Title: Sergeant Preston: Season 1
Street Date: 03/17/09
From 1955 to1958, family entertainment on Thursday nights revolved around the beloved, action-packed television series Sergeant Preston of the Yukon. Each week, the brave Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer – along with his lead sled dog Yukon King and trusted horse Rex – embarked on another thrilling adventure, thwarting evildoers in the northern Alaskan wilderness during the Gold Rush of the 1890s. Now you can own all 33 episodes of this classic color television show – digitally remastered for unparalleled picture and audio quality – in this special-edition, 5-disc collector’s set. Sergeant Preston of the Yukon starred Richard “Dick” Simmons as Sergeant Preston, who first joined the Mounties in order to capture his father’s killer. A dashing figure in red uniform and broad-brimmed hat, Sergeant Preston – under the command of Inspector Conrad and frequently accompanied by his loyal French-Canadian guide Pierre – single-handedly tackled the rogues and scoundrels who mercilessly preyed upon the peace-loving settlers and gold miners who came to call the frozen wilderness home. The series was based on the long-running radio series Challenge of the Yukon, which aired nationally from Detroit’s innovative, independent radio station WXYZ (1938-1955), owned by George W. Trendle, who was also the inspiration and driving force behind such popular radio shows as The Lone Ranger and The Green Hornet. The television series was filmed on location, shot primarily in Colorado where the snowy surroundings and breathtaking scenery gave the show an authentic appeal. With characters and conflicts around every bend, Sergeant Preston heroically prevailed by the end of each episode, issuing the familiar proclamation, “Well, King, this case is closed,” and solidifying for all time that the Mounties always get their man.
