Hopalong Cassidy

HOPALONG CASSIDY The Hopalong Cassidy radio program ran from 1948 to 1952, and was based on the popular movie and television series featuring William Boyd as Hopalong Cassidy. Hopalong Cassidy was the star of a series of novels set at the Bar 20 Ranch. They were written by Clarence E. Mulford over a span of 35 years, and had been the basis for a series of 66 movies between 1935 and 1948. The movies were adapted into a television show that originally ran at the same time as the radio program, and the licensing blitz that followed the show's popularity made "Hoppy" into one of the first multimedia sensations. The radio show featured new adventures, as well as adaptations of the popular movies and some of the TV episodes. William Boyd voiced Hopalong Cassidy, and Andy Clyde co-starred as California Carson, Hoppy's sidekick in many of the later movies.
