Description by OLDIES.com:

The dark-garbed Hopalong Cassidy was a wildly popular matinee idol of the '30s and '40s and one of the most iconic cowboy heroes of all time. Astride his white steed Topper with a black, 10-gallon hat perched on his head, Hopalong (so named for a limp caused by a bullet wound) made a striking figure.

Based on a rude, tough-talkin' character from a popular pulp fiction series, the "Hoppy" of the silver screen was a law-abiding good guy who didn't smoke, drink, chew tobacco or swear; rarely kissed a girl; and always let the bad guy draw first.

William Boyd starred in an amazing 66 "Hoppy" feature films between 1935 and 1948, until westerns began to decline in popularity in theaters. Boyd turned to the newfangled medium of television and the show (1952-54), the first western series on TV, was a hit, sparking all new interest in the cowboy hero.

The Hoppy craze - which spanned nearly two decades ? was so fierce it spawned more than 2,500 products, including comic books, lunch boxes (the first to bear a licensed image), costumes, wind-up toys, action figures, watches, radios and even a theme park and radio show.

Hoppy graced the covers of Look, Life and Time and the show's success inspired other family-friendly TV westerns, including "The Gene Autry Show" and "The Roy Rogers Show."

At Hoppy's side are some of Hollywood's most-famous loyal sidekicks, Red Connors (Edgar Buchanan), Lucky Jenkins (Rand Brooks/Russell Hayden), Windy Halliday (George "Gabby" Hayes) and California Carlson (Andy Clyde).

Now own this special collector's set, Hopalong Cassidy: The Complete Television Collection, including all 52 TV episodes - as well as a special bonus of 10 of Hoppy's finest movies from the pinnacle of his film career - digitally remastered and sound enhanced for supreme picture and audio quality!

Also included is a 67-minute bonus documentary, Public Hero #1, from Starz Encore's Western Channel, featuring Hoppy's widow Grace Bradley, a femme fatale of the silver screen in the '30s and '40s; actor Dennis Weaver; and renowned film critic and historian Leonard Maltin.
