After years of playing the beleagured victim in thrillers and disaster movies, Carol Lynley finally got to play the hero in The Beasts Are on the Streets in this 1978 made-for TV disaster movie. It was animation company Hanna-Barbera’s first foray into live action. An oil tanker crashes through the gates of a zoo freeing all the wild animals. Dr. Carol Lynley, a veternarian, with her cute colleague Dale Robinette are called in to help round up the beasts before they do any harm to the townsfolk.
