Just saw today a Lash Larue marathon on encore tv. When i was very young in the early 50s, I saw Lash on tv and he immediately became my favorite. I never liked Gene Autry....Roy Rogers was ok but his sidekick was awful. Hopalong was good but none had the whip or smart attitude like Lash. He wasn't on very often so it was very special for me to catch one of his rare episodes. I was very athletic but would NOT go outside if Lash and Fuzzy were on.
