Bobby Benson's Adventures
There were a couple of Bobby Benson shows. The first ran from 1932 to 1936 on CBS stations in the east. That first show was known as Bobby Benson and the H-Bar-O Rangers and was sponsored by Heckers H-O cereals. The second, and more famous of the two, was Bobby Benson and the B-Bar-B Riders, which began on Mutual in 1949. The part of Bobby was played by Billy Halop, Ivan Cury and Richard Wanamaker. Tex Ritter played multiple parts such as Rex Mason the foreman on the ranch. From 1951 - 1955 Don Knotts played the part of Windy Wales, ranch handyman.
