The television show was based on the 1974 film of the same name. That, in turn, was based on the life of James Adams, who in the 1850s, fled into the mountains after being accused of a crime he didn’t commit. In the show, when Adams adopts an abandoned grizzly bear cub, he raises it to become an adult companion he calls Ben. In terms of human companions, he has an old trader named Mad Jack and a Native American named Nakoma. Grizzly Adams, with his uncanny link to the wilderness, has to watch for bounty hunters because there's a price on his head.
