ARK II (CBS 1976) THE COMPLETE SERIES - VERY RARE!!!
For millions of years, Earth was fertile and rich; then pollution and waste began to take their toll. Civilization fell into ruin. This is the world of the Twenty-Fifth Century; only a handful of scientists remain, men who have vowed to rebuild what has been destroyed. This is their achievement: ARK II, a mobile storehouse of scientific knowledge, manned by a highly trained crew of young people. Their mission: To bring the hope of a new future to mankind.
Ark II was a television program produced by Filmation as part of their Saturday Morning live-action children's block on the CBS network in the '70s, along with Shazam and The Secrets of Isis. Fifteen episodes were produced in 1976, although it continued to run in syndication until 1979.
It follows the adventures of four scientists (Terry Lester, Jean Marie Hon, José Flores) and Adam, a talking chimpanzee (Moochie, voice provided by show producer Lou Scheimer), who travel through post-apocalyptic landscapes in a highly advanced mobile laboratory, trying to rebuild human society after pollution has decimated the world. On their journey, as they meet people they take time to teach them valuable life lessons.
Notable guest-stars were Jonathan Harris (Lost In Space), Jim Backus (Gilligan’s Island), Helen Hunt (Mad About You), Mitch Vogal (Bonanza), Dawn Lyn (My Three Sons), and Vito Scotti.
