his beliefs and values[edit]

do you believe that if roy rogers were to come back to the 21st century that his beliefs and values would be able to solidify the american culture? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 165.95.170.241 (talkcontribs) 22:52, 4 December 2004 (UTC)

NO —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.99.54.26 (talkcontribs) !(15:38, 19 April 2007)

YES Edison 22:07, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

YES because he was not a perfect man but because he grew to be a solid father, husband, businessman. One story I heard was that Rogers stopped enjoying an occasional beer (during the height of his TV film popularity) because he was concerned about how his public example might affect the millions of kids who followed him. His values, beliefs are not outdated---our culture is suffering mostly because we have pushed away from sound values.Lindisfarnelibrary (talk) 13:32, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

What was the show about?[edit]

I would appreciate it if someone could add a description of the Roy Rogers Show, e. g. was it humourous or more about adventure, etc. Thanks. Maikel 09:46, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

See The Roy Rogers Show. The IMDB entry is at [1]. [2] gives brief summaries of all the episodes. There was humor, but adventure was the theme, with chases and fights, crooks and rustlers, bankrobbers, spies and swindlers. The sidekicks did lots of broad humor, like Pat Brady saying to his jeep, "Come on, Nellybelle, don't let me down now" or Gabby Hayes, bearded rustic, saying "Yur durn tootin'!" [3] has a brief low res clip of the opening and end of an episode. Edison 22:26, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

Not to be confused with Roy Rogers, slide guitar master[edit]

I removed this Roy Rogers from Category:Slide guitarists, and started a page for Roy Rogers (guitarist). If you notice any links here from album credits (especially where some sort of slide guitar is played) please make any needed corrections! -MrFizyx 05:03, 22 March 2007 (UTC) My Dad is looking for a movie titled, "Old Man and The Kid". He claims this is a Roy Rogers Movie, but I can not find it anywhere. Did my Dad get the Title or the Actor wrong?Saltnlight 23:39, 28 June 2007 (UTC)saltnlight

Fair use rationale for Image:Bellsofrosarita1.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Bellsofrosarita1.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Consumate Killer[edit]

It would increase the viability of the article to mention RR's museum (now closed) in Victorville, and, Roy's desire to kill two of every animal from shrew to elephant and beyond.

It might also be relevant to produce information about his treatment of indigenous people, especially the eskimo of Kotzebue, Alaska and various African natives.

This article seems to portray this complex and not necessarily pleasant person in a one dimensional sketch.

I would agree to a certain extent, certainly the article should include "warts and all". Apparently the museum was just moved to Branson MO (there is a link to the museum website). I visited the one in Victorville several years ago at the insistence of some family members and about all I remember (other than the stuffed Trigger) is thinking it was a monument to a big ego. I don't know anything about his "desire to kill" or his treatment of indigenous peoples but if there are reliable sources and it is presented in a NPOV manner feel free to add it.

Hopefully whoever edits this section includes sound references. And hopefully the editing is impartial and is not merely imposing an early 21st century viewpoint on this man who was of his time.Lindisfarnelibrary (talk) 13:34, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

The contents of the Roy Rogers Museum were auctioned off less than six years after its relocation to Branson, MO from Victorville, CA. The aucton was held in July, 2009, with many items sold off to private bidders. RFD TV was the high bidder on the taxidermied Trigger and Bullet the dog. This is a good article, but needs updating.

Cincinnati to Portsmouth[edit]

A houseboat can't "float" from Cincinnati to Portsmouth as the current flows in the opposite direction.

Wives[edit]

In his infobox, it lists 2 spouses - however there is a third spouse listed in the text. I would add it to the box myself but I am unsure how to do this. Maladroitmortal (talk) 17:44, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

Happy Trails to You[edit]

I have heard Michael Martin Murphy explain that Happy Trails to You has a deep meaning because it was written in tribute to the death of their daughter, who suffered from Down Syndrome. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.61.136.5 (talk) 17:58, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
