Back in 2008, Shout! Factory released Hiya, Kids!: A '50s Saturday Morning, a 4-DVD set celebrating the weekend A.M.'s of our youth with episodes from a multitude of legendary shows. 5 years later, Shout! has finally gotten to the P.M. side of the weekend, with their April 9th release of Howdy Kids!: A Saturday Afternoon Western Roundup 3-DVD set. Priced at $24.97 SRP, you can see the package art at the bottom, and just over it is a pre-order link from Amazon. But first here's a studio description, telling you what shows to expect on these discs:
In the 1950s television was new and thrilling. And nothing thrilled audiences like Westerns, which pitted white-hatted heroes against black-hatted villains...a reflection of a time when the world seemed like a simpler place. Looking back, these shows had a significant impact on the children of the first television generation and helped to shape the medium as it increasingly became a part of our culture. "Howdy Kids!! A Saturday Afternoon Western Roundup" is a collection of the best Westerns from the dawn of television. Features classic episodes from these beloved TV shows: The Lone Ranger, Roy Rogers, The Rifleman, Annie Oakley, Adventures of Kit Carson, Cisco Kid, Champion the Wonder Horse, Buffalo Bill Jr., Sgt. Preston, Fury, The Range Rider Adventures of Rick O'Shay, Sky King, and Red Ryder.
