I know. It was my fave song growing up! Can you imagine Milt trying to sing it like Fess Parker? What a phony.
I wonder if he was wearing his dry cleaned jeans pulled up to his armpits with the ever present starched business shirt.

“The Theme Song from Beverly Hillbillies is more like his style...”

How DARE YOU insult the greatest show ever produced? Uncle Jed, Jethro, Granny, Ellie Mae and the rest; are light years in character ahead of Mittens.
