How many Rawhide characters can you name?

Do you know all the names of this cattle-drivin’ crew?


The explosion of TV Westerns in the late 1950s brought all kinds of cowboys, lawmen and gamblers to the airwaves. Some shows were canceled after only one or two seasons but others found success. One show in the latter category was Rawhide. It ran for eight seasons and aired over 200 episodes. It also happened to launch the career of one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Clint Eastwood.

Aced it, so "head 'em up, move 'em out". Love Eric Fleming. He WAS Rawhide.

#7, According to the credits, his name was “Hay-Sus”…most likely because Jesús was too close to Jesus, & religious audiences of the day may have found it blasphemy (or whatever…I have no clue what blasphemy is)

9/10 - missed that obscure last one.

I guessed on the last one, using the logic of what a character’s name would have been back in the day, & shock of all shocks, my guess was right.
