Here at Slightly Burned Pants, We don’t want anyone to feel left out, so here’s a heapin’ helpin’ of Tales of the Gold Monkey, starring your friend and mine Stephen Collins as the roguish Jake Cutter.
Thanks to alert Facebook followers (Read: Sean Scaletta), we were reminded that his sidekick was, in fact, a Jack Russell terrier with a patch on his eye, named Jack. The dog used to have a fake eye made out of Opal that Jake lost in a poker game. Shenanigans!
But let us also not forget that RODDY MCDOWALL was also in this one-season wonder of a show, as Bon Chance Louie (but to be fair, Ron Moody played him in the pilot and McDowall took over on the series. I can’t believe Moody had bigger fish to fry).
Here’s the opening credits!
