Subject : Littlest Hobo - missing episodes
A short note on a couple episodes you are missing from the first series.
I used to live in West Vancouver and appeared as a bit player in two
episodes.
I stumbled across a couple scripts used in the filming ...
July 27, 1964
'LITTLE BOY BLUES'
story Idea by Joan Hind-Smith
Teleplay by Barbara and Milton Merlin
'PROD #8'
There are modifications made to the script indicated by blue sheets
'Rev.28 Aug/64'
The second script is a mimeograph copy with
'THE OLD MAGIC' By N.B. Stone, Jr.
I can't remember what they were about and haven't read the scripts
yet. Yours,

Terry Wright

Was "Maybe Tommorow" always the theme to the Littlest Hobo, I seem to
recall a different tune from my younger years, I can only remember a
small piece of this tune but maybe it will ring a bell with you, it went
"And I know I hungered to be free,
Roaming is the only life for me,
Im traveling along the way
Im traveling along the way without end".

Maybe you know this song?,
I was so sure it was from the Littlest Hobo.

VCI Entertainment has released 12 episodes of "The Littlest Hobo" on DVD
THE LITTLEST HOBO TV SERIES - COLLECTION 1 (1963)
Running Time 300 minutes /Format B&W
Languages English/ Aspect Ratio 1.33:1
MPAA Rating - Unrated/ DVD Encoding 2 DVD-9s
DVD Audio Dolby Digital Mono/ Region NTSC/All Region


Filmed in Canada, THE LITTLEST HOBO TV series was originally broadcast in 1963
in black and white, aired for three seasons and then made a noteworthy comeback
to even heavier syndication in 1979, this time in color. The show was so popular
that it ran until 1985. THE LITTLEST HOBO was one of the few shows on TV to
feature something other than a human regular as the star. That unique star - a
profoundly intelligent stray German shepherd named Hobo (real name - London)
wanders around helping people resolve their crises, and leaving them forever
changed in the process. Boundless warmth, humor and suspense combine to make
this 12 episode TV collection involving a captivating canine's adventures, a
remarkably touching and memorable experience for the entire family.

DVD FEATURES
The first three episodes in the series are available in color for the very first time!
As a bonus, the theme song from the series, "Road Without End" by Ronald Stein
and sung by Randy Sparks, is available as a separate selection.
