    It's an Australian DVD company. Rawhide is released by ViaVision, which is somehow affiliated with Madman:

    Can anyone who has seasons 5 and 6 confirm that all the episodes are there? Season 4 was missing an episode and I was hoping that it may have been included on the season 5 set. Unfortunately the listings for these don't tell you which episodes are on. Thanks!

    I hope the 7th Season is released soon, because along with Season 8 (the one in which Rowdy Yates started his own cattle drive after Gil Favor called it quits) I've seen just one or two episodes each from. The 7th year has the most impressive opening: with statuette busts of Eastwood and Fleming in the opening credits! The final season has an improved version (remix) of Frankie Laine's theme but visually is less impressive with an animated opening of the cattle.

    To Wes: All of the episodes are there on all of the sets released so far.

    Jeff - thanks for that. Do you know if the missing Season 4 episode ('Abilene' mentioned on the first page of this thread) is on any of these sets?

    It should be. The cover art reads "The Complete Fourth Season".
    "Abilene" was the season finale, where they reach the end of that particular cattle drive.

    Thanks, Doug. I actually have the season 4 set (where it most definitely should be there, but is not). Unfortunately you cannot always go by the press releases for dvd sets, but I am happy it was included on the later set.

    OK, I wasn't aware that was put on the 5th Season set here in the U.S.

    The Australian release had it on the 4th Season set, which is what I was referring to.

    Oh dear. I am referring to the Australian season 4 release - I have it in my hands right now and the episode 'Abilene' is not there.
    It might be the case that they reissued the set with that missing episode on, but as Doug mentions it is on the Australian Season 5 release.

    My mistake then. :) Then it must be the American release that has that episode where it should be.
    I've seen most of these episodes before and that includes all of the early years. So I didn't buy any of these for my collection.

    Why did the Australian release mess that up, delaying that particular episode to the volume after it?

    CBS/Paramount are just about to release Season 4 Volume 1 this week in the USA, so the episode will be on the second volume (and no release date for that yet, I believe). With the Australian release it just seemed to be an omission (although an important one!). It's mentioned a couple of times on the first page of this thread.

    Just Found Another Mistake, The First 4 Episodes Of Series 5 Disc 1 Are Incident Of The Portrait, Incident Of El Toro, Incident Of The Hunter, Incident Of The Cactus Wells, While Portrait And Hunter Are In The Wrong Order The Incident Of El Toro Is Episode 26 In Season 6, It Would Be Interesting To Find Out How They Could Make a Mistake Like That.

    The order for much of this series doesn't really matter is why. "Incident of El Toro" I remember from watching in the 90s on the fX channel. It was filmed in 1962, which would be early in the 5th Season. CBS delayed its original airing until early 1964, which is late in the 6th Season. The only thing different between many of the seasons was the opening visual during Frankie Laine's theme song.

    The first noteable exception is the 3-part story arc in the middle of the 3rd Season when the drive ends, and Favor travels by railroad back East to Philadelphia to reunite with his ex-wife and their two daughters. There were some years when the season finale was when the drive reaches its destination. WAGON TRAIN did a much better job in that department, as its season premieres always started in St. Joseph, Missouri and the finales reached Sacramento, CA. RAWHIDE travelled from Sedalia to Abilene.

    The short 8th Season of RAWHIDE (late 1965), meanwhile, is really the one to see in order after the first 7 years, which still had Clint Eastwood but not Eric Fleming with new regular drovers added (played by Raymond St. Jacques and starting in the second episode John Ireland), but then there were plenty of individual episodes before that when Rowdy temporarily took over the herd from Gil Favor.

    I'm not sure how I'll respond to that 8th season once it rolls around (whether that be via CBS/P in R1, the R4 sets, or by capturing the show off Encore Westerns). I'm not a fan of cast changes at all and so I might just stop at Season 7. I'll want to see a few episodes before I commit to an entire season (even a shortened one).

    I would get it just for Eastwood! RAWHIDE worked just as well without Eric Fleming. Somehow I don't think Eric turning up as the lead guest star on an episode of BONANZA that season (and a 2-part BONANZA the following year) had anything to do with RAWHIDE's lower ratings.

    There are several reasons to respect Clint Eastwood, and one of them is he sticks with something to the end. Even with this TV series between seasons he went to Spain to work on the first 2 Fistful of Dollars movies for Sergio Leone......only to come back and keep doing RAWHIDE until it was cancelled.

    Fleming didn't renew his TV contract. So what happened? A year & 1/2 after quitting this show and working with Doris Day in "The Glass Bottom Boat", he drowned making an obscure adventure film in Peru.

    I am so happy that the 6&7 season will be release this year .I have the other seasons and have been waiting so long for the new ones. I don't care about season 8 ., because when eric fleming was gone I didn't watch it. I loved Gil Favor and still do.
