Also playing a part in the adventures was Willie’s stubborn mule, Cupcake, who was trained to “burp” on camera.

This show also aired on NBC, from 1955 to 1960. Thunder was part of a 90-minute block of three live action shows to debut on NBC during the 1977 season, along with Search and Rescue: the Alpha Team and The Red Hand Gang.
