"OK, so they're not really huskies and you never quite shake that infernal wind machine that's going every time anybody ever steps out of their studio mountain cabin (even though trees don't appear to be the least bit affected) but what 10 year-old kid (or nostalgia hungry old geezer) can't get excited about the real Richard Simmons? Role model of truth, justice and the American way among neighbors in the north (Canada) and a '50's fashion icon in his vibrant, military red coat. Solid, family-friendly entertainment from the fifties.
There was nothing suspect about this hero who talked to his dog in every episode "well, King this case is closed" and the world might be a better place today if there were more like him. At least we can recapture "those thrilling days of yesteryear" (yup, Fran Striker, brainchild behind the Lone Ranger TV series also had a hand in this one too) in a glossy, embossed tin that got us all outdoors. Ten color episodes on 2 dvds' are packaged here:
Disc One:"Crime at Wounded Moose", "Skagway Secret",' "Blind Justice",
"Phantom of Phoenixville", & "Dog Race".
Disc Two: "One Bear Too Many", "Justice at Goneaway Creek", "Black Ace", "Relief Train", & "Trapped".
Are these the best of the 3 seasons that were on TV and released? Having not seen the other shows for comparison, who knows? But one does wish that a little more love were put into this Timeless Video release. Typo on the tin (Disc One "Dog Race" not "Dog Rade") and 2 titles that do not match up with episodes also on Disc One. Come on guys, snap out of it. Give us product that is consistent with the image that is Sergeant Preston, Yukon King and Rex the Wonder Horse.
Mr. Simmons passed away several years ago here in California and I, for one, feel he deserves to be in a typo-free can with accurate episodes contained within."I arrest my case in the name of the crown"!"
Great TV series for the entire family!

"This was one of my favorite TV series. As a kid I used to watch this TV series every Saturday morning (along with the other great TV series like The Lone Ranger, Sky King, Rin Tin Tin, Kit Carson, etc). back in the 50s and early 60s.The DVD set is excellent and comes in a very attractive tin litho case, with the name and images of "Sergeant Preston with Yukon King" raised in 3-D on the lid."
