One of my all-time favorite actors played a great part in the old Cheyenne series... This "Wide-eyed" characters part in the series was Toothy Thompson... For the key to the outhouse and two broken Miken Ultras, name this man.

She just knew how disappointed you got whenever you were bested and decided it safer to have you play with your dogs cause you were a bit smarter than them..Of course she had to hang that pork chop around your neck so the dogs would play with you..(<:

I'm going to take a wild guess based on the fact that I know this kid was under contract to Disney and it would kind of come under the wow factor - Kurt Russell

The only 3 guys names I could think of that played in those early shows were the 2 I mentioned and a Tim Matheson name pops into my brain.

Not sure that's the valid basis for a guess but the silence is kind of deafening.

Hey guys, just passing throught again. I think we all watched too much TV growing up. However, my family did not have one until I was six in 1955. Worked hard to catch up though. Anyway, Moochie was Kevin Corcoran. I barged in the other day and asked a question about Jock Mahoney. He played Yancey Derringer. What was the name of Yancey's Indian partner?

Much to my surprise, he informed me that he (Michael Ansera) actually was not an american indian at all..
