Trivia

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 »

Good series, great theme!
8 April 2003 | by (Blue Mountains, Australia) – See all my reviews

Thanks for your memories, Andrew. This is one show I really would like to see again. All I have are the two versions of the theme on reel to reel tape, circa 1961. Did the boys operate between Canada and the US? I just can't remember, alas.
