Champion was in fact played by four different horses. The original "Champion" that made Gene Autry famous in the movies is not the same horse that appeared in the 1955-1956 TV series. Champion easily earned his title of "Wonder Horse" by performing a variety of tricks which included kneeling, untying rope knots and dancing and prancing for the public. It died (buried at Autry's Melody Ranch) when Autry was serving in the military during World War II. The others: "Champion" (the horse of the TV series), a chestnut stallion foaled in 1940. The others - "Champion Jr." and "Little Champion" - were all used in Autry's postwar films. "Champion's" hoofprints can be seen in front of Graumann's Chinese Theater in Hollywood. See more »
A big hit with kids in the UK during its re-run in the 1970s. Always played at the end of the childrens slot around 5.30pm on weeknights, before the boring grownups shows came on... like the Six O'Clock News.
Sat glued week after week. Never mind that it's black & white, never mind that it's good ole' cowboy action, with the hook of a "trick" horse, it was wholesome, brilliant entertainment for young minds. 'Gentle Ben' and 'Flipper' never came close with the formula.
Long overdue a DVD release, so we can show OUR kids what it was like!
