Harry Gibbs - 2007

Having grown up in the Southwest, Harry Gibbs was a natural to play a cowboy on television. KSD-TV hired him to host their children’s show as “Texas Bruce” in the early ‘50s, initially for Dean’s Milk, but later, for a much longer run, Adams’ Dairy. He’d had a little experience in front of the camera co-hosting “Telequiz Calls” on Channel 5. Harry and his trick horse “Trusty” were huge draws of local kids to parades and other personal appearances in the region, and thousands of kids came to the studios to appear on the program. Harry hung up his spurs after 13 years as Texas Bruce and worked as a free-lance commercial talent until the year 2000.
