The program labeled RB009 is actually “Bim the Dog” (program #104) instead of “Ben the Dog”. I caught this reading the script. I am now updating the spreadsheet with the original program numbers and dates when available. By the way, Ranger Bill ran with the quarter-hour format starting with program #1 which aired on Monday afternoon October 2, 1950 at 4:45pm up through program #103 that was recorded on September 22, 1952 and was aired the following Monday afternoon, September 29, 1952 at 4:45pm. Ranger Bill #104 was the first program to air in the new half-hour format with a new airing date on Saturday afternoon. The first half-hour length Ranger Bill program (#104) was recorded on Wednesday, October 1, 1952 at 6:15pm and aired three days later on Saturday, October 3 at 12:30pm. Attached is a copy for your enjoyment. Please share it with the group! Have a great day!

Right below the Bim file is another document Phil sent. This paper seems to be a proposal sheet outlining some possible Ranger Bill characters. The paper describes Bill, Henry and Col. Anders. It also mentions a little girl who was not used and also an old timer Jed who may have developed into Stumpy. The file is called WMBI RB characters.
