    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 [1]. Television Programs of America was
    responsible for filmed programs like Private Secretary, Fury, Halls
    of Ivy and Last of the Mohicans, among others.In September of 1958,
    Television Programs of America and Normandie Productions were sold
    to the Independent Television Corporation [2].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 [3]. 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
    Interpol Calling).Paul Birch and William Campbell starred in
    Cannonball as Mike Malone, nicknamed Cannonball, and Jerry Austin,
    truckers working for C amp; 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 Mikes 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 wasnt seen until 1959.
    Cannonball premiered in Los Angeles, for example, on Monday, May
    18th, 1959 airing on KHJ from 830-9PM. In New York City, the series
    was seen on Fridays from 730-8PM beginning October 16th, 1959. And
    it aired on WGN-TV in Chicago from 830-9PM (730-8PM local time)
    starting on October 30th, 1959.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. Im afraid I dont know
    who sang the theme song.Works Cited1 Shepard, Richard F. Networks
