Whitman TV Books part 2

Here's another batch of Whitman books from my collection.

The Rifleman was one of my favorite TV westerns.  Old Chuck could really handle that Winchester.

Nick Adams was The Rebel.

Everybody remembers Rin Tin Tin, but poor Rinty never quite carved out much of a career under the big lights.

Hey Beav, that fireman looks kinda spooky...

Circus Boy had at least two Whitman books.

Circus Boy was played on TV by Mickey Braddock.  Look closely at that kid monkeying around on the cover.  Yep, Mickey Dolenz of the Monkees.

Before there was Jeff Bridges and 'The Dude', there was Lloyd Bridges in Sea Hunt.

This little buddy is supposed to be one of the more rare Whitman TV books.

Before there was Duckie on NCIS, there was Ilya on the Man From U.N.C.L.E.  Stop swooning girls.

VTTBOTS was another favorite TV show of mine, too bad they didn't use any of the characters on this cover.


  1. Oh boy, I remember those shows. My two older brothers "made" me watch a lot of them, which is why I saw the "boy stuff" lol...

    But I sure do miss those lazy days of summer, watching the old B&W.

    Great collection. =)

  2. Wow - That's quite a collection! But this time, you show two that I DO have - Rinty and The Rifleman - both were my husband's when he was a boy. I will have to dream and hope that some day I will be able to add more of them to my collection.
    I LOVED seeing these!

  3. Oh,the days I spent glued to old TV reruns. Too many to count.

    Collecting these occurred over about 8 years time, frequenting the usual places that have old books. It's funny how one here and two there eventually add up to quite a collection.
