The Gunsmoke radio version ran from 1952 to 1961 and, according to John Dunning, amongst old-time radio fans, “Gunsmoke is routinely placed among the best shows of any kind and any time.”
The television version ran from 1955 to 1975 and is the longest running prime time drama and the second-longest running prime time fictional program in U.S. television history, its record surpassed only by the Disney anthology television series and Hallmark Hall of Fame.
Comic books based on the series were also published. Dell Comics put out five issues of their Four Color Comics series on Gunsmoke (issues #679, 720, 769, 797, 844). This was followed by Gunsmoke #6–27 (1958–62). Gold Key Comics continued it with #1–6 in 1969–70.
