Yo Rinty

Saturday mornings when I was a kid meant the TV belonged to me.  For six glorious hours the parade of kid’s shows rolled by – Bugs Bunny, Fury, Hopalong Cassidy, Sky King, Pinky Lee, The Roy Rogers Show, Mighty Mouse, the Lone Ranger, and my favorite… The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin.  The show debuted October 15, 1954… 64 years ago today.  It ran for 164 episodes through 1959 and I watched most of them. The story of Rusty and his dog Rin Tin Tin, orphaned by an indian raid and adopted by the soldiers of Fort Apache. Rusty, his dog Rinty, his good friend Lieutenant Rip Masters, along with Sergeant Biff O’Hara and Corporal Boone pretty much cleaned up the area around Mesa Grande Arizona in the 1880’s. And Saturday afternoon a trip to the grocery store to help mom carry groceries always meant a new comic book for me, and a lot of those were Rin Tin Tin.  What a great time to be a little kid…
