The adventures happen in the 1869-1877 period as we can see president Grant in Season 2, Episode 7. The German Shepherd is a relatively new breed of dog, with their origin dating to 1899 so the whole series is an historical mistake. See more »
Towards the end of the 1970s nostalgia boom, this series was re-released in sepia-tone, with new color wraparounds featuring James Brown in character as Lt. Masters, "telling" each installment's story to a group of children. See more »
I have a long time connection to good ol' Rinty. I'm not old enough to have been lucky enough to watch the original TV series but I watched the reruns over and over again as a child. It was one of my favorite shows to watch besides Shirley Temple but I digress... My connection to Rinty was in that my grandfather had several German shepherds that were from Rita's direct lineage. He was always so proud of that. I remember them growing up with Blackie, and Lady. They were the best dogs. I always used to play with them and thought it was the neatest thing that they were related to "The" Rinty that I used to watch on TV. How cool is that!
