Retro TV Friday! The Littlest Hobo

9:00 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy




 Maybe Tomorrow, I'll want to settle down.... Until Tomorrow...I'll just keep moving on!





 The Littlest Hobo is yet another old cheesy Canadian classic TV show that I absolutely loved as a kid!  The show's premise was simple....


1) Smart dog wanders into a complex plot!
2) New family falls in love with the Hobo
 3)  Hobo Saves the day! ( usually by overhearing a sinister plot or reading a secret document.)
4) Said family wants to adopt the Hobo....but the dog never stays. 
5) On to the next town and the next adventure! ( Cue sad theme song!)

The Littlest Hobo really is a good family show and I see that they are playing the old reruns on Saturday Am on CTV!  Nothing like dusting off a 30 year old show for a new generation.

 The theme song brings back the most memories.  It is so powerful that my brother in law used to cry when the show was over because of the theme song.  HA!

 Happy Weekend!

    SA-WEEEEET! My kids love this show. I love to laugh at the "cheeziness" of it. Gotta love the early 80's acting!

    I also used to bawl my eyes out at the end of Hobo. I used to imagine what he must feel like sitting at the end of that dock as the sun went down with no food or family to hug him and keep him warm.... i'm getting choked up STILL
