A Classic !

The Buck Shot Show was a long-running local children’s television series that aired on CFCN Television in Calgary, Alberta, Canada from 1967 to 1997. From 1967 to 1992 it was a daily program, airing at noon. From 1992 to 1997 it aired Saturday and Sunday mornings. At the time of its cancellation it was the longest-running children’s TV show in Canadian history.

The show’s host, the avuncular, cowboy-hatted Buck Shot, was played by Calgary entertainer Ron Barge. Other characters included Benny the Bear, Clyde the Owl and Farley, all performed by puppeteers Jim Lewis and Phil Gordon-Cooper.

Theme music for the series was “The Elephant Never Forgets”, a playful version of Beethoven’s “Turkish March” in 1967 by electronic music pioneers Perrey and Kingsley.
