Back in the day when I was in my single digit years, Rin Tin Tin made his television debut in a series about an orphan kid and the German shepherd puppy found by Cavalry as the only survivors of a wagon train massacre. It was a great TV kid's show and still running in syndication someplace in the world.
We never knew what Rusty's last name was. Lee Aaker played the boy who I thought was lucky at the time to live and grow up on an army post in territorial Arizona. What a great childhood.
Aaker was supported by a good group of movie professionals like James Brown, Joe Sawyer, and Rand Brooks. But it was the boy and the dog and like the previous reviewer, I can still hear the cry of Yo Rinty when Rusty sicced him on a bad guy.
I still remember the episode where Rusty saw the legendary White Buffalo and there were two episodes in which a British colonel and his batman came over from India and later the Fort Apache regulars go over there to deal with real Indians.
Shows for a more innocent time.
