Watch The Roy Rogers Show Online - Full Episodes
The Roy Rogers Show is a western television series that was broadcast in the U.S. on the NBC network. The series starred ranch owner, Roy Rogers and his wife, Dale Evans as the Eureka Cafe proprietor in the fictional town of Mineral City. Pat Brady was Dale's cook and Roy's sidekick.
The series was filmed at Samuel Goldwyn Studios and its original sponsor was General Foods, featuring Post Cereals and Jell-O. Dale Evans wrote the show's famous theme song, Happy Trails, which is sung over end credits by both Evans and Rogers.
The series featured both traditional cowboys as well as cowgirls carrying six-shooters in contemporary settings. They rode horses and coexisted with vehicles, electric lighting and telephones. There was no attempt at explaining or justifying the blend of the 19th and 20th century lifestyles.
A typical episode might follow actors rescuing a helpless and weak person from a variety of villains, such as claim jumpers, dishonest lawmen and rustlers.
Brady's jeep was called Nellybelle and seemed to have a mind of its own, often speeding away without a driver, leaving Brady in frantic pursuit.
The animal stars on the show were just as important as any other character, such as Roy's Palomino, Trigger and a German Shepherd called Bullet. The main Palomino, the original Trigger, was called "the Old Man" and was born to stock owner Captain Larry Good. The horse's second owner, Roy F. Cloud Jr., was a breeder from Noblesville, Indiana.
There were several horses used during filming that were called Trigger, such as Little Trigger that was featured on a Life magazine cover in 194. Trigger, Jr. was a stallion also used on personal appearances.
CBS broadcast the show and received Emmy nominations in 1955 for Best Western or Adventure Series. Reruns were broadcast for three and a half seasons Saturday mornings for over four years on NBC. Reruns were also aired in 1962 in France and are also aired on RFD-TV.
The show's popularity has been demonstrated by reruns, a museum and merchandise such as play sets, comic books, costumes and other items.
