The First Fury And Joey Website
Fury, a contemporary western ran from 1955 -1960 with a
114 episodes, although there is information claiming there was well over 150
episodes this is incorrect.
Jim had captured Fury a wild stallion after three years of trying, and Pete his foreman named him during a conversation where Pete said the horse was full of "Fire and Fury." Joey soon made friends with Fury, and was the only person who was able to ride him after saving his life. Later Fury was known to let others ride him, but only with Fury's permission.
Each episode took Joey and Fury to new adventures, along with his two pals Pee Wee and Packy. The show ran in syndication from 1960 until 1966 under the name "Brave Stallion."
The pilot and the first several episodes of Fury were filmed near Idlyllwild, CA. There was a scripted fire in episode #5 "Scorched Earth", in which the Broken Wheel Ranch burned down. That is when they moved the filming to Upper Iversons Movie Ranch north of Chatsworth, CA., and Spahn Ranch. Interior scenes were filmed at the KTTV TV lot in Hollywood, which are now the Metromedia studios located at Sunset and the Hollywood freeway. The TV show "Jeff's Collie starring Tommy Rettig was also filmed at the same studio on the stage across from Fury's.
Saturday mornings where the best time of the week when you were a kid back in the 50's. There were great shows on to watch like *Fury, Sky King, Jungle Jim, *Tugboat Annie, *Lassie, *Ramar Of The Jungle, The Lone Ranger, Roy Rogers, Cisco Kid, My Friend Flicka, Casey Jones, Adventures of Champion Hopalong Cassidy and many many more. I miss those days, and wish that programs like these could be on Television once again for the kids of today. All of these shows taught lessons on how to treat people and what was right and wrong. No one back then ever thought to talk back to his or her parents, and they treated adults with the respect they so truly deserved.
I have started this site because it seems that Fury has been lost and forgotten in time. There is not much left on the show, but what I find will be posted here. So for those who remember the show, sit back and enjoy. For those who have never heard of Fury, it will be a new experience and one I hope you will all enjoy......

What People Are Saying About This Site
Congratulations on your "Fury" web site. I'm proud to be a part of it because that was a mighty show and should not be forgotten.
This is what makes the children who grew up in the fifties different from the ones today. The manners and respect we saw on TV only reinforced what we were being taught in school and at home. Great site.
Can't thank you enough for this site. I have been searching for years to find somebody who remembered Fury. This show was the highlight of my childhood. I still have my plastic model that I put together of him. Have been waiting for them to put re-runs on TV. Thank you thank you thank you!
I too grew up during those wonderful days of the TV cowboy. I would faithfully watch them all dreaming of the day I might have a horse of my own and always wanting to live on a ranch. It took a very long time to make the dream come true, but I have it now and have never forgotten the shows that planted the seed. Thanks for bringing back the memories where I can actually see them.
This site is wonderful! I remember watching Fury when I was little. What a great show it was, and taught us so much. I am glad also to know what happened to Roger Mobley. I had such a crush on him. Thank you so much.

I am so glad I found this site. Great job by the way! Watching Fury is one of my best childhood memories. I watched it every morning before school and on Saturday mornings before the rest of the family woke up. I wish they would start running the show again because it is a true classic! Ah, the memories.
Just wanted to let you know how great it was to find a Fury site!
