Little Star Wars Tidbit
« on: April 25, 2017, 07:09:01 AM »

What does The Forest Rangers have to do with Star Wars? The Forest Rangers was a Canadian Television series that ran from 1963 to 1965.  It was produced by CBC & ITC Entertainment.   It's claim to fame is that it was Canada's first television show produced in colour.

Yes Biggs was in an episode and his younger brother had starring role in the series. I was actually at the last big reunion for the show with all my family in 2013.   The reunion occurred at the actual studio it was shot at and most of the cast members were there.  I was able to purchase a signed copy of one of the episode scripts. It was signed by most of the cast members.  I think the script was for the episode "The Haunted Island."

As a kid, this show and BattleStar Galactica, Space 1999 and the Canadian TV show Starlost were some of my favourite TV shows.

Brinn, I keep getting inspired by your signature section.  How did you add the BRINN 71?
