Jim Fowler goes out to the field for the last time.

If you were a kid in the 1960s, on Sunday night you watched Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom before 60 Minutes. Host Marlon Perkins always seemed to be leaving partner Jim Fowler out in the field while he went back to the studio to shill for Mutual of Omaha insurance. It got to be a running joke with us. "While Jim wrestles the Tiger, we'll talk about your coverage."

Fowler died at the age of 89.

After Wild Kingdom he was a regular on shows like The Tonight Show, bringing strange and often endangered animals to the show and raising public awareness about extinction. He''ll be missed
