I'm so sad to hear that. Loved Davy Crockett and owned a coonskin cap as a kid.
We had the series on Beta.
I had one too. Was my uncle's though, originally. You're old.
I used to love watching Daniel Boone on TV. Like most 60s tv shows, it's hokey nowadays. And even at 6 years old I could not reconcile Ed Ames as a Cherokee named Mingo.
I even had the Daniel Boone lunch box in 1st grade.
I didn't realize he was that old.

Loved Fess as Daniel Boone on TV. Gosh. He was 85. Man all the stars I knew as a kid are leaving us. RIP Fess. Good guy.
Let's not forget his almost Oscar winning performance in this famous movie....one of my favorite scifi's as a kid
i had a coonskin cap, too.

Davey Crockett was a little before my time, but I used to watch him every week in Daniel Boone
Character and hat was the same....just the name was different
