late 1960s. In each episode, the boy gets into some kind of trouble and his pet black bear, Ben, saves him. It's very similar to "Lassie" or "Flipper". My 8 year old can't get enough of Gentle Ben!
