The Crocodile Hunter

Show Summary

Steve the star was born after a chance encounter with his friend, a television producer who was filming in the Park for TV. In true Steve style they took a punt and the first documentary, "The Crocodile Hunter" was produced in 1992. The tremendous success of this one program quickly encouraged the making of more and so over the next 3 years, 10 one hour episodes were made and on television screens all over the world. Steve has now filmed 50 episodes of "Crocodile Hunter", 52 episodes of "Croc Files", and his next project will be an animated series. WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE CROCODILE HUNTER SERIES?

Steve: "Our aim is to continue producing more wildlife programmes to entertain and enlighten. We'll take the audience to some of the wildest and remotest territories in the world. The time has come when all of us must be accountable. We don't own the planet Earth, we belong to it. And we must share it with our wildlife. It's obvious that every man, woman and child can contribute to the well being of our native wildlife and the planet through simple day-to-day stuff such as recycling, chemical and pollution awareness, and not wasting water. Terri and I eat, sleep and live for wildlife. Our love, passion, and devotion is to educate and share with the world our magnificent - often threatened or sometimes threatening - wildlife. Our job in this world is to bring misunderstood and feared animals (as well as the cute and cuddlies) right into your house, so that we can share and learn about the world's wildlife.

Terri: "Steve and I are very lucky to live and work with what we love best. Zoo life definitely has its ups and downs but there is nothing else we'd rather be doing. It's our goal and our passion to open everyone's hearts to love and care for wildlife for generations to come."

    • The Crocodile Hunter is a show about who else-The Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin.In it Steve Irwin travels the globe exploring animals!Unfortunately he is now dead and the show doesn't make any new episodes anymore!!!moreless

      The Crocodile Hunter is a classic. Steve Irwin is a legend making this show a legend as well! It is so original and informative! It is fascinating how Steve deals with dangerous animals easily but also extremely carefully! For example venomous snakes, crocodiles, tazmaniam devils, sharks,big birds, poisonous fish, venomous spides and insects, etc... He is a 'beast' !!! Unfortunateley, Steve Irwin got killed by an animal no one expected would kill him: a stingray!!! Come on now a stingray. What happened to a crocodile, or a cobra, or a shark?A stingray?The most gentle, calm, and unnoticed animal? Steve Irwin will always be remembered as a legend but most of all, as The Crocodile Hunter!!!!moreless
    • Steve Irwin was a great man... His memory will live on forever!

      Stephen Robert Irwin, also known as just Steve Irwin or The Crocodile Hunter, was a pioneer and a incredible man...

      I looked around on youtube and when I searched for "Steve Irwin tribute" I got about 1600 hits... It's incredible that so many people got so sad... It's like Australias Prime Minister John Howard said: "Australia has lost a wonderful and colourful son." It makes u kinda sad actually... That he could move a whole world with his passion for animals and the environment... And all of his appearances on Jay Leno, among other talk shows, is just hilarious, BUT at the same time you learn and remembers almost everything he says...

      Rest In Peace, MATE =)moreless
    • Steve Irwin the great man. GREAT SHOW

      This is a great show, steve irwin was such a great guy with his love of animals of all shapes and sizes anf his love for his family, its such a shame that he died doin what he loved but the memory of steve will live on and least we have his great shows to remember him by. Shocked me he lasted so long though doin the job he was doing.

      The show is great and makes your heart jump from time to time thinking wow how can he do that. watch this space as im sure once his daughter is abit older she will be the next crocodile hunter.moreless
    • Steve is wrestling crocs and exploring other animals through the outback.

      It was sad to hear about the croc hunters untimely death. He really put Animal Planet on the map. When the show first cmae out, I was enthrawled! He was actually like " I'm gonna wrestle this croc, mate! then I'm gonna hug her!" Life was great. Then something happened, the public didn't lose intrest in Steve, they just got tired of seeing his show. His zoo work was very vital and his show was the perfect backdrop for getting animal causes out in the public. This show would have continued being broadcast for years to come, so let's hope theres enough to keep his memory from fading.moreless
