Champion the Wonder Horse

Champion with Gene Autry

produced by Gene Autry

The exploits of Champion, a wild stallion who befriends twelve year-old Ricky North (Barry Curtis) in the American Southwest in the 1880's. Although Ricky, who lived on his Uncle Sandy's (Jim Bannon) ranch, had a magnetic attraction for trouble, he was always rescued by the wonder horse, aided by the boy's other bosom companion, German shepherd dog, Rebel.

Trivia: Although Frankie Laine made a recording of the 'Champion the Wonder Horse' theme, it was Mike Stewart who sang the theme for the introduction and over the credits of the series, due to Frankie Laine's unavailablility for the recording session.
