Trivia

According to an interview with Veronica Cartwright, she left the series because the producers wanted to have her character of Jemima Boone involved in more mature situations, such as budding romantic relationships. Patricia Blair did not like this because it made her feel too old, so she threatened to leave the series if Cartwright was not let go from the series. See more »

Goofs

Many times Boone interacts with the Cherokee while he is at Boonesborough. Boonesborough is in northern Kentucky, while the Cherokee were never closer than the southeastern tip of Tennessee. Boone did fight with the Cherokee during the French and Indian War from 1754-1763 when he lived in North Carolina. Boonesborough was founded in 1775 by Boone. See more »

A great show to bring your entire family together :)
21 May 2015 | by gilligan1965See all my reviews

This is a great TV show for all ages. The kind of show that 'should,' and, most likely will, among other things, teach children to respect their parents, and...elders, alike; and, how a functional family works when they 'work together.'

I remember watching "Daniel Boone" when I was about three (around the forth season) and how much I enjoyed it. Now, the "Inspiration" (INSP) channel has brought it back. I watched two episodes yesterday (May 20, 2015), and, it's as good as I remember it being. It's the kind of 'family-friendly' television that parents can allow a small child to watch alone without the fear of them seeing or hearing something inappropriate, vulgar, overly violent, and/or something that may give them nightmares.

What else is great about this show is the scenery. Wonderful settings with open fields and thick forests; as well as beautiful streams and rivers. Serenity and peace in a wilderness that is absolutely breathtaking. Anyone who likes the outdoors is sure to like this; and, with any luck, this show, and, others like it, will get more children to get off of their computers and into the wild.

The characters are played by good actors who people remember - Fess Parker (Daniel Boone), of "Old Yeller" (1957); and, Roosevelt "Rosey" Grier (Gabe Cooper), the man who broke Sirhan Sirhan's hand while taking his pistol away after he shot Robert Kennedy, thus, saving others from being killed. (I guess that's what happens to your han(d) when you have a name like Sirhan Sirhan!?!?).

It was television shows like this, and..."Grizzly Adams;" "The Waltons;" "Bonanza;" "The Big Valley;" "The Virginian;" "Little House on the Prairie;" "The High Chaparral;" "Gunsmoke;" etc., that made me want to spend a lot of time exploring various forests and all they have to offer; and, made me want to become a Cub Scout and learn even more. Plus, all of these TV shows are 'child-friendly.'

Bottom line - "Daniel Boone" is great family-fare; and, it's great for children of all ages. :)
