I remember the show Cannonball
21 January 2006 | by (Dundee, Michigan) – See all my reviews

I remember watching Cannonball in the early 60's on TV 9 CKLW out of Windsor, Ontario Canada. It was a great show about two good truckers that always helped everyone on the roadway as they transported cargo on their truck.

I never knew if this was a show from Canada or the states. The show was on every morning Monday through Friday. A great show to watch as a kid back then. I would love to see this show on again.

Thanks for printing the words to the theme song. As I read the words, I was reading it to the way the theme song was aired.

As I can remember, most of the shows always had snow on the ground and Jerry always wore a heavy black jacket..
