More childhood memories

Just received this set and have watched one of the episodes. I have been catching these shows on a local TV channel on Saturday mornings under a different title and DVRd them, then decided to buy the entire series so I would always have them, especially for my grandchildren. This was a dear favorite of mine in the 1950s, and I remember drooling over Richard Simmons then, and as an adult I see my taste hasn't changed. He sure is a sight to behold in his uniform and his mannerisms and style are absolutely smashing. He seems so natural as a Mountie. When originally watching these shows I recall there weren't many with his horse, but lately I've only seen the summer shows and am looking forward to the winter ones. After all, living in Maine we had a lot in common with the Yukon. One thing I noticed on the back of the package they mentioned the Mounties "doing work in Alaska." Now surely whoever wrote that should know that Alaska wasn't part of Canada even in the 1890s. Stuff like that drives me nuts. It is truly a wonderful series with great moral messages. Also it amazes me that we have the technology to relive these old series again. It will mean a lot to us 'war babies' and 'baby boomers' as we age even more. I would highly recommend it to anyone tired of the drivel coming out of Hollywood today.

The production was excellent of season 2 of this wonderful series. As I look forward to season 3 (the last) I can't help but wonder, more than 50 years later, why they didn't continue it. The writing is pretty good (with an occasional exception), and the acting and sets were top notch, considering that they did so many episodes per year and didn't have much time to work on each one. Simmons, King, and Rex are all quite beautiful specimens of their type!
Sgt Preston for truth, justice and the Canadian way.

1950s TV series about a Mountie and his beloved dog, set in the late 1890s Yukon Gold Rush. Think wild woolly western travelling lawman with plenty of snow (the cold and wet kind) and no female companionship whatsoever. Richard Simmons stars as the requisite handsome mustachioed Mountie, derivative of the 1930-1950 Challenge of the Yukon Radio series. Small parts were actually filmed outdoors. There are dogsleds, steamships, telegraphs, Eskimoes, Indians, plus French and English speaking Canadians. Not quite the usual Classic Western, but produced by the same people who did The Lone Ranger. 2nd round of fun stuff.

Sergeant Preston of the Yukon Season Two

Much like season one of Sergeant Preston of the Yukon, Season Two had excellent production values. The audio and video restoration was super on this season of the series. Again, all the right values were being displayed during the airing of this season. Again, great writers and producers. Fran Striker stories seemed to be a notch higher than the other writers.

These are great shows that bring back a lot of fond memories. The shows promote good values, provide action, outdoor adventure, a bit of history and they are all in color. My children are now enjoying the show. It is much better than much of the 'educational' programming available to children now. Truly, a timeless classic. It is appropriate for most children, without being dumbed-down. Adults will enjoy it, as well.
