Early Television Memories
Hopalong Cassidy

Issue Date: August 11, 2009
City: North Hollywood, CA

“When I was a kid, every Saturday we’d go to see ‘Hopalong Cassidy’ flicks and watch his shows.  Oh, he was so handsome, with his white hair and he’d always do what was right.  I loved his horse, Topper.  But he never kissed the girl.  It was so tame compared to today, but I’d still rather my grandkids watch it.  It was corny, but fun.” – Joyce P.

In early television, heroes wore white and bad guys wore black – a simple, but effective imagery.  Not so for Hopalong Cassidy.  In the rough-and-tumble West, black-clad Cassidy was a model of virtue.  He didn’t drink, smoke, or swear.  He was always polite to the ladies, and used proper grammar.  He had gleaming white hair even as a young man, and wore a black hat.  “Hoppy” and his companions protected folks from cattle rustlers and outlaw gangs, providing a standard of decency in the untamed West that was also a model for his young, modern viewers.
