From his first radio program in the 1930's singing along side with The Sons of The Pioneers, they soon became a big hit on the radio with country western fans. From 1943 to 1954 Roy Rogers was the Number 1 box office star and the Number 1 Western Star, loved by tens of millions of fans all across the country.
Then in 1951 the Roy Rogers’ show premiered on TV and along with Dale Evans the Queen of The West, Trigger the Smartest Horse in The West, Roy's Wonder Dog Bullet, Pat Bradly and his Jeep Nellybelle, and Dale's horse Buttermilk, a new generation of Little Buckaroos was born. For 5 years The Roy Rogers Show was one of the top 10 shows on TV entertaining youngsters and their parents with over 100 action packed fun filled episodes that were sponsored by General Foods, the producers of Post Brand cereals. During the time he was on the radio and TV over 2 1/2 Billion boxes of cereal with his picture or likeness of him found their way to a youngster’s breakfast table.
Hundreds of pieces of memorabilia were created from the TV show and a large number of premiums were found inside boxes of Post cereal and/or could be sent away for just 25 cents. All types of memorabilia are still being sought after especially by the Baby Boomer Generation from the 1950's.
Did you know Trigger was ridden by Olivia DeHavilland in the 1938 movie “The Adventures of Robin Hood” starring Errol Flynn? Trigger could do over 60 tricks and made hundreds of personal appearances along side Roy all over the country. Roy's Christian beliefs and love of family supported him throughout his life. Roy and Dale freely gave their love to countless numbers of children and adults around the world. He loved anything that had to do with the outdoors, his family and grandkids. He also loved candy, his favorite was "Werther's" gold-foiled butterscotch candy and always had a pocket full on hand to give away to kids that toured his museum. His grandkids loved to hear Roy yodel. Just three days before he passed away he yodeled for the last time. At his funeral his kids put a piece of candy in his pocket "to take with him to heaven."
Growing up in the 1950's, a little boy had real heroes like Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy, The Lone Ranger and Tonto, Zorro, and Roy Rogers all of which had values which are greatly missing and lacking in our politicians and entertainers today. If you collect Roy Rogers memorabilia then this will be a very nice addition to your collection or a fantastic gift for your mom or dad or a grandparent who grew up watching Roy in the movies or on TV.
