Series: Wagon Train
Incredibly successful Western series about a group of pioneers heading out west after the American Civil War. The show lasted eight years (1957-62 on NBC, 1962-65 on ABC), thanks in part to the broad range of story lines that its Walking the Earth format provided. These days, however, it's more well-known for being the first two of those five famous words Gene Roddenberry used to pitch Star Trek: The Original Series.

Provides Examples Of:

  • Adventure Towns
  • Actor Existence Failure: Series star Ward Bond unexpectedly died of a heart attack in 1961, necessitating a change to John McIntyre as the new lead. Interestingly, no episode actually deals with Maj. Adams' (Bond's character) leaving/retiring/dying, and so the next episode is McIntyre's character taking over from a tyrranical replacement played by Lee Marvin.
  • Channel Hop
  • Instrumental Theme Tune
  • Syndication Title: Major Adams, Trailmaster (Bond episodes); Trailmaster (post-Bond episodes)
