How many Rawhide characters can you name?

Do you know all the names of this cattle-drivin’ crew?

The explosion of TV Westerns in the late 1950s brought all kinds of cowboys, lawmen and gamblers to the airwaves. Some shows were canceled after only one or two seasons but others found success. One show in the latter category was Rawhide. It ran for eight seasons and aired over 200 episodes. It also happened to launch the career of one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Clint Eastwood.

Can't say I remember the last one at all, but I also didn't know Joe's last name. I started watching Rawhide about 4 years ago and it is one of my favorite old shows.

And why not jettison the cartoons and bring back Trackdown.

Diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks, as they say. Lots of folks (like me) like the cartoons fine.

I enjoy the cartoons. I wish The Jetsons was on more frequently. It was one of my favorites as a kid.

Wishbone was not a nickname, it was the surname of George Washington Wishbone. And the wrangler's name was spelled Hey Soos, not Jesus.
Heavenly70 peahyams37 6 months ago
Exactly right.
