'Crockett,' 'Boone' actor Fess Parker dead at 85
Fess Parker, best known for playing Daniel Boone in a 1960s television series, died Thursday at his home near Santa Barbara, California, his publicist said.


I remember his portrayal of both characters when I was a kid.

They had a bit on that on NPR this afternoon, which I listened to.

It brought back childhood memories, but they played the theme song to Davy Crockett show, and I couldn't help thinking about how very racist the lyrics were-- but hey, it was the 50's...

...and yeah, I watched both series with avid devotion as a kid.
