Cannonball TV Series 1958 Full Episode Part 1
A full episode of the 1958 TV series known as "CANNONBALL". There were 39
episodes in this series about two truckers, Mike Malone and Jerry Austin.
This episode is in two parts, part two includes "Small Cargo".
Cannonball was created by Robert Maxwell, one of the producers of The
Adventures of Superman and the man responsible for Lassie. The New York
Times reported on July 8th, 1958 that the series would be produced by
Normandie Productions, Ltd. (the Canadian arm of Television Programs of
America) with production set to begin in Toronto on July 14th .
Television Programs of America was responsible for filmed programs like
Private Secretary, Fury, Halls of Ivy and Last of the Mohicans, among
In September of 1958, Television Programs of America and Normandie
Productions were sold to the Independent Television Corporation .
On December 3rd, a full-page advertisement in The New York Times for
Independent Television Corporation called Cannonball a "stirring
human-interest series about truckers on the highway to high adventure" .
It was one of four shows the company had in production for "national sale"
(the others were The Four Just Men, The Adventures of Tom Swift and
Paul Birch and William Campbell starred in Cannonball as Mike Malone,
nicknamed Cannonball, and Jerry Austin, truckers working for C & A
Transport who spent their days driving a big rig across Canada and the
United States. Howard Milsom played Harry Butler, their dispatcher.
Rounding out the cast were Beth Lockerbie, Beth Morris and Steve Barringer
as Mike's wife Mary and his children Ginny and Butch.
The series premiered in Canada on Monday, October 6th, 1958, broadcast by
CBC. Because it was syndicated locally in the United States there was no
nation-wide premiere date. But it appears the show wasn't seen until 1959.
Cannonball premiered in Los Angeles, for example, on Monday, May 18th, 1959
airing on KHJ from 8:30-9PM. In New York City, the series was seen on
Fridays from 7:30-8PM beginning October 16th, 1959. And it aired on WGN-TV
in Chicago from 8:30-9PM (7:30-8PM local time) starting on October 30th,
A total of 39 episodes of Cannonball were produced. In addition to Canada
and the United States, the series was also seen in the United Kingdom. I'm
afraid I don't know who sang the theme song.

Setting the engine up and breaking it in.Remember this engine is just being
started after a rebuild so that's why it's smoking from the assembly lube
and the rack will be set-up to stop the hunting etc etc. Then the oil is
changed and the engine painted. These engine's go into Euclid mining rock
trucks,and they were in many other equipment/vehicles.The engine has
rebuild heads,turbo's, blower, water
pump,all internal parts and the air compressor All done in the great north
