Never heard of Adventures in Paradise. However, some of my friends watched Rin Tin Tin but I never got into it. Arguments over which was the better show, Rin Tin Tin or Lassie were frequently seen and heard. Sometimes Old Yeller came up too.
When I was around 7th or 8th grade Where the Red Fern Grows was my favorite book. Read it many times.
"Adventures in Paradise" was about "the schooner Tiki III, which sailed the South Pacific looking for passengers and adventure". Sort of a "Route 66 afloat" with a boat instead of a Corvette. And since that covers land and sea transport, we might as well include airborne travel.... anybody else remember "Sky King"?
On a side note, since you brought up Lassie, in the late 80s I met June Lockhart (we were partners in a croquet match which is a whole story in itself). She had some great stories about her time on Lassie. She could also swear with great gusto whenever she missed a shot. It was really weird hearing those 4 letter words coming from Timmy's mom.
