Fury 1955 -1960
Fury (retitled Brave Stallion in syndication runs) is an American Western television series that aired on NBC from 1955–1960, starring Peter Graves as Jim Newton ( who operates the Broken Wheel Ranch in California), Bobby Diamond as Jim's adopted son, Joey Clark Newton, and William Fawcett as ranch hand Pete Wilkey. Roger Mobley co-starred in the three last seasons as Homer "Packy" Lambert, a friend of Joey's.
The frequent introduction to the show depicted the beloved stallion running inside the corral and approaching the camera as the announcer reads: "FURY!..The story of a horse..and a boy who loves him." Fury was the first American series produced originally by Television Programs of America and later by the British-based company ITC Entertainment.
The story begins with a two of young boys fighting on the street. The winner, Joey Clark, walks away and the loser attempts to throw something at him, but it goes through a nearby window. The store owner rushes out and pins the blame on Joey, who has been labeled a troublemaker due to past incidents. Witnessing the incident, rancher Jim Newton follows as Joey is taken before the judge and clears the boy's name. After learning that Joey is an orphan, Newton takes him home with him to the Broken Wheel Ranch and begins adoption procedures.
A typical plot involved a guest star who got into mischief, was rebellious or disorderly and got into trouble because of it, and subsequently was rescued by Fury. In most episodes, Fury would let only Joey ride him, unless the other individual did something for Fury like fix a damaged hoof. In fights, Jim won every time.
