Follow up to Shiloh's comment on the Gabby Hayes Show
I fondly remember Gabby from the numerous westerns I watched on early TV as a child and from his TV show. I remember well the conclusion where he used the cannon that Shiloh spoke of that visually depicted the Quaker Oats claim that their puffed wheat and puffed rice was "shot from guns".
Gabby was always amusing to me, and I wished I could have met him off camera as the man described as an erudite well-appointed gentleman as opposed to the unwashed appearing but lovable western derelict that he portrayed in film and on TV.
There were occasions that I remember when Gabby went to shoot the cannon that would turn grain into puffed cereal at the end of his TV program when the cannon would comically miss-fire. If the miss-fire didn't conclude the show, Gabby would mumble under his breath as he often did in the movies and somehow rig it up again until he got it to work.
