The Texas Wheelers is a 1974 ABC sitcom starring Jack Elam as Zack Wheeler, who returns to rural Texas after the death of his wife to raise his four children - Truckie (Gary Busey), Doobie (Mark Hamill, in his most notable pre-Star Wars role), Boo, and T.J. (Tony Becker). Although it was the first MTM Enterprises production to air outside of CBS, due to being aired against the second half of NBC's The Rockford Files, it was cancelled after four episodes, although four more would then air in summer 1975. However, the show remains very hard to find to this day, and is nowadays noteworthy amongst the logo community for an MTM logo variant seen in its final episode. (More on that in The Lost Logos Hub.)
