Trivia

The series was shot on the set of the John Ford western Fort Apache (1948). See more »

Goofs

The adventures happen in the 1869-1877 period as we can see president Grant in Season 2, Episode 7. The German Shepherd is a relatively new breed of dog, with their origin dating to 1899 so the whole series is an historical mistake. See more »

Alternate Versions

Towards the end of the 1970s nostalgia boom, this series was re-released in sepia-tone, with new color wraparounds featuring James Brown in character as Lt. Masters, "telling" each installment's story to a group of children. See more »

Yoooooohhhhh Rinty
29 November 1998 | by RamarSee all my reviews

Adventure packed story after story. Rusty gets into a danger situation and Rin Tin Tin saves him, either by himself or by going back to Fort Apache to get Lt. Rip Masters and/or Sgt O'Hara and Corporal Boone to save him. It was a must see for 5 years on Friday nights on ABC, than afternoon re-runs and Saturday morning re-runs for years.
