Funny thing George, when I heard he died today the first thing I thought of was that song. "Daniel Boone was a man, he was a biggggg man". Then I thought, "wow, he was still alive!?". That was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid. :)

Born on a mountain top in Tennessee
Greenest state in the land of the free

Fess wasn't a one-trick pony, either:
