Davy Crockett Tidbits

This could rightly be called the first miniseries of all time. Under the Walt Disney banner, Davy captured the hearts of both young and old. The show was also a merchandising pioneer as coonskin caps sold like hotcakes. About 100 million dollars worth. The idea of selling tie-ins from a show is accepted practice now but it wasn't back then!

What's curious about this is that Davy Crockett was only a five feature Frontierland adventure which aired as part of Disneyland.

The first three episodes were:
"Davy Crockett Indian Fighter" 12/15/54
"Davy Crockett Goes to Congress" 1/26/55
"Davy Crockett At the Alamo" 2/23/55

Now as any student of history knows, Davy at the Alamo kind of boxed Disney into a corner because that's where his tale ends. So they had to go back and make episodes about his earlier exploits. Which were:
"Davy Crockett's Keelboat Race" 11/16/55
"Davy Crockett and the River Pirates" 12/14/55

Davy Crockett never got a series of his own.

Fess Parker portrayed both Davy Crockett and later Daniel Boone on TV. Many historians feel that this caused a permanent blurring of the two real life men into one entity forever making each less distinct.

Fess Parker now runs the Fess Parker Winery where you can buy a coonskin cap!


Passing:
Sadly Fess Parker Passed away 3/18/2010 of natural causes he was 85
