    Oh my, what memories this brings and tears from my childhood.
    manolito was my favourite too.
    It used to be on before Star Trek on the BBC in the mid 70s when I was
    very young!

    @cattlewrangler you said everything I totally feel about Present Day TV, all these channels and not a decent program on them. Thankfully like you I saw the best of them in the 60 & 70 on RTE

    The credits and theme song were great for this show, but the show itself sucked… too bad

    Wow,Leif Erickson lived a long time,He and his Viking buds found America back around 1000 and then he lived long enough to star in the High Chaparral around 1965 !

    @britecho Also the Magnificent Seven, notice that they’re not just pulling out the banjo and playing a waltz time diddy. This is supposed to sound like grand stuff.

    Oh, I remember “Blue” and his stunning eyes! LOL….

  19. britecho says:

    You know, this tune is very similar to Telstar, by The Tornadoes. Do a comparison and see what you think.

  20. nicedog1 says:

    I havent heard that tune since I was about eight or nine years old on a Monday evening with school in the morning.

  21. newall7 says:

    No western anyone would want to watch would be made today. Our “betters” are busy re-writing history – revisionism canceling Euro-american history and achievement.
