This Emmy-winning TV cartoon special focuses on the last two remaining curlews, tall striped birds who once thrived around the Arctic shore land. In order to save their species, the two birds must find appropriate mates. Alas, the curlews are being tracked down by a pair of relentless hunters to whom "eco-friendliness" is a foreign term. Produced by Hanna-Barbera and boasting the vocal talents of Ross Martin and Vinnie Van Patten, The Last of the Curlews originally aired as the debut episode of ABC Afterschool Special.
