Will champ save Ricky this week?
3 April 2002 | by (Streeb Greebling Acres) – See all my reviews

Damn Right he will.

I remember this series with a lot of affection, "Champion The Wonder Horse" as it was released in the U.K heralded the beginning of the weekend and a whole heap of action for my 6 yr old mind.

Living in London, and not even having a pet the wild adventures of Ricky, Champion, Ricky's Dog and Uncle Sandy (who never seemed to do anything, but always had a pearl of wisdom for the end credits) were a staple of Saturday morning's.

Basic adventures but ones that fired the imagination. Baddies would be trying to sell worthless land by shooting gold dust into the ground, but Ricky and Champ would foil their plans, hiding from baddies Ricky would put a branch on Champ's tail to wipe away Hoof print's and would generally save the day. Which is what most kids at that age would love to do.

Light and harmless entertainment that was truly innocent, a great series and where is the DVD!
