“Bring a big appetite, but don’t bring a lot of money.”
Greetings, me hearties! The actor playing the lead pirate in this Long John Silver’s spot looks and sounds like Richard B. Shull (Holmes & Yo-Yo). If it isn’t him, he’s got a double. The commercial aired in June of 1977.

Here’s a mighty fine spot for Bonanza restaurants featuring cameos from Bob Denver (Gilligan’s Island) and Don Knotts (The Andy Griffith Show). Two of my childhood syndicated TV heroes in one commercial from July of 1978. We have a winner, folks!
