Slim Andrews use to buy tires from my dad's tire shop on Kings Canyon Rd. next to Don Jorgenson's battery shop. I was in awe when he came in as I was in the presence of a TV star. I also remember saving a lot of potato chip bags to get on the Junior Auction. I'm thinking that was on the Webster Webfoot show but not sure. Never made it though. One of the big disappointments in my younger days.

The Forty Niner and Jimmy Weldon were both great kid shows. I met them at their TV stations several times and in personal appearances in the community too. My favorite was the Forty Niner at Mendota's Cantelope festival in the Summer of 1958. We lived in Dos Palos and at the time they brought a truck load of cantelopes (iced down) to the park. My younger brother (Vern) and I ate most of a cantaloupe each and waited for a picture with "The Forty Niner".

He had a 10 gallon hat and buckboard (for pictures) and a small pekinese dog with a cowboy hat. I have the picture and my bother (probably 5 at the time) has a 'who are you looking at' stare. If I can post it, the picture is a classic! Slim Andrews was the sidekick to Tex Ritter in the movies too (was very tall and rode a donkey). My Great aunt and uncle owned the Dos Palos Movie theater back in the day a showed the old cowboy short movies on Saturdays. Richard and Vern

I was on the 49er show on my 4th birthday. I had long curls and I was probably asked a half dozen times where I got those curls. I sat in the first seat. I remember being disappointed that there was a green screen and not an actual show directly in front of us.

Slim Andrews played the Fresno Big Barn as well! Banjo I presume.
