    Opie Ron Howard.. What was the name of that show?..and the sheriff father why can't I remember his name.

    Lucy's sideckick was Ethel Mertz - Played by Vivian Vance.

    Opie - Played on the Andy Griffith Show. His father's character's name was Andy Taylor. And who could forget Aunt Bea. (Oh Andy!)

    Is it bad that I am 25 and used to watch all of those shows?

    Just thought of another one.... Gene Autry "Home, Home on the Range" One of my wife's favorite westerns.

    Anyone say "Branded"?

    Gabby Hayes was in which western? (Trivia question).

    And Chester ?

    Sure. Hop A Long, Autry, Roy & Trigger, et al

    I learned what it meant to be "yellow-bellied," a "tinhorn" and a "sidewinder"

    If Mulan remembers Seattle TV in the 50's, she prob recalls Stan Boreson and NoMo. And Pinkie Lee.

    hey SP, i'm right there with ya. i do remember watching those shows as reruns on saturday afternoons. we had one tv and after we got home from field service, my dad would flip on the tv. all afternoon we watched those old westerns: the rifleman, big valley, bonanza, have gun will travel, gunsmoke, etc. sometimes now when i get homesick and i can find one on cable i'll watch it.
