Pinky's Fandance - Clint Howard

Another one of the shows I watched religiously growing up was Gentle Ben. Clint Howard starred as Mark, the son of a game warden, who has a tame pet bear named Ben. Although the show was filmed from 1967-69 (long before I was even born), I remember it running on TV in the mornings during the summer months. We loved it. Apparently we were into animal shows, because I seem to recall Gentle Ben being followed by Flipper, another favorite of ours.
It's hard to believe that little Mark was played by Ron Howard's brother, Clint, who is probably most famous for being in all of his brother's movies. Clint was super cool in person and loved reminiscing with Keith about a film they did together. It was a lot of fun to meet him.
