Buckskin Trivia

There were a couple of unique features of the Buckskin TV show. First, its stories of the old West were told through the eyes of a 10-year-old boy. Secondly, viewers met many different types of people of the day who were on their way from one place to another rather than just the residents who had settled in a town or on farms/ranches.

Repeats of the Buckskin TV show were aired during the summer of 1965, a full six years after the series ended.

Buckskin actually premiered in July of 1958, two and a half months before most of the other series! By September it was moved from its initial 9:30PM time slot on Thursday nights to 7:30PM on Fridays. It had to compete with "The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin" on ABC and with "Your Hit Parade" on CBS at that time. In January of 1959 it moved to Mondays at 7:30PM with no major competition but it was still canceled due to poor ratings at the end of the season. Apparently, a relatively peaceful western seen through the eyes of a young boy didn't appeal to enough western fans.
