Trivia

Israel Boone would be one of 72 killed at the Battle of Blue Licks, one of the last battles of the Revolutionary War, on 19 Aug 1782. He was 23. His father, Daniel, was there and saw his son killed. Coincidentally, Darby Hinton, who played Israel, was born on the 175th anniversary of Israel's death, 19 Aug 1957. See more »

Goofs

This series gave rise to the urban legend that Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett were one and the same person. In fact, the producers had intended the show to be about Crockett, but Walt Disney would not sell them the rights, so they used the name Daniel Boone instead. See more »

Loved this one.
3 October 2006 | by (US) – See all my reviews

I loved this show as a kid and I remember it being on the air all of my childhood. It is full of historical inaccuracies but the fictional relationship between Daniel and Mingo, his half-English, half-Indian friend, makes up for it. Mingo was a unique character. I am watching the DVD's now of the first and second seasons and it's like going home again. The color episodes feature some really nice footage of authentic mountains and streams as you find them in Kentucky. This is a good series to share with young kids. They are not likely to see anything like it on TV again. I'm glad to see that many people agree and have managed to get Daniel Boone out on DVD. Let's hope the remaining seasons are to follow.
