Fury (retitled Brave Stallion in syndicated reruns) is an American western television series that aired on NBC from 1955 to 1960.[1] It stars Peter Graves as Jim Newton, who operates the Broken Wheel Ranch in CaliforniaBobby Diamond as Jim’s adopted son, Joey Clark Newton, and William Fawcett as ranch hand Pete Wilkey. Roger Mobley co-starred in the two final seasons as Homer “Packy” Lambert, a friend of Joey’s.[2]

The frequent introduction to the show depicts 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 is the first American series to be produced originally by Television Programs of America and later by the British-based company ITC Entertainment.

Outdoor footage for the series was filmed primarily on the Iverson Movie Ranch in Chatsworth, Calif., throughout the five-season run of the series, with some of the earliest footage for the series shot on the Garner Ranch in Idyllwild, Calif. One episode, “Packy, the Lion Tamer,” which premiered on Jan. 2, 1960, included footage shot at Jungleland USA in Thousand Oaks, California,[3] and occasional footage appearing during the series was shot at Corriganville Movie Ranch near Simi Valley, California.[4]
