For the first two seasons, music (including the theme) was composed by David Shire in a strongly country-music fashion. During the third season, there was no regular composer, with four different closing themes used in five episodes. The main title theme used in most openings and all closings from "Butch Cassidy Rides Again" (episode 4.1) was never given screen credit, but its resemblance to other scores in the fourth season suggests that Frank De Vol (My Three Sons, The Brady Bunch, Fernwood 2Night) composed all or most of the theme. The theme is somewhat similar in a driving beat to others which series producer Glen A. Larson composed for later series such as Switch and Sword of Justice. See more »
I love this show as a young child, maybe not as much as "Happy Days", but alot. I seen re-runs of "Happy Days" and what a waste of time except for the first 2 seasons before the Fonz turn 70, and Richie looked like a father of 2. "McCloud" I saw a few years back on A&E and was surprised to see how well the show aged. I still laughed, and found the show tv-ish; entertaining but got a little formualted after a while. How often can the cheif get upset, and his folk manner became too much. The guy from BSG is on this show, as well a few notable guest like John Denver. The show were McCloud is in Australia is the best. There is another episode were Richard Dawson plays a mean one. I wonder if Arnold was in any episodes. This show must of got its idea from that Eastwood movie.
