A couple of days ago I finished watching the *76!* episodes of the 2 season The Rebel (1959) (that's more than 3 seasons of a modern TV show). The non-rhyming lyrics started to grow on me by the end (but still grate a bit). The open where a branding iron hits the wood to imprint his silhouette and smokes when the iron is removed is very well done. You really have to be watching to see where they change from the non-imprinted/burnt wood shot to the one with the fake smoke being pumped in from the back. Lots and lots of recognizable actors: Jack Elam: Royal Dano and Vaughn Taylor: Warren Stevens: Virginia Gregg and Bobby Diamond: Ed Nelson and Dee Pollock: John Dehner: Cathy O'Donnell and William Demarest: and many, many more. The stories were consistently good all the way through with several tying into his military past. In one a kid asks "Say... isn't that a soldier's hat?" to which he replies "It used to be..." The last half dozen or so episodes *finally* had the announcer say "A Mark Goodson, Bill Todman Production." when it came up on screen on the closing credits. Here's a list of all the guest stars who appeared (shamelessly lifted from Wikipedia): Charles Aidman Philip Ahn Claude Akins Michael Ansara Barry Atwater James Best Robert Blake Dan Blocker Henry Brandon Patricia Breslin Victor Buono John Carradine Johnny Cash Iron Eyes Cody Elisha Cook, Jr. Ellen Corby Vic Damone Royal Dano John Dehner Frank DeKova William Demarest Richard Devon Bobby Diamond George Dolenz James Drury Jack Elam Ross Elliott Jason Evers Richard Farnsworth Jamie Farr Virginia Field Robert Foulk Steven Franken Ned Glass Mark Goddard Virginia Gregg Clu Gulager Stacy Harris Myron Healey Richard Jaeckel L.Q.

Stevens Warren Stevens Gloria Talbott Buck Taylor Vaughn Taylor Kenneth Tobey Harry Townes Robert Vaughn James Westerfield Peter Whitney Marie Windsor Carleton G. Young That's quite a roster! Because it was so well written and produced I had to look up why it was cancelled. Turns out it's due to yet another bad decision by a network (again, from Wikipedia): One of the bonus items on the set is the pilot episode for The Yank. I've not watched that yet and really hadn't planned to until reading about why The Rebel was cancelled.
