Raylan Givens: I got sent here, I think because they knew it was the one place I didn't want to go. In fact, as I recall, Winona and I promised each other we'd never come back here.
Indeed you hillbilly ricpic you!
That's Nurse Good Body: Gunilla HuttonBefore Hee Haw, she played Billie Jo in Petticoat Junction -- the original story about Hooterville.
The shows Petticoat Junction and Green Acres used to trade cast and characters. That was Paul Henning's genius. Of course later shows like All In The Family spawned lots of spinoffs and so did The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Troop posted a video a couple weeks ago with Rawhide's Clint Eastwood doing a cameo as himself on Mr Ed. In a sense, Lem's Levity is a spinoff of the Althouse blogshow. Plenty of cast and character mixing and matching.
My dad loved "Hee Haw" and we watched every season. I loved it too because I was going through puberty at the time.
I mentioned watching that Keith Richards biopic last night. In it, Keith mentions how some of the big country stars in the early 60's were raging drinkers and an hotel trashers -- something which stuck to rock and rollers as a trait. He mentions a story about checking into a hotel after Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins had painted an entire room orange. "The rockers had nothing on those guys" Richards says.
