After his success with Disney's Davy Crockett, Fess Parker returned to network television in1964 for 165 episodes of Daniel Boone. Ed Ames co-starred as Mingo, Boone's American Indian friend, for the first four seasons of the series. Albert Salmi portrayed Boone sidekick Yadkin in season one only. Country Western singer-actor Jimmy Dean was a featured character during the 1968-1970 seasons. Actor and former NFL football player Roosevelt Grier made regular appearances in the 1969 to 1970 season. The show was broadcast "in living color" beginning in fall, 1965, the second season. It was shot entirely in California and Kanab, Utah.
This particular episode takes place during Christmas. An Indian brave and his pregnant wife arrive outside the settlement seeking shelter inside the fort from a raging blizzard but some of the settlers are wary of giving it to them. The stores have Christmas decorations out, so I thought I would post this episode to help get you in the early spirit. And don't forget, starting around Thanksgiving I will once again begin posting the Blog-o-Rama's Christmas show a day!You can order Daniel Boone at Amazon.com by clicking on this link:
