Frequently Asked Questions

The most asked question has to do with the availability of episodes on video and DVD. We had the premiere episode,"Ken-Tuck-E," released to video in June of 2000, Seasons 1 and 2 boxed sets were released in 2006, and Seasons 3 and 4 were released earlier this year.  Season 5 was released on  August 7, 2007, and Season 6 hit the shelves on November 18, 2008.  Woo hooo!

The second most asked question is for the lyrics to the Daniel Boone theme song. Enjoy! Thanks to Pam for providing the info!

And for those who've asked, Daniel Boone called his rifle "Tick Licker." The spelling varies according to source.
