The Happy Wanderers was a weekly television travel log (travelogue) sponsored by the Southern California Ford Dealerships. The show focused on the backroad-ramblings of a jovial character named Slim Barnard and his wife Henrietta, they motored throughout the southwestern United States in search of adventure and beautiful scenery. And each week they produced a wonderfully artistic map of their travels which was available only at your local Ford dealership. The clever marketing idea was for families to visit the dealer to pick up their personal copy of the map and get acquainted with all the new Fords.

These original Travelogues are very hard to find today because most were written on, torn, trashed, used as a napkin on one of these trips, etc.
