Animals Run Amuk in Old Movies

Have you ever watched an old movie when a large animal such as a lion, an alligator or a gorilla suddenly appears, bent on killing a person, when you notice it's incredibly fake? It's just a man crawling around inside a really cheesy costume.

How refreshing it would be if the animal was actually real! Well, I watched a show that featured a large, hairy buffalo in which the animal was genuine. And it was the most unexpected show: Wagon Train from the early 1960s. Charlie Wooster even rides Old Grunter . Here is the link, enjoy!

Wagon Train Season 5 Episode 13: "Clyde"

Naturally, I just had to wonder about Clyde. He was too cool. My search turned up a URL about the buffalo, originally called Old Grunter. Here is his story:

"Adventures of a Buffalo"

And you thought old TV movies and shows were just a waste of time!

Used to love watching Wagon Train and I see these are the very old ones.
