Northern Landscape and Fashion
1 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I also watched this as a 50s kid in Los Angeles - all the other shows (with pretty much the same plots) were about cowboys or, more interestingly, cops: Roy Rogers, Hopalong Cassidy, Gene Autry, more interestingly Dragnet, 77 Sunset Strip. Preston was the first I ever knew featuring a landscape of snow, with tall evergreens, whistling wind and log cabins, exists. And how much more impressive Preston looked than any cowboy, crouching in the snow with his massive black (b/w the only colors) fur coat and fur hat - only rarely the dress (red) coat and round Mounty hat. I also recall that you could buy and Mom did buy a certain cereal to get Sergeant Preston "snow goggles" to prevent snow blindness, which were cardboard spectacles with a narrow slit to look through - either they came in the box or you cut them out from the box itself (accurate reminder appreciated - eBay URL would be even better.)
