Great show. Hard to find
24 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Maybe it was the theme, maybe it was the great continuing story plot, or maybe it was the fact that it was filmed on videotape rather than film. Maybe it was a combination of it all but this show is unforgettable. I bought the old black and white version and was disappointed. scans thru google and ebay show no finds for people with a collection of the late 70's early version of the show. I wrote the people who released the older version on DVD asking to release the newer version and they sent me a generic email stating that littlest hobo is available on DVD, the old version. Grrr! If anyone has found a way to acquire even some of the 79-81 series of Littlest Hobo please email me Suntop007 hotmail. Thanks! Incidentally I have a clean MP3 copy of the theme song if anyone wants it email me, will email it to you. Incidentally, the comparisons to Rambo in a later post seems a bit out of touch to me. I never saw the final episodes but as I understand it the voice that was calling London was his homeworld. He was a visiting alien from another world which is why he was smarter than the average bear. I have no clue how the series finally ended, if it had a proper ending but I can imagine Londong beaming back up to go home in the end. Any verification? Cause I don't think Hobo's voices were at all like Rambo's.
