For fans of the Davy Crockett show, they wanted everything from the toys to the books. A Davy Crockett iron on transfer was available so kids could have the famous pioneer on a shirt, a jacket, or anywhere else, that would hold an iron-on. The pictures of Davy fighting a bear, or fighting an Indian, were something every kid wanted.

Today, the 1950’s Davy Crockett iron-on transfer probably would not be added to clothing, but instead saved as a part of television history, within a collection. They are interesting to look at because the artwork is very different from today’s designs.
Currently, thanks to the internet, it is easy for Baby Boomers who remember the old Davy Crockett shows with Fess Parker as the “King of the Wild Frontier” to locate the beloved items of their youths. There are collectors all over who treasure their Davy Crockett and Roy Rogers memories!
