Like the other posters, I, too, recall Gabby Hayes. I watched him on probably a 12" screen in the apartment my parents moved into after they were married, down the block from my grandmother's.
People remember Gabby shooting the Puffed Wheat from a canon, but I don't. I do remember one thing very distinctly. One day Gabby had a full bowl of Puffed Wheat in his hands, and he stretched his arms forward and put the bowl out of camera range. When he brought the bowl back into camera range it was empty.
Well, I can only guess how old I was, four maybe, and I was fascinated. I asked my mother what happened to the cereal. "The cameraman ate it," she told me.
It's nice to look back at those simple days of youth.
