the Missouri hillbilly

Ken Curtis was an AMAZING actor and he was lucky enough to be cast as an equally amazing character. I'm from the Missouri Ozarks, and I know people who talk just like Festus. Even related to some of them. Ken Curtis spoke nothing like that in real life. I've wondered how long it took him to nail the accent. I watch the show nearly every day. I'm a kid and it's in my top 10 favorite shows.
