The lyrics to the series' theme song are: Barrelin' down the highway, Wheelin' right along. Hear the tires hummin', Hummin' out a song. The rumble of the diesel, The shiftin' of the gears. The rhythm when he's rollin', It's music to his ears. Cannon-ba--ll!, Cannon-ba--ll! Any kind of weather, Any time of day. When the rig is ready, He'll be on his way. He'll carry any cargo, He'll go anywhere. Name the destination, And brother he'll be there. Cannon-ba--ll!, Cannon-ba--ll. See more »

TV series from late 1950s of two truck drivers and the adventures they have on the road.
20 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

Another one of those great 1950s tv series which have never been seen in syndication. A whole host of adventures (usually surrounding the rold of friendship) of the main characters (Mike and Jerry) helping their friends, the authorites, and each other. One episode stands out in my distant mind; during a power failure Mike and Jerry transport in their rig a polio victim dependent on an iron lung for survival, to a hospital for treatment. All the while, Jerry is in the back of the truck manually operating the iron lung machine until the girl is safe. Another example of wholesome 1950s entertainment.
