Homer and Jethro (Homer Haynes and Jethro Burns) were a comedic musical duo and staples of country western music for decades. The team often spoofed existing songs, recorded extensively, and appeared on radio and the television variety show circuit.
The duo were frequent guests on The Jimmy Dean Show. On the October 8, 1964 broadcast, Rowlf introduced them and the other guests by name. When Rowlf noted "You all know each other," Homer and Jethro shook hands as if becoming acquainted.
