MY FRIEND FLICKA
Television Series
1955 - 1958
Set on a Montana ranch around 1900, this was the story of the adventures of young Ken McLaughlin and his horse, Flicka. Debuting on CBS in the Fall line-up of 1955, it was broadcast on Fridays, 7:30 to 8:00 PM. It was filmed in color, but CBS showed it in black and white. The following season, it was picked up by NBC, which began showing it in ‘living’ color. Reruns were broadcast regularly through the 1960’s. It continued appearing in various places over the years, with The Disney Channel including it in their program schedule into the 1990’s.
