This Mountie Always Got His Man
8 November 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Sergeant Preston Of The Yukon like The Lone Ranger created from the minds of George W. Trendle and Fran Striker was a staple of radio for many years. When series radio was coming to an end, the Sergeant brought his team of huskies led by his lead dog King to television and week and after week for three years kids got snow blind watching those wintry episodes. Of course in the tradition of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the sergeant never failed to get his man.

As it was from the folks who gave you the Lone Ranger the show did emphasize clean living and strict family values. Of course what those folks in the frozen north did to get a little comfort on those cold winter nights is best left unsaid.

King was as helpful to Preston as Rin Tin Tin was to Rusty and the rest of the US Cavalry. And during the winter months he was essential. I can't conceive of Richard Simmons ever being forced to eat King as say Polar explorers like Scott, Nansen, Peary, and Amundsen being forced to eat their transportation to prevent starvation.

I may be a bit to jocular and humorous, but Sergeant Preston Of The Yukon was a decent show and for more than just the kid trade. It did evoke some fond memories after seeing some episodes recently.

And still he and Nelson Eddy have in their images set a kind of standard for the men of the RCMP to live up to.
