    EXCLUSIVE
    Famous '70s TV star Dan Haggerty -- who played Grizzly Adams -- died from cancer early Friday morning ... TMZ has learned.
    Haggerty died at his home in the San Fernando Valley after battling cancer for the last few months. Sources close to Dan's family tell us doctors discovered the cancer after he had surgery for back pain.
    Haggerty starred in the 1977 hit TV show "The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams" as the lovable mountain man whose BFF was a grizzly bear. He also guest starred on several TV shows like "CHiPs" and "Charlie's Angels."
    Haggerty was getting treatment in a hospital until recently when doctors told him the end was near. He decided to go home, and his son told close friends and family to come visit over the last few days before he passed.
    Dan was 74.

    Aaawww, liked that show as a kid. He was such a gentle guy on that show. R.I.P. Cancer, again! Today I bumped into a former co-worker while shopping. She, too, has cancer and from the looks of it, might not make it through the entire year. Hate that disease.

    That's an interesting/lurid post. I tried to follow up, and I can't find the post on either her Twitter feed or on her FaceBook page. Did she put it up and then delete it?

    Also, the show ran for two full seasons. At the end of the second season (April 1978), it was ranked 48th out of 104 network programs. The Chicago Tribune speculated NBC would probably not renew it. And in May, NBC canceled the show. However, Haggerty did do a follow up special that aired in December of 1978. And then a broadcast made-for-tv Grizzly Adams movie with Haggerty in 1982.
