Trivia:
Three future movie stars nearly became regulars on this series. When the show was first getting off the ground, a young unknown named Robert Redford auditioned for the role of Tod Stiles, but was beaten out by Martin Milner. When George Maharis left the show in late 1962, the producers searched for a replacement. Burt Reynolds was approached, but turned down the role as he was focusing on a film career and was not interested in a weekly series. Another actor who did want to do the series was future Academy Award winner Robert Duvall, who was even auditioned in one episode. The producers felt that Duvall was not handsome enough, however, and went with Glenn Corbett instead.See more »

one word - terrific, 19 August 2005
Author: iceturkee1950 from United States

it's funny, i was in 8th grade the last year route 66 aired and got to see a few episodes. this was because one had been filmed in daytona beach so i watched it. then i caught the rest of the last season before it went off the air.

i don't think i could fully appreciate just what a remarkable show this was. shot on location, featuring a literal who's who in Hollywood, i think maybe, this show was way ahead of its time. but it worked so well in the early 60's when quality television was quite common.

anyhow, i always said this was the ONE SHOW i wanted to see in reruns. when it aired on nick at nite in 1985, i watched more than half of the episodes and was never disappointed. mix a way cool theme song, some beautiful country, two hip guys and the corvette, how could you go wrong!!
