RB012 The Eviction ofPaand Ma Skunk

 Ranger Bill for late Saturday morning, 6/22/24, is:

RB012 The Eviction of Pa and Ma Skunk

 Texans Arnold Fleming and his family have just bought a house at Goose Lake. But there is a problem. Another family is already living in, or rather under, the Flemings’ house, a family of skunks. The Flemings don’t know what to do or who to ask for help. Luckily, neighbor Abner knows just what to do. He calls in Ranger Bill. But evicting these stinky pests may prove to be much harder than anyone could imagine.

Forgotten RANGER BILL episode info

 As I have mentioned in the past, I have been running the RANGER BILL Club for over 18 years now. Too often I forget some important things that I don't use very often.

Today is one of those days. I was looking at a file stored on the RANGER BILL group on Facebook. The file is "old-Ranger-Bill-Episodes.xls". A kind member of the RB staff in Chicago assembled this spreadsheet with a great deal of important information about the episodes some years ago.

The file contains the episode numbers (RBxxx) followed by the titles, followed by most of the first airing dates. The next column contains the original episode numbers (Rxxx) apparently in their original airing order. As you can see RB001 Twenty Fathoms Under the Sea aired on 5/26/54 and its airing number is R164. R001 (column L and to the right) aired 10/2/50 and was titled Fire in Pendleton Valley 1. R004, 10/23/50, part 1 of 4, for Mystery of the Missing Buffalo, later to become VIPs Visit KP.

R380 may be the last RB episode "Ranger Bill on Educational TV". Most of those 15 minute episodes we've probably never heard. 

Here are some other episodes lost to time:

R166 If Horses Could Talk

R188 The Twenty-third Hour

R109 Knotty Pine's Giant Eagle

R110 Big Ed the Grizzly Bear.

The list goes on. Check it out for yourself. 

And a big THANK YOU to that unknown RB staff member!!!

RB114 The Hardhead

 RANGER BILL has his hands full for early Saturday morning, 6/22/24, with:

RB114 The Hardhead

 Colonel Anders must take a couple of months off for surgery. A man from Washington, George Benton, comes to Knotty Pine to fill in for the colonel. Mr. Benton is rude and expects ALL the rules to be followed to the letter without deviation or exception!!! Bill refuses to follow Mr. Benton's rule book. Benton suspends Bill, and the rangers revolt.

RB152 Birthday Rescue aka Fallen Hunter


Ranger Bill for Friday, June 21, 2024,
RB152 Birthday Rescue aka Fallen Hunter
It’s Henry’s birthday, and the guys give him some wonderful gifts. Meanwhile a lone hunter falls into a small canyon and is badly hurt. No one knows where he is. He will probably die there in the wilderness unless something happens to change his situation. Can Henry’s birthday possibly be a gift of life to a man without hope and alone?
