December 6, 1947:
The Everglades National Park in Florida is dedicated.
"In the Everglades there's a way of life, it's a way of peace without stress or strife; there's a fellow there who protects these rights; Lincoln Vail of the Everglades, the man on patrol in the Everglades..."
That way of life in the Everglades was featured in the following shows:
'The Everglades' 1961-62
'Gentle Ben' 1967-69
'Swamp Thing' 1990-92
'Dexter' used the Everglades - as a dumping site for the remains of his victims. And other shows have had at least one episode set in the Everglades or had the plot center on the Everglades:
'The West Wing'
And in the Tooniverse:
'The Wild Thornberrys'
