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.

  • 1847 5¢ Benjamin Franklin, red-brown, thin bluish wove paper, imperforate U.S. #1 - First U.S. Postage Stamp

    On July 1, 1847, the first US postage stamps went on sale.  The 5¢ issue of 1847 (US #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, the man responsible for organizing America's postal service back in the 1700s.  Postal clerks used scissors to cut the stamps from sheets, as perforations weren't in use yet.  Today, US #1 is a valued piece of American postal history and a lucky find in any condition.
