Ol' Festus

I love OL' FESTUS. He was a darn good sidekick to Marshall Dillon. He was always scruffy, dirty, and hysterical which is why I love and chose him over Chester. I have been watching Gunsmoke just about my whole life so I know Festus and the kind of scruffy, mean, grouchy , dirty , funny old man that he was on the show the whole time it ran on the air.

"GOOD OLD FESTUS" is what my grandpa and me always said when he came on screen with that old rifle buried in them arms with them pink long johns and that holster slung over them nasty, dirty old pants just a waitin for the trouble to start whitch to Festus meant a lot of shootin an a lot killin if it obliged to him... HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
