Davy Crockett

DAVY CROCKETT: KING OF THE WILD FRONTIER ABC-TV mini-series event ("Disneyland", 1954-1955), from the Walt Disney Studios. This TV creation made an overnight star of Fess Parker (Davy Crockett), and catapulted veteran actor. Buddy Ebsen (George Russel, Crockett's sidekick), to new career heights! And "Davy Crockett" launched the biggest, loudest and most successful merchandising campaign ever imagined by anyone. Over $300,000,000 in sales by the time "Crockett Mania" had settled down, proving that Walt Disney had pulled off one heck of an entertainment bonanza. Add to this mix a huge hit single, "The Ballad of Davy Crockett", that was recorded by dozens of artists, including Fess Parker (Columbia J242), and Bill Hayes (Cadence 1256), and you had every kid in America singing the verses. (Haye's rendition reached the coveted No. 1 spot on the "Pop Charts", and sold over 25 million copies in a few short weeks! Parker's version peaked at No. 5 on the "Pop Charts", while racking up over 1,000,000 copies sold!) But the Disney Studios were far from through with "Crockett Mania"! The first three, one-hour each television episodes, filmed in glorious Technicolor, had one more life to live. "Davy Crockett, Indian Fighter" (first shown on Dec. 15, 1954, and launching the "Crockett Mania" into orbit); "Davy Crockett Goes To Congress" (airing on Jan. 26, 1955); and "Davy Crockett At The Alamo" (telecast on Feb. 23, 1955), were carefully spliced together as a feature movie, "Davy Crockett: King of The Wild Frontier", and released in 950 theatres around the country. The results? The film took in $2,500,000 in record time! (This prompted the powers that be to take the remaining two episodes, also filmed in glorious Technicolor, "Davy Crockett's Keelboat Race" (shown on Nov. 16, 1955), and "Davy Crockett and The River Pirates" (aired on Dec. 15, 1955), and release them as a "new" feature, "Davy Crockett and The River Pirates" in 1956.) Walt Disney Studios had, again, struck gold all over the entertainment world; Fess Parker was a huge STAR!; and every kid in America had a new hero to admire and emulate.
