More Memory Lane: ‘Fury’

(Thanks to Linda for reminding me of this great old TV show.)

It’s almost inconceivable that a kids’ TV show like Fury would be made today: the story of a troubled orphaned boy and a wild, untameable horse–and how the boy and the horse bring love and healing to each other.

This show, starring a young and not-yet-famous Peter Graves ( Mission: Impossible), took off in 1955 and ran until the child star, Bobby Diamond, started shaving. Looking in my box of toy animals, I find I have an awful lot of horses, especially shiny black ones: Fury surrogates, one and all.

Go ahead, tell me the kids’ stuff that we’ve got now is better.

I won’t believe you.

  1. Oh, Lee, thank you so much! This brought tears to my eyes – just like it did when I was a little girl. What a wonderful heartening show this was. Nothing like this for our children today, sadly.

  2. I vaguely remember watching this. But I probably did along with Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone, The Lone Ranger. I was a real tomboy. What I wanting at that time to be when I grew up was something that was a cross between Davy Crockett and the American Indian. Loved that stuff!
