IMDb mistake
25 August 2006 | by (Studio City, CA) – See all my reviews

Beware. The DVD cover presented by IMDb and the DVD from Amazon.com are not from this series. Legendary Lawmen is a different series. The Deputy has not been released on DVD or VHS as of September 1, 2006. Some of the episode copyrights were renewed by Universal City Studios, Inc., which now is owned by the National Broadcasting Company (NBC), which is owned by General Electric (GE).

Also, the program music theme by Jack Marshall is under copyright so even if some episodes are in public domain, the theme music is under copyright. There were seventy-six episodes produced by Top Gun Productions.
