5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent series! March 10 2013
By got jesus? TOP 500 REVIEWER
This is an excellent series of shows. Great for all ages. This is the best and most rare of all 3 seasons. Picture and sound quality is perfect, even on new large screen hdtvs. Who would not love to have a dog like king. And, NO this not a kiddy show. Myself, i am over 50 and love all these shows. Every show is great. This 3 disc set is must see tv. If? you want this 3rd dvd set? Do not buy from these crazy over priced sellers. You can buy all 3 seasons from SELL.COM for about $50.00 bucks or less including shipping cost. His copys have perfect picture and sound. Yes, copys but perfect copys on dvd with only paper sleves. But so what?

4.0 out of 5 stars Here is the Yukon....(season #3) March 28 2008
By Only-A-Child - Published on Amazon.com
The 78 half-hour episodes of the "kiddie" television adventure series "Sergeant Preston of the Yukon" were originally broadcast on CBS during the 1955 to 1958 broadcast seasons; and in syndication for many years after. The Season Two DVD set features the 22 episodes from the third and final season. The episode titles and their original air-dates are listed below; it was a Thursday night show.

This was one of many transplants from network television. It was created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker who also put together both the radio and television versions of "The Lone Ranger" and the radio version of "The Green Hornet".

At a time of look-alike westerns filmed on the back-lots of Hollywood, "Sergeant Preston of the Yukon" offered viewers the white landscape of Canada's Yukon Territory. It was actually filmed each winter in the mountains near Big Bear Lake, in southern California.

Like "The Lone Ranger", each week the story's setting and characters were described by the narrator in the opening credits: "Sergeant Preston of the Northwest Mounted Police with Yukon King, swiftest and strongest lead dog breaking the trail in the relentless pursuit of lawbreakers, in the wild days of the Yukon. Back to the days of the Gold Rush, as Sergeant Preston, with his wonder dog, Yukon King, meets the challenge of the Yukon".

The gold rush he is talking about occurred in the 1890's as Canada's desolate western frontier found itself suddenly occupied by a swarm of gold crazed miners, cutthroats, and tenderfeet. It was up to Sgt. Preston (his first name is never used) to track down thieves, murderers, and claim jumpers. The job left him no time for romance even though his Boston Blackie mustache, red uniform, puffed-out trousers, and DI would no doubt have driven the ladies crazy.

No doubt the education of baby boomers on NWMP lore was responsible for the successful introduction of "Dudley Do-right" to "Rocky and and His Friends/The Bullwinkle Show" (1959-1964).

Then again, what do I know? I'm only a child.

Not much more to add other than this continued right on where seasons one and two left off. I found quite a bit of audio hum in several episodes of the third season, other than that it was excellently restored. Again, great for viewers of all ages.

We were too young to see Sergeant Preston when it was originally on, but sure enjoy the opportunity to see them now. I am amazed that they were filmed in color, and filmed so beautifully.
