The Roy Rogers Show

If you can get COZI TV (see below) with an over-the-air antenna, you can watch classic shows such as "The Roy Rogers Show."  Remember the opening?

"The Roy Rogers Show, starring Roy Rogers, king of the cowboys; Trigger, his golden palomino; and Dale Evans, queen of the West, with Pat Brady, his comical sidekick, and Roy's wonderdog, Bullet." Not mentioned in the opening was the name of Dale's horse, Buttermilk, nor that of Pat's jeep, NellyBell.  The show featured exactly 100 episodes over six years, from 1952 to 1957.  Roy's Double R Bar Ranch was supposedly located near Mineral City, a town whose location was never identified.  Harry Harvey played the part of the town's sheriff in a majority of the episodes.

As the credits rolled at the end of each episode, Roy and Dale sang the theme song that Dale had composed, "Happy Trails":

"Happy trails to you, until we meet again;
"Happy trails to you. Keep smilin' until then;
"Happy trails to you, 'til we meet again."
