The “Bill Dance Outdoors” show debuted in Memphis, Tennessee in 1968 and paved the way for countless other outdoors shows.
“Bill Dance Outdoors” was one of the first successful outdoor shows, and it continues to entertain and educate generations all these years later.
A native of Lynchburg, Tennessee, Dance initially wanted to become a doctor. He instead became a professional bass fisherman. With a manufacturer’s endorsement, “Bill Dance Outdoors” first hit the airwaves in 1968.
A second wave of fame emerged from the hilarious blooper reels, which started to make the rounds on the Internet. This particular collection is just one of many.
It just goes to show many try to copy him, but no one, and I mean no one, can take a hit like Bill Dance.
