THE ADVENTURES OF CHAMPION takes its name from Gene Autry’s beautiful horse, Champion, in this family-friendly series produced by Autry’s Flying A Productions.
Ricky North (Barry Curtis), who like any youngster, has a nose for trouble and adventure, lives on a ranch with his Uncle Sandy (Jim Bannon) and his faithful German Shepherd, Rebel. Ricky and the wild stallion develop a bond, and while Champion runs free, only Ricky can summon him with a whistle from the remuda. Time after time, Ricky, Champion and Rebel are faced with danger and risks that arise on the frontier, and it is Champion, a horse of great intelligence and speed, that often saves the day! No matter what scrapes Ricky manages to get himself into, the Wonder Horse and Rebel are on hand to save the day.
THE ADVENTURES OF CHAMPION is great family entertainment, in the tradition of Fury and My Friend Flicka, which replaced Champion at the end of its run. These 10 exciting episodes bring the Old West alive, as Champion, Ricky and Rebel team up to take on all comers!
