      Looks as though it's a sad day in Branson.
      While the link in our previous post still works, I called them to confirm Keith's sad news.
      As it currently stands, Dec 12th is the end. Hopefully, some wealthy Roy Rogers fan can help them out.
      This economy has probably been a drag on many in Branson.

      I also think, that as we all get older,
      there are very few alive, who remember the old stars,
      and I guess the younger ones are not so bothered!

      Very true, I was just talking on the phone with one of our other members,
      and he had another thought, that Roy's movie's aren't being played 24/7 on TV like Duke's are, and, as you said," the younger ones are not so bothered".
      Hopefully the Donations will be coming in!

      Hate to see this happening. Hopefully, the folks in Winterset will be able to learn from whatever mistakes were made here so they can prevent it from happening to Duke's museum.

    • Re: (New Review) Classic TV Westerns- The Roy Rogers Show (1951–1957)

      The Roy Rogers Show is an American Western television series
      that broadcast one hundred episodes on NBC for six seasons between December 30, 1951 and June 9, 1957.
      The show starred Roy Rogers as a ranch owner, Dale Evans as the proprietor
      of the Eureka Cafe in fictional Mineral City, and Pat Brady as Roy’s sidekick and Dale's cook.
      Brady's jeep Nellybelle had a mind of her own and often sped away driverless
      with Brady in frantic pursuit on foot. Animal stars were Roy's Palomino horse, Trigger
      and his German Shepherd wonder dog, Bullet.

      The show was filmed at the Samuel Goldwyn Studio, and originally sponsored by General Foods
      (Post Cereals and Jell-O).
      The show's theme song, “Happy Trails”, was written by Dale Evans
      and sung over the end credits by Rogers and Evans.

      The show received an Emmy nomination in 1955 for Best Western or Adventure Series,
      but it lost out to the syndicated Stories of the Century, an anthology series starring and narrated by Jim Davis.

      Beginning in 1961, CBS broadcast reruns of The Roy Rogers Show for three and a half seasons
      on Saturday mornings. Reruns also aired in France in 1962.
      Reruns are currently being aired on RFD-TV, which also sells T-shirts and plush toys of Trigger and Bullet.

      Like Rogers’s films, the series featured traditional cowboys and cowgirls riding horses
      and carrying six-shooters in a contemporary setting where they coexisted with automobiles, telephones,
      and electric lighting.
      No attempt was made in the scripts to explain or justify this strange blend of 19th-century characters with 20th-century technology.
      Typical episodes followed the stars as they rescued the weak and helpless
      from the clutches of dishonest lawmen, claim jumpers, rustlers, and other "bad guys."
      The show was merchandised for the juvenile market with
      comic books, play sets, western costumes, and many other item

      The Roy Rogers Show
      was a popular TV series of the 50's.
      They were also screened at the same time as Roy's popular movies.
      As the user review says, everyone just played themselves!!
      The song 'Happy Trails' becoming extremely popular.
      The strange mixture of wild west with the modern world at the time,
      was something we also experienced in some of Duke's early westerns.
      Filmed in familiar locations to Duke fans,
      and featured many of the days character actors.

      The series was followed some years later in 1962 by the ill-fated
      See:-
      The Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Show

      It was an attempt to revive Roy's and Dale's flagging popularity,
      but was cancelled some months later.

      3 October 2005 | by jonesy74-1 (United States)
      Not to be derogatory, but I always wondered why Roy Rogers
      was the King of the Cowboys and John Wayne wasn't.
      What WAS John Wayne, anyway? Oh yeah, The Duke.
      Oh well. I guess it was because Wayne couldn't sing with the Sons of the Pioneers,
      although Wayne did sing a little in "Hatari"
      and didn't have that bad of a voice... but I digress.


      Who could resist Roy Rogers' charm? I mean, he was the nicest guy in the world.
      He even smiled while he was roundin' up the bad guys after they'd been bested.

      Dale had the best post-menopausal vibrato I'd ever heard after she got a little older
      - but she was Roy's partner and could pull her gun on an ornery desperado
      as fast as any of the ranch hands.

      Roy had Trigger (horse) and Bullet (dog), but, Pat Brady had Nellybell (a jeep).
      Pat Brady was played by Pat Brady, just as Roy Rogers played
      Roy Rogers and Dale Evans played Dale Evans.
      Were there any actors in this series who played anyone
      other than themselves? I mean, did Trigger and Bullet
      even have different names than their stage names?
      Pat was a great comedian - goofy face and lovable.
      A great sidekick for Roy.

      And of course, Roy and Dale sang "Happy Trails" at the end of each show.
      That right there was worth the half hour watch.

      I remember reading somewhere that Trigger, Western icon that he was, was even stuffed and mounted after he died.
      De gustibus non est disputandum
    • Re: (New Review) Classic TV Westerns- The Roy Rogers Show (1951–1957)

      Trigger was indeed stuffed, in fact he was sold at an auction recently after the close of the Roy Rogers Museum.

      This is easily my number favorite western series. I have about 20 episodes on DVD but I am still missing my favorite one, Brady's Bonanza.
