I remember seeing, when I was a kid, that MAD Magazine did a parody of Barnaby Jones. They titled it, "Barnicle Groans". Very hysterical and spot on! 😂

Barnaby Jones is my favorite TV show at the moment. Surprising how good the stories hold up today.

10 out of 11- I missed Bill Bixby as David Banner (in the old Marvel cartoon series back in the 60's he was Bruce Banner).

The tv show changed the name to David, because they thought Bruce Banner sounded gay.

I am always amazed at how old Ed Harris is.
I did not know he was busy acting that far back.

William Shatner in a beard? Now that is not something you see every day.
