    Thank you Billy, been following you since you played with Doris Day and Gordon you made my head spin. Father knows best, boy could you jump and tumble. Not forget The Day The Earth Stood Still…What a movie. God Bless you Billy for all the joy you put in so many lives..

    was 7 when FKB came on tv. In a way my generation grew up with a lot of tv family shows. The 1 episode that stirs in my mind is when Bud brings home a friend who unknown to him, was homeless. In the end it turned out as best the 50s could make it. As far as payments being deprived for their work 60+ years ago is a tragedy & I think this is what drove them to unfortunate circumstantces. Finally the girl who played Zelda in Dobie Gillis is a real person that turned acting as a way for her super career.

    • Peggy says:

      I love Billy’s acting on Father Knows Best and still watch. I just wish Billy felt better about the show. I think it strove to always leave a moral of honesty, integrity, self discipline and family love

  18. Sherry says:

    I’m sorry I didn’t see this sooner! Love you Billy Gray! My 10 y/o GD has taking a liking to Bud On FKB – she thinks you are cute & charming! :)

  19. raymond says:

    Billy;
    Thankyou for still being involved You bring back such fond memories, You were the real American boy! Hang in there

  20. Regina says:

    FKB is one of my favorite shows of all time. I know Bill thinks it wasn’t true to the way life really was,but I for one watch TV to escape the real world somewhat. The show still shows a lot about how that era was,,just not the worst parts of it. And I bet in quite a few places (like the small town I grew up in) life was very similar to the show.
