You never hear his name mentioned anymore, but back then (and I think our memories are backing this up) he was a household name. I recall a sketch on the Carol Burnett Show where they did a take-off on his Grape Nuts commercial. I think it was Tim Conway playing Euell Gibbons, and he was eating everything in sight.
I And I can remember Euell Gibbons died there were jokes going around about how he died, jokes (of course) having to do with something he ate as he was known for eating virtually anything in his backyard. He died at a not very advanced age (mid 60s?), so it got people questioning his diet.
And yes, I remember Kung Fu
! That was David Carradine. I used to watch that show often. It only ran for about two seasons, but left a big impression on me!
Do you remember Apple's Way
by any chance? I can hear the theme music in my head as I type this
