Robert Fuller

Robert Fuller and his wife, Jennifer, join me for a picture at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum Wrangler Awards. I was asked to introduce him at a couple of the Q&A sessions prior to the awards banquet and I came up with the poem below. He was inducted into their Performer's Hall of Fame and I was given an award for a retrospecitve I did on John Wayne for Encore Westerns. If you want to know the truth, I'm only sharing this poem because I have a nice picture with these two wonderul actors.

Robert Fuller

He grew up down, round a Florida Key
and everyone knew him as Buddy Lee.
He headed West; they changed his name
and after Korea, he found real fame.
He had a bit part in Calamity Jane
and starred on Laramie and Wagon Train.
He did guest shots on Rin Tin Tin,
The Monroes and the Virginian,
Big Valley, Hec Ramsey, Bonanza, Kung Fu
Return of the Seven and Maverick, too.

To Cowboy fans, he’s sure no stranger.
He was even on Walker…Texas Ranger.
For trivia buffs, that series was nice
cause he got killed on the same show…twice
And I must admit, he won us all
playing doctor with TV nurse, Dixie McCall.
You know, that’s a role at first he turned down
but a talk with Jack Webb soon brought him around
He was on JAG and on The Love Boat,
Mike Hammer, Matt Houston and Murder She Wrote

He’s a brand new addition to this here Hall of Fame
for Great Western Performers. Robert Fuller’s his name.
