Good series, great theme!
8 April 2003 | by (Blue Mountains, Australia) – See all my reviews

Thanks for your memories, Andrew. This is one show I really would like to see again. All I have are the two versions of the theme on reel to reel tape, circa 1961. Did the boys operate between Canada and the US? I just can't remember, alas.
