Cartoon Production Information:


This special was the pilot for the twenty-six-episode series that also aired on ABC.

The series aired from September 10, 1966 to August 31, 1969. Twenty-four thirty-minute episodes were produced, each with two eight-minute King Kong episodes paired with a single eight-minute Tom Thumb, 001/7. This one-hour special was split into the final two 20-minute shows, making the whole series run twenty-six episodes.

To get the rights (from the owners of the property, RKO General, Inc.) to use the name King Kong for television, executive producer Arthur Rankin, Jr. had to promise to make a feature film. This resulted in Rankin producing and directing his first non-animated movie, "King Kong Escapes," for RKO.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
