I think I'd be afraid to watch it today. There's something depressing about watching one of your favorite TV shows from your youth and realizing that it wasn't that good after all.  So many of those shows from the '50s haven't aged well. I think it was my love for this show that inspired my parents to get me the Lionel General set for Christmas several years later.

The Casey Jones I grew up with was a Disney animated short film produced in 1950. I caught the full short on my American Legends package film produced by Disney in 2002. But, when I first watched the short on the old Disney Channel, I was so scared of the train crash scene, that it made me hide away from it. Now, I can handle seeing the train crash scene, since I'm 26 years old. But, it is a pain to see Casey's engine wasted to the splintered cab, wheels, and remaining parts.

As a result of my favorite TV show, I also asked for the Lionel General Set in 1959 and got it.
