Back in 1976, Cheryl Miller co-starred in a now hard-to-find movie titled “Mountain Man.” Also known as “Guardian of the Wilderness it stars Denver Pyle, Ken Berry, Donald Shanks and Cheryl. From imdb.com: “It is the supposedly true story of Galen Clark, the man who created Yosemite Park. In the twilight of his life and […]
Walter unearthed this cool article; as you will see, it has some new information. By DOUG BROWN She has blue eyes. They sparkle. She has blonde hair. It glutens in the sunlight. She has personality, a charming smile, a determination, and a way with animals. Cheryl Miller sat in the shade at the Spa, very […]
Cheryl Miller’s first break in show business came straight from the maternity ward. A casting man from the soon-to-be-produced movie Casanova Brown needed a baby. Coming to Hollywood’s St. John’s Hospital, he pointed to a calmly sleeping Cheryl and said, “That one please, if her parents approve.” They did. She was cast as the son […]
How could love Daktari and not love cats? I am thisclose to being a crazy cat lady. 🙂 We all know how much Cheryl Miller loved her cats, both big and small. That being said, I wanted to share with you a book I recently self-published known as The Critter Room Memory Book Volume One […]
When I set out to recreate my Cheryl Miller scrapbook, my vision was small. Just replace my pictures. I probably now have twice as many pictures as I ever had with my scrapbook, having replaced several treasured ones, and acquiring many more new photos. As a kid I I wished I had been able to […]
I treated myself on a cold and rainy day to a bit of a Daktari marathon, watching “Wall of Flames” and “Return of the Killer” from season one, and concluding with “Clarence, the Cross-Eyed Lion.” It’s been a long time since I saw this movie and I have to say it held up pretty well. […]

Courtesy of crazymonkey1958 – from Season 4. Shelly Manne’s theme was very cool! It’s too bad though that Daktari lost its edge in Season 4 (you might even say it started losing it in Season 3). Adding Erin Moran as orphan Jenny Jones might have been a good move (but it certainly reduced Cheryl Miller’s […]
What’s your favorite episode of Daktari? Mine is from Season 2, called “Terror in the Bush.” This is why I was so excited when the announcement came from Warner Archives that they were releasing the complete second season on DVD (see here for more information).

In an attempt […]

by Ken Lynch Many viewers of Daktari thought that Yale Summers was perfect as Jack Dane. His rapport with animals and Cheryl Miller (his co-star and potential love interest in the show) suggested a long-term stay with the TV series. But all was not as it seemed behind the scenes! Revealing The Truth Very little […]
