Porter "Po" Ricks was the cheif ranger of Coral Key Park,
Florida, responsible for protecting both the game fish
and the skin divers in the park. A widower, he lived
with his two children, 15-year-old Sandy and 10-year-old
Bud, in a cottage near the shore. The real star of the
series was the boys' pet dolphin, who was both friend and
helper in their weekly adventures. The stories generally
revolved around Flipper and his two young companions.
The New Adventures, which premiered in 1995 is set
in the gorgeous Florida Keys at an advancedoceanic
research facility, the show follows the land and sea
adventures of the typical modern family. Well, almost
typical, because the lead characters Sheriff Tom Hampton
and marine biologist Dr. Jennifer Daulton count their
two kids and a precocious dolphin named Flipper as
immediate family. It’s an action-packed adventure series.
