Another sad fact:Lisa also had these as a kid, and didn't keep them:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyBcXwM8EHQ
Eyew! Did she have crushes on them, or was she that much of a tomboy?I always thought Bonanza was creepy and slow. All that "patriarch" crap! The only thing worse was that "matriarch" crap on The Big Valley! Barbara Stanwyck was such a hardass loveless old bitch. It flummoxed me years later when I began to see her as a SEX SYMBOL in old movies.Actually, all old TV westerns are creepy and slow. I think I kinda liked Wagon Train as a young kid, but I can't recall why.
I just went to google to see if my memory was clear about Stanwyck starring in The Big Valley. I had forgotten the theme song, which is actually quite good. A lot of those creepy, slow old TV westerns had great theme songs! Even Bonanza!
youtube, that is. Not google...
No, she was way too young to have a crush on the Cartwrights, she just liked the toys...I always thought they were really neat, too.Actually, I was a really big tomboy as a kid. I remember being jealous of my cousin because he had the play holster and gun set from Have Gun Will Travel (Richard Boone, as Paladin). They even came with a little set of business cards that said Have Gun,Will Travel...(oh, yeah....I mighta had a crush on Nick from The Big Valley...he was the tough guy brother who always dressed in all black).
"Be a Brunette Be a Redhead Be a Blonde".Be a freak.Those are hilarious. I love old toys, especially the crap that appeared in the 50s and 60s.
