Product Description

BUSTER CRABBE SHOW

Syndicated (30 min. EACH SHOW)

March 12, 1951 through October 3, 1952



Prior to his playing "Captain Gallant" Buster Crabbe hosted a local NYC based children's film wraparound television series "The Buster Crabbe Show".



The series, set against the backdrop of a ranch foreman's bunk house, featured Crabbe engaging his viewers in games, stories, craftmaking, hobbies, informational segments and interviews with guest performers and personalities in between reruns of old movie serials, westerns and comedies.



"The Buster Crabbe Show" was seen weekday evenings on WOR TV Ch.9 in NYC until 1952. The series returned to the NYC airways on WJZ TV Ch.7 (now WABC) on Monday September 21, 1953 and was retitled "Buster's Buddies!"



The WJZ TV version of the series included a studio audience of kids and became more of a kids' variety show. Despite the addition of the studio audience and Crabbe's personality, "Buster's Buddies!" was not a hit and it was canceled on Friday March 26, 1954.
