I loved the opening to this show. That lonesome bugle and the 20-mule team hauling borax out of Death Valley. This western anthology series ran for almost 600 episodes and was as comfortable as an old shoe. Since it was a syndicated program, television stations could show Death Valley Days whenever they wanted, but I seem to remember watching it on saturday afternoons. "The Old Ranger" would introduce the story, and it always involved the legends and pioneers of Death Valley. Not too many big-name actors appeared on this series, but that's okay because the story was the star.
One other tidbit that folks remember about this show were the commercials for Boraxo hand soap, usually presented by Rosemary DeCamp.
