Okay, okay, I was startin' to have second thoughts about him when that eraserhead thing appeared about 8,000 times (though 8,001--"Jaybro Kicks Ass"--buckled me) but THIS has to be one of the best OT threads ever. It's Donny's "Slaughterhouse Five".

I remember when Purnell Roberts announced that he was leaving the show because he didn't want to ever act like a "child" reporting to Papa in such a "demeaning" roll. I also rememeber that my own Dad was outraged by such a decision. I said" "But, Daddy, he is right. His role IS demaning." My, Dad, ever one be conservative with a penny, told me sternly that he was quite sure the money he (Purnell) was making was NOT in anyway demaning.

I wonder if families still watch TV together? We used to go to the movies together as a family, also.

When did Ponderosa become Bonanza? There's something in my memory banks that says that there was something like that.

When did Ben Cartwright quit riding a horse and piloting a starship?

I'm confused.

Davy Crockett could outdraw them all.

The following stanza begins the twenty-stanza ballad:

Born on a mountain top in Tennessee,
Greenest state in the land of the free.
Raised in the woods so's he knew every tree,
Killed him a b'ar when he was only three.
Davy, Davy Crockett
King of the Wild Frontier

Edit: Now that I've provided you all with ear candy for the day, the other nineteen stanzas seem unnecessary.

Dan Blocker, in addition to being the Father of Slacklining, moved to Europe out of disgust for US policy in Viet Nam. A true Renaissance man.

I'm pretty sure I speak for everyone when I state that a Dan Blocker tribute thread is FAR overdue.

Let's get one going here quick.
