Can't believe I haven't heard Robert Barone yet.

He stole the show almost every night.

The reason I picked Paladin early on is, he was superbly played by Richard Boone as a man of the world in San Francisco - wealthy, sophisticated, a ladies' man. But, once he donned his black outfit and hit the trail, he was rugged and resourceful and an expert with a gun. Principled and judicious. He had been a military man, but once he got out he wasted his life, gambling, partying - Until a man named Smoke taught him a lesson and he reformed to call himself Paladin - which is the only name he ever used in the series. He handed out business cards: Have Gun Will Travel
Wire Paladin, San Francisco.

@Roberta,
If I had to be stuck on an island with just one other person, a woman chosen from all the actresses I'd ever seen, the choice could easily be Audrey Meadows.

Statler and Waldorf of The Muppets. Superb. (Miss Piggy runs a distant third, but Animal, the drummer in the band, is right up there among my faves.)

Not only was Hoppy a childhood favorite of mine, I saw him in person. Hopalong Cassidy, that is.

dys, Remembering Baretta and the boid Fred.

Hoppy? I remember Hoppy and Topper. Never missed that show.

I never watched the Muppets. Does this make me un-American?
