Hee Haw Overalls for Sale on Rissy's Treasures eBay store

And our hosts, Buck Owens and RO-O-O-OY Clark!

 

It sounds so natural now, but according to producer Sam Lovullo in his book "Life in the Kornfield," when the show first started production, there was some controversy over whose name should go first! During the first season, the decision was made to announce Buck first, then Roy, but after the first show, the producers decided to rotate the hosts' names for each show. That meant filming two sets of opening credits! However, Roy went to the producers and asked that they use Buck's name first, because he thought it sounded better. Maybe it was all that emphasis on the RO-O-O-O-OY. Hmmm....
