My history of YoYo
≥ While filming an episode of "Rawhide" in the 60's, I played the role of YOYO in THE LOST HERD. In the original version of the script, I was supposed to be killed; however, the producers liked the portrayal, changed the ending, and I lived on to do a number of episodes during that season as YOYO. In fact, I was featured in the next script NO DOGS OR DROVERS.
- This is interesting stuff It looks like there were 6 episodes according to the IMDB Rawhide article with the Character "YOYO" present. This information is nice but it doesn't go under History of the yo-yo, instead we will put it under Yo-yos in the Media. Thanks for your contribution I or another one of our contributors will put this up in a day or two. Thanks great stuff!-- MadYoer (Talk) 15:31, March 8, 2010 (UTC)
Speaking of weapons, there is a manga and anime about a girl police officer who uses a specially built yo-yo as a weapon. I can't remember what it's called, though.Tnarrud2 (talk) 19:57, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
