Trivia

Pat Buttram's sidekick character had a different name in the initial episodes filmed in this series - as had been the practice in the Gene Autry B-westerns in which Buttram co-starred. Due to the TV series' rapid shooting schedule, Autry frequently forgot the name of the character Pat played from episode to episode, resulting in a number of botched takes. Autry finally ordered his writers to call Pat Buttram's sidekick character "Pat Buttram" in all future scripts to eliminate the problem. See more »

5 November 2003 | by (Norman, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

As a fan of Gene Autry since before the fantastically entertaining tv show, I need to point out that the tv show was never called "Melody Ranch." "Melody Ranch" was the name of the radio show than ran from 1940 until 1955 or 56. There has never been that much interest in the radio show, and it is one of the better shows put together, great production values. During his war service, according to announcements on those shows, Gene continued the "Melody Ranch" show but at a Sergeant's pay, not as a cowboy star. Gene was a real patriot all the way round.
