Pinsent joining party for CBC's Forest Rangers

  • Print

TORONTO -- Cast members from 1960s adventure series The Forest Rangers are reuniting to mark the 50th anniversary of the show's debut.

Organizers say they expect more than 250 fans, production staff and actors to attend, including all nine Junior Rangers: known as Pete, Chub, Mike, Gaby, Kathy, Zeke, Danny, Ted and Timmy.

The gathering will take place north of Toronto where the show was originally filmed.

The half-hour CBC series, which also featured Gordon Pinsent as Sgt. Scott, began in September 1963 and is billed as the first Canadian TV series to air in colour.

It ran for three seasons in more than 60 countries and followed the adventures of a gang of resourceful young Canadians who lived in northern Ontario and learned about nature, conservation and friendship.

The reunion is being organized by fan John Deakin and takes place in Kleinburg, Ont., on June 15.
