soft-spoken paragon of virtue on the range, Hopalong Cassidy brought law, order, and justice to the frontier. He was a model of integrity, courage, hard work, tolerance, patriotism, chivalry, and good-natured decency - and he attempted to instill these values in his young listeners - all while delivering action-packed entertainment. Cassidy, the creation of Clarence E. Mulford, who dreamed of the West he had never visited, was brought to life by former silent-movie matinee idol William Boyd.
For decades a popular hero of novels, short stories, and movies, Hopalong Cassidy became a seemingly overnight entertainment phenomenon when he burst in to the new medium of television in 1949. Shortly thereafter, he moseyed over to his very own radio series.

The announcer says, "The ring of the silver spurs heralds the most amazin' man ever to ride the prairies of the early West," and you're swept away to dangerous days on the wild frontier. But you're in good hands with straight-shooter Hopalong Cassidy (played by William Boyd) and his comical sidekick, California Carlson.
