I grew up during the craze too. I had a fine buckskin fringed jacket I was very proud of. That song still rings in my head. I had to grow up a bit more to realize that a lot of Crockett's story was complete and utter drek, totally untrue, except that he died at the Alamo. Only, not during the battle itself. I have occasionally seen a snippet of a rerun here and there and realize just how sophomoric the whole thing was. I guess we didn't think so at the time.The Davy Crockett TV show was a big hit in the UK too. I well remember the "coonskin" hats (rabbit I think)--although they were sold, my Grandmother made one for me and for a whole load of other kids from one of her old coats.
Didn't last long though--within a short time Robin Hood was all the rage and we all had to have Robin-hood hats, then there was a feather headdress or a mask either for the Lone Ranger or for the last of the Mohicans------
------------all of which brings up the thought--when one looks at those 1950s kids TV shows now and compares them to modern offerings, they didn't patronise youngsters. No trying to "get-down" with the kids--they had swashbuckling and adventure, good-guys and bad guys and didn't try to offer subliminal moral lessons. They all had good theme tunes too, although only about five different story lines
Or am I just thinking that nostalgia isn't what it used to be?
