Toupees...ugh!!!! My dad was balding from the time he was in his late teens, and has proudly sported the Kojak look for many years. Bald looks better than a toupee anyday!

Both Pernell Roberts and Lorne Greene wore toupees on "Bonanza." Dan Blocker started wearing one in 1968. There is a blooper video on YouTube in which Dan bends over to pick something up and his hat falls off... he had no hair at all on the top of his head.

Fortunately, it looks like I won't be bald. I have all my hair (it's just getting grey/white, though).

Don't forget the Bonanza legend/outtake about Lorne Greene's toupee floating on the water after he had to jump into a pond...!

It should be noted that Pernell Roberts did not want to wear a toupee, but the producers insisted.

Others: Unless I'm mistaken, Don Stark wore a toupee on That '70s Show ("revealed" on the air!).

Fred MacMurray wore a toupee on My Three Sons.

Bob Keeshan wore a wig in the later years of Captain Kangaroo.

I read that some kind of clips were added to Bing Crosby's hair to fill in (movies).

Sportscasting legend Howard Cosell wore a rug.

Finally, in the way of procedures, something was happening with Kelsey Grammer's hair during the run of Frasier, as he later had somewhat better coverage on top. And newsguy Hugh Downs ("20/20") had implants done years ago -- that's well known.

I've read about that, but haven't seen it.

I wonder if he really needed one, at least during the show's early years. He was born in 1928 (same year as Dan Blocker) so he was only 31 years old when Bonanza started in Sept., 1959.

Bernie Koppell--was shocked to find this out on the All Star Family Feud DVD!

And I think Richard Dawson referred to his hair as a rug too!

Some guys start to lose their hair in their late teens and 20s. My cousin's 36 and lost most of his hair years ago. At my recent high school reunion, some of the guys were balding as well.

I guess Pernell's hair was receding enough to where it was obvious he was losing hair.

I'll say again... I'm glad I have my hair! See:

Pernell appeared on Hawaii Five-O in 1971 without a toupee. His coverage on top was extremely sparse. So by that time he was approaching his Trapper John MD appearance (sans beard) -- only 6 years after leaving Bonanza.

Also known to wear toupees: Carl Reiner (especially noteworthy is the
Dick Van Dyke Show episode in which Alan Brady's baldness is revealed). And his son Rob wore wigs on All in the Family.

Finally, does anyone else recall Teri Hatcher showing the extra hair that she clips on for fullness?

on in the heat of the night toward the end of the series i think caroll o'connor started wearing a piece. looked awful. he also had the gap in his front teeth bonded, looked really weird after all those years. i could see him doing it when 'heat' first started for a fresh look into a new show but he did this toward the end. it was very weird.

Yep, I knew Jack Klugman wore a toup.

When I saw him on his early appearances on game shows like Password and Match Game, his frontal hairline was very parted in the front and when I went back to see hm on his appearances on The Odd Couple and especially Quincy, MD, you can tell Klugman did INDEED wear a toupee.

In fact, he even said out loud on his 1979 apperance on "Password Plus" that wore a toupee after host Allen Ludden asked him why he was wearing a hat.

But I didn't know Tony Randall wore one this whole time?!
