DAD: Simon Kane (Robert Bray) / Widower – Grandfather
DAD’S JOB: Stagecoach Driver
KIDS: David Kane (Richard Eyer) (13)
WHERE’S MOM?: Unknown
STAND-IN “MOM”: Possibly Luke Perry (Wayne Rogers) / Stagecoach Co-pilot
Uh, this is kinda like Love Boat on a stagecoach, and without the comedy. Simon and Luke drove the stagecoach between California and Missouri, and Simon’s son travelled with them.
Maybe someday they’ll make a show about the making of M*A*S*H, and Luke Perry could play Wayne Rogers — just to square things up.
