After big movie and radio success, on June 24, 1949, Hopalong Cassidy became the first network Western television series - inspiring numerous westerns throughout the 1950s. Do you remember Hopalong? What were YOUR favorite westerns?

We had a Hopalong swimming pool back in the day.

Yep. Had my first cow girl outfit then. It was red. Every time the fringe rubbed across the back of my legs I screamed something awful bringing my parents running cause I thought a spider was crawling on the back of my legs. Finally my mom cut the fringe off. LOL
From what I understand Gene Autry is still alive and is still looking good.

Gene Autry died in 1998. William Boyd, who played Hopaloong, died in 1972.

I had a Roy Rogers lunch pail with his horse Trigger on it in grade school.

Gene Rogers - Mine was one of the general red plaid ones. Remember those. We were poor though, so I was lucky then I didn't get stuck with a brown paper bag like I did when we moved to the country and I could no longer walk home for lunch.

I can talk about Italy; the most famous series was Bonanza; arrived in Italy in 1962 and accompanied me throughout my childhood; then, of course, there were other westerns, both American and Italian; the Italian ones, made in Italy, I remember many with Clint Eastwood

My cowboy hero was The Lone Ranger!! My favorite toy was my "ivory"-handled Lone Ranger cap gun! Nobody stood up against villains like the Lone Ranger!!

I liked Roy Rogers, too...liked his singing.

And then there was the Cisco Kid...and Johnny Yuma, The Rebel...and Zorro....

I met Hopalong and his wife early '60s - they were having dinner at my dad's restaurant.

I've seen any number of westerns made for TV, and Hoppy was OK at best. I've also seen numerous movies that had William Boyd in them, and also feel he was just OK. He wasn't the first western good guy, and he certainly hasn't been the last, but he definitely wasn't the best. But that's fine, as to each his own...

Oh, I remember "Hoppy" as he was known to others. With a name like that, Sue would have been more reasonable. But, in his defense, usually the man in black, was the bad guy.
