NPR aired an old interview of him yesterday.. I got tickled when he said he was more popular than Elvis.. Very Happy. The crazy thing is, he probably was for a good long time...
Remember a lot of folk back in the day thought elvis was of the devil and refused to listen to him..

Davey Daaaaay Vee Crocket, king of the wild frontier.

Sad

Brings back lots of memories. I used to wear a "coon" hat with the tail as a kid. Wrestled bears with my rubber knife and had a cap gun musket.

In thinking back I don't believe I ever missed an episode. Fess was one of my heroes. The only downside is when I first saw the real Alamo in the downtown area and not out on the plains as shown on the TV show. Laughing

One of my favorite shows as a kid, and I too had a coon-skin hat and wrastled bears and hunted buffalo and fended off mountain lions and tracked outlaws when I wore it.

He was also my hero,I was 9 years old when that show aired.I don't think we owned
a T.V. set yet,but I watched it by my friends house.We used to sing that song over and
over again until our parents got irritated at us.America was a better place then in every
way.

I don't remember the Davy Crockett series. I remember "Daniel Boone was a man...just a bigggg man...".
