Creators of Sgt Preston
13 September 1999 | by (Lithonia, Georgia, USA) – See all my reviews

"On King! On you huskies!" I loved this show! The redoubtable Sgt Preston always used to end the show by saying to his dog, "Well, King, this case is closed!" The show was created by George W. Trendle & Fran Stryker who also created The Lone Ranger & The Green Hornet!
