Bob - so he doesn't miss a meal or a trivia question - - just BP?

Doc seldom misses a trivia question... never misses a meal. In fact, McDonald's should be paying him royalties for the 'Happy Meal' phrase... the man is always happy when he's eating... or hitting HRs... or stepping on our punch lines.
his other nickname is Krispy Kreme... connect the dots, Pete.
He definitely didn't play outside much as a kid... he likes TV trivia like a fat kid likes cake.

You know,Pete, jealousy is a terrible thing to live with and if you know The Wood you know all of this talk is just because HE WISHED he had a finely tuned torso such as mine. The guy is a natural double for howdy doody whose only claim to fame is being able to whistle dixie out his port side...

next question. Back in the late 50's..... A bad-dude texas ranger rounded up the bad guys. His trademark was the song that accompanied his show. " ----- ------ ------ made you do what you oatta and if you didn't you died.." I think those were the words... What was his name in the show and who played him????

I was stumped so I thought I would check Google. There's a website http://www.fiftiesweb.com/western-4.htm
that list most of the westerns of the 50's-60's. There must 40 or 50 of them. Check it out.

Woody.... that is not actually the show I was thinking of. I have not heard of the one you are talking about so perhaps you have knowledge that escapes me. The first two words of the song were "Texas John ------.... hopefully I was not delusional... and my memory is not jumping around on me.

Bruce...thanks for the info...

So this probably means that I'm incorrect AND that I blew the chance to use this one in the future. This seems awfully harsh to me.

Okay, this was on Friday nights. I know this ‘cause I always watched it and was often late for the Monthly Pack meetings for Cub Scouts, lol. It was set in Louisiana, and the main character was always dressed like a gentleman, but loved STICKING IT to the bad guys with his“piece of a meteor”. It had a great opening song and a chorus would sing the background during the scenes, kind of like Wyatt Earp. Please name the character.

Ken... A hard one????? I thought I knew my old westerns but between my buddy and I we could not come up with any ideas on this one. I actually hunted it down using my computer and I do vaguely remember the show. Only because of who played the guy that was supposed to hunt him down (Jim Davis)...If anybody gets this one right they should be applauded. Nice going!!!

Sorry PeteD..... I grew up with my dad watching that show and every night before I went to bed he put on his best Red Skelton face and said "good night and may God bless"

Going to Leave it to Beaver... One of my favorite characters on the show was Eddie Haskel ... Many folks I know claim TheWood has tried to emulate the guy...not sure.. anyway... who played Eddie and after he left the show what new career did he embark on?
