Retro Con 2023 keeps on truckin’! Please welcome to our guest list actor Greg Evigan!!

Greg is best known for his starring role in the endearing 70’s/80’s tv show B.J. and the Bear! Greg played Billie Joe McKay, freelance trucker traveling the highways in his red and white Kenworth K-100 Aerodyne with his chimpanzee sidekick and best friend ‘Bear’. A mix of action and comedy, the Glen A. Larson created show is still popular and fondly remembered to this day, despite the series never being released on official DVD or playing on streaming services/classic tv networks (possibly due to the masters being lost).

Greg moved on to another hit show in the late 80’s, playing Joey Harris for three seasons on the sitcom My Two Dads, co-starring Paul Reiser and Staci Keanan! He also starred as lead character Jake Cardigan in the 90’s sci-fi movie/tv series TekWar, based on the book series of the same name! The series was co-written by William Shatner, who was also featured on the show.

Greg has enjoyed success as a singer, songwriter, and musician as well. You can even hear his voice as the male vocals on the BJ and the Bear theme song! “♫ New dreams and better scenes, and best of all I don’t pay property tax!♪” (Aaaand now we have the song stuck in our head.)

Meet the amazing Greg Evigan at Retro Con 2023, September 9th & 10th in Oaks, Pennsylvania!

“The year is 1987, and NASA launches the last of America’s deep space probes. In a freak mishap, Ranger 3 and its pilot, Captain William ‘Buck’ Rogers, are blown out of their trajectory into an orbit which freezes his life support systems, and returns Buck Rogers to Earth FIVE HUNDRED years later…” 


2019 marks the 40 year anniversary of the classic sci-fi tv series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, and we’re happy to help celebrate the occasion by bringing its lead star to Retro Con:  Actor Gil Gerard!


Gil starred in all 37 episodes of the hit series made by Universal Studios, which ran from 1979 to 1981 and still holds a devoted fanbase to this day. With reruns currently being shown on MeTV, viewers are discovering (and re-discovering) this sci-fi gem from a simpler time. We’re excited for this opportunity to bring Mr. Gerard to Retro Con!


Gil will be at the show both Saturday and Sunday for autograph and photo ops (prices will be listed as we get closer to show time). He’ll also have an on-site authentication rep at the show if you’re interested in getting your autograph certified. 


Gil will also be selling a wide variety of Buck Rogers merchandise at his booth, including some very cool Buck Rogers commemorative pins and more. But why wait? Please check out the store on Gil’s main website to purchase merchandise right now! (click the store tab up top)
