Shortlived: Best of the West



Here's a show I haven't thought about in many years, Best of the West. An old west based sitcom, it didn't last very long on ABC. Some of the names associated with it went on to other things, Joel Higgins went on to Silver Spoons and Meeno Pulice went on to Voyagers! (his half sister is Punky Brewster).

The most famous cast member to most however might be "Frog" played by Tracey Walter, better known to most as "Bob the Goon" from the first Batman movie.

I really liked this show when I was younger. That theme song is great. They just don't make them like that anymore.

Thank you for dragging this show out of my subconscious! I had not thought of it in an age. That having been said, I found myself able to remember the words to a lot of the theme song.

I remember loving this show as a kid. The one scene I remember was right after they had arrived in town, and he comes in as she's sweeping the floor and crying. He asks her what's wrong, and she says she can't seem to get the dirt off the floor...to which he responds "It's a dirt floor."

Made *me* laugh.

David, that's the one scene I remember, too. Must have made an impression. Or maybe it was in a show promo...
