Tall tales told here
18 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While I very well remember Gabby Hayes, I have no specific memory of this series although I surely saw it as I saw hundreds of Westerns in my childhood. In this series Gabby introduces and comments on PRC Westerns. They are truncated to fit the television time slot and have no titles or credits for the Westerns. Gabby started the show by saying "Howdy buckaroos. This yer old pal Gabby Hayes." "Yer darn tootin, yes sirree bob" was a favorite expression of his. In each episode Gabby related a tall tale about one of his uncles with names such as Lariat Hayes, Sail Fish Hayes and Silver Skate Hayes. In one segment Gabby is relating a tall tale and says "...he jumped on his horse." For the story this had to be incorrect and without missing a beat, Gabby said "off'n horse rather." No need for retakes in early television. The best part of this series was Gabby's tall tales although too brief at only a couple of minutes, they were nonetheless engaging. It would be great to have a compilation of all his tall tales. Gabby Hayes was a master storyteller of the tall tale humor - a type of humor that is now unfortunately passé.
