    Davy Crockett is Gone

    I was seven when the show came out. Didn't have a TV then and thought that the title song was about somebody named "Baby" Crockett.

    He also portrayed the father in the classic 1957 Disney film Old Yeller, and shared the screen with giant mutant ants in 1954's Them!

    It's like I keep saying: any movie is enhanced by giant radioactive insects. Just think of how much better Titanic or Love Story would have been if they were over-run by giant ants or at least mutant scorpions......

    I guess we can count the KP short "Roachie" as one of your very favorites then, huh?
    Seriously though, I saw an article about Fess Parker's death in this morning's Chicago Sun-Times as I rode into the city on the train. Another pop culture icon has passed away....
