Let's take the "heat" off this person and start another conversation line going. Hugs and Kisses to the first person who (without looking this up anywhere) can answer this one. Anybody remember Yancy Derringer played by Jock Mahoney ( who later "grew up to play Tazan in the movies?) OK. If so, here is the question. What was the name of the actor who played the role of Yancy's American native quiet "sidekick"? Interesting. I can remember the name of the actor but I cannot remember the name of the character he played. This may be a version of selected memory. LOL.

I may be answering this, a lot. Mea culpa, it was Guy Williams. My (really) bad.

You are, to quote Supertramp, "Right, Right, you're bloody well right." My brain cramp. Thanks for catching it and being genteel in correcting me.

I thought Guy  Williams played Zorro too.  Anybody out there remember Sheriff of Cochise with John Bromfield. I emember an episode which featured Charles Bronson.  He might have ec]ven been billed at that time as Charles Buchinsky.  HA! HA!  What fun remembering what good TV watching was like.

I thought Guy Williams was Zorro. I remember Guy Madison playing Wild Bill Hickock, with Andy Divine playing his sidekick, Jingles, his Deputy. "Wild Bill Hickock! Wait for me!"

Dragons3 has opened a sub-heading with Davy Crockett. Disney shows based on real life heroes:

"Davy Crockett" (Fess Parker, later "Daniel Boone" - can't forget that one, either.)

"The Swamp Fox" (Leslie Nielsen, who also sang the title song.)

"Elfego Baca" (Robert Loggia)

and, of course, the heroes we wish had lived:

"The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh" (Patrick McGoohan)

"Zorro" (Guy Madison (et al) Smiley Wink )

Agter 'car 54, where are you' folded, Fred Gwynn and Al lewis got roles in the 'Munsters' along withj Yvonne de carlo, Butch patrick amd Beberly oeen and later Pat Priest.  the Munsters, a somewhat funny show about a rather odd family Herman, who looked like Frankenstein, played by Fred Gwynn, Lily, played by Yvonne de Carlo,(the 10 Commandments), Al lewis, as grandpa, the vampire, Butch Patrick, as Eddie, looked like a warlock and Beverly Owen and later Pat Priest, as Marilyn.  Marilyn was the only one who looked normal yet was a perfect contrast.  I don't remember the 'Munsters' having a them,e with lyrics, just music.  Much better i think was 'The Addams' family, with John Astin as Gomez, Carolyn Jones as his wife Morticia, Lida Loring, as daughter Wednesday, Ken Weatherwax as odd son Pugsley, Blossom Rock as grandmama, and Jackie Coogan as Uncle Fester.  We can't forget Morticia's aunt played by 'wicked witch of the west', Margaret Hamilton and Felix Silla, who looked like a small walking haystack and of course Ted Cassidy, as Lurch, the butler.  The 'Addams' family had a theme song, thus:

 

Da,da,da,da, click, click, da, da,da,da, click, click, da, da, da,da, da, da, da,

da, da, da, da, click, click,

 

They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky,they're altogether ooky,

the Addams family,

Their house is a museum, when people come to see 'em, they really are a scream,

Neat, sweet, petite,

So gathjer with your shawl on. we're goin' to pay a call on,

the Adams family, click, click!

the Addams family,

the Addams family

Anyone remember the theme song from tthe Beverly Hillbillies.

Come an listen to my story about a man named Jed,

a poor mountaineer who barely kept his family fed,

then one day he was shootin' at some food,

and up from the ground came 'a bubbling crude,

oil that is,

black gold, Texas tea,

well the first thing ya' know ole' Jeds a millionaire,

kin folks said "Jed move away from there",

said Californiy's the place ya' ought to be,

so they loaded up the truck, and moved to Beverly,

Hills that is,

Swimmin' pools, movie stars,

The Beverly Hillbillies

 

This show created by Paul Henning was great if not corny and the first of two hits.  Those being the spin offs 'Petticoat Junction, with Bea Benadaret,as Kate Bradley, Edgar Buchanan, as uncle Joe Carson and Meredith Mcrea, as Billie Jo, Lori Sanders, as Bobbi Jo and Gunilla Hutton as Betty Jo Badley,

anyone remeber the theme song for this show?

 

Come and ride the little train rollin' down the tracks to the junction, 

Petticoat Junction,

Forget about your cares, it is time to relax at the junction,

Petticoat Junction,

Lotsa curves, you bet, 'n even more when you get to the junction,

Petticoat Junction

There's a little hotel called the 'Shady Rest' at the junction,

Pettticoat Junction,

It is ruin by Kate, come and be her guest at the Junction,

Petticoat Junction,

And that's uncle Joe, he' s a  movin' kind 'a slow at the junction,

Petticioat Junction,

Then two train whistles, whoo, whoo!

 

And, last but not least:

Green Acres, with Eddie Albert, as Oliver Douglas, high power NY attorney and gentleman farmer who knew **bleep** about farming but wanted to 'find' himself, his lovely wife Lisa, played by Eva Gabor, Pat **bleep** as Mr. Haney, the shyster who sold the Douglass' the run down down farm to Oliver and Lisa Douglas, Tom Lester, as En, their hired hand, dumb as a bucket of rocks yet somehow funny, Alvy Moore, the bumbling county agent Mr. Kimball and finally Sid Melton and Mary Grace Canfield, as Alf and Ralph, the incompetent 'handypersons' who try their darndest and always fail to remodel and repair the farm. Mary Grace Canfield, as some may recall, played meddling neighbor Mrs. Kravitz on 'Bewitched', while Sid Melton was on 'Make room for Daddy' starring Danny Thomas, as Charlie Harper, Danny's agent at the Copa  nightclub .

 

And last but not least, 'Green acres',  Anyone remember their theme song:

 

Green Acres is the place to be,

farm livin' is the life for me,

land speadin' out so far and wide,

keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside,

 

New York is where i'd rather stay,

I get allergic smelling hay,

I just adore a penthouse view,

dah-ling I love you but just give me Park Avenue,

 

The chores, (Oliver)

The stores, (Lisa)

Fresh air, (Oliver)

Times Square, (Lisa)

 

You are my wife,

Good bye city life,

Green Acres we are there.!!

 

These shows albeit corny, were go to's for evening television viewers in the 1960's to the very early 1970's.  This has been a great jounney down memory lane not just for me but for many!
