1. Daniel Boone TV series. Daniel Boone is an American action-adventure television series starring Fess Parker as Daniel Boone that aired from September 24, 1964, to May 7, 1970, on NBC for 165 episodes. The series is set in the 1770s and 1780s, just before, during, and after the American Revolution, and mostly centered on adventures in and about Boonesborough, Kentucky.

After Daniel Boone, Fess retired from the screen and went into real estate. (Submitted on March 8, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
