Dear Richard,

Happy Birthday!

Wish to thank you for the heart and soul that you give in each thing you work on. It is shown in each episode of Stargate SG-1 and MacGyver, plus the other shows and movies you were acting in or associated with. You give each episode of Stargate SG-1 your funny sense of humor.

Happy Birthday and I wish to give you some internet birthday kisses. Hope you'll be doing what you would love to be doing on your birthday.

I'm "oeildelynx". I adore you! You are my favourite actor, really. I try to see all Stargate's episodes (there's one every evening from Monday to Friday!). I hope you will have a really great birthday!

PS: I beg your pardon if my English is not perfect, since I'm French!

Anastasia Zimmann

Happy Birthday, Mr. Anderson!

Thanks for the plethora of amazing performances (recently on Stargate - my Friday nights no longer include bar-hopping... I'm glued to the seat for every new episode - and previous to that on MacGyver - I grew up watching that series in the 80's and along with The Transformers and The A-Team it's one of those pop-cultural icons that always bring a smile to my face!). Also, heads up! You have placed second in a recent ESPN Page 2 poll for the 2nd place favorite 'Anderson!' Granted, first place went to Pamela Anderson, but it IS a web page for sports nuts, so what do you expect? [ESPN Page 2]

Dear Rick,

I wish you a great birthday among the people you love. Thanks for all you've done all those years and still do. You've been a great inspiration to a lot of people and you probably can't even start to imagine what you mean to a lot of us. Have a great, special and unforgettable day!

Love always,


Best wishes for your birthday. It is so sad for us that this is your last year in this guise. You will be missed but I would like to thank you for the hours of pleasure you have given us over the years. May your new path be strewn with golden pleasures.

Parting will be such sweet sorrow for the many who would be Juliette to your Romeo.

Happy Birthday Mr. Anderson. Thanks for the fantasies.

A good actor can transport you to a time and place as if you were really there. You do that for me. You are a passionate, gifted, lovely man. Best wishes for continued health and happiness. Happy Birthday!

Hi, I only want to say: Happy Birthday.
This is the German MacGyver!


Happy Birthday Richard!

I hope the new year and your retirement will bring you many new adventures. Your work and concern for the environment make a difference and you can take great pride in that.

Be sure to plan some nature excursions with Wylie; we girls like adventures too. May your next year bring you much happiness.

Dearest Rick,

I am so sorry that I have no time to paint a special card for you like every year. But my Mam is very sick. So on this way I wish you a wonderful birthday filled with joy and happiness. Kiss your little family and have much fun.



Happy birthday and best wishes for the coming year to a man who is living proof that age is just a number!! Keep up the good work!


As an actor I adore your work, for your support of charities and the enviroment I admire you even more. Happy 54th Birthday, I hope you have a wonderful day and a great year ahead.

Alles Gute zum Gerburtstag



I'm wishing you all the best for the next 54 years! Hope you have a wonderful and happy birthday!!!

You're such a fantastic actor, so keep up the great work.


I don't use the word "fan" lightly... I can only count on one hand the number of actors for whom I have labeled myself a "fan," but I am definitely a Richard Dean Anderson fan. MacGyver was the catalyst for my close relationship with my dearest college friend, so I thank you for all those wonderful memories.

I would very much like to offer my best wishes for your upcoming birthday... hope it's a great one.

Well Hi Anderson,

What does a person have to do to get your attention?

Very Happy Birthday Wishes from Manchester, England!

Hi Rick,

Hope you have a great birthday, and that all your birthday wishes come true. Don't work too hard, and keep up the fantastic work.

Take care,
Love and Kissz,


Dear Rick,

Another year is over and Iīm writing you a message again... itīs the 3rd time, that I send you such a "birthday-letter".


I wish you a happy 54th birthday!!!!!

I hope you will celebrate a lot and spend a very nice day with your family!

Let me tell you that I admire you and your work. For me you are the best actor alive!

As I have already told you in a former letter, I still love MacGyver and also really enjoy Stargate SG-1. Jack is great! This kind of humor is super! Thanks for playing that role! Iīm so happy that you played Jack for 7 years - will you give him a chance to be funny in Season 8 too? I`d love it!

Of course I know and understand that you want to spend more time with your family - but it would be super if you were still acting in the future. Because thatīs the only possibility for me to "see" you.... so please donīt totally retire!

By the way: Will you play MacGyver again for a TV-movie or something? Maybe in this "Young MacGyver series" I have read about? You could have guest appearances there. In my opinion this would be very successful!

I wish you a lot of luck, health and joy!!!

Best wishes from Austria!
Alles Liebe!

Hi Rick,

Happy Birthday and best wishes from me.

A nice Day with your Family and Friends.

Leipzig, Germany

Dear Rick,

May your birthday be just the first day of a new year filled with peace, joy, love and happiness. May you enjoy good health and many years to come with your little angel, Wylie!

Happy Birthday, Richard!

As you approach retirement, and shooting schedules, the Vancouver/LA commute, and the problem of finding enough time to spend with Wylie fade away, be aware that the rewards you will reap in the future are well earned. You have given the world pleasure and inspiration through your acting, caring generosity, and dedication to environmental projects. Now it is time for you to relax, enjoy and have fun.

It is hard not to be sad for surely you will be missed, but you will never be forgotten. MacGyver in Passages and The Madonna, and O'Neill in Solitudes, Abyss and Window of Opportunity, for example, will be engraved in our memories long after our tapes and DVD's have worn out. And somewhere MacGyver and Stargate SG-1 will be finding new audiences to enthrall.

Wherever you and Wylie go our hearts will go with you, and when we look up at the night sky we will see your star.

So, live, love, laugh and be happy. Oh, and take care of those knees.

Good luck. God bless.

Gratefully, and with respect,


To Rick,

My Mum and I are great fans of Stargate, and MacGyver, and I wanted to thank you for making us laugh in these programmes, cause not many programmes on TV can rival your stunning sense of humour. I wish you all the best in 2004 and have a great birthday!

Lots of love - from friends over in the UK,

Jason & Linda -x-

Dear Richard,

My Birthday wish for you is Health, Happiness, and Love. I just wish I could be the one providing the happiness and love.

Hi Richard,

Happy Birthday! Have a fantastic day my friend. I wish you well and a long life of fun. Never is there a man who deserves it more than you, Richard. Twinkle in your eye and a smile that lights up my life. I wish all the best for the future.

P.S. Wylie, can you do something for me please? Can you give your dad a big kiss from me? Thanks Wylie, look after your dad. He is very special. Be good.

Take care of yourself, Richard.

All my love,

Happy birthday to you direct from Germany!

I wish you all my best and of course all the best to your Wylie, too.

Itīs a pleasure to see you every week on TV as Jack OīNeill. Thank you so much for being such a sarcastic actor. And thanks for 7 and soon 8 wonderful seasons of Stargate SG-1. Because I know, you want to have more time with your daughter. But I hope that you won`t retire from the whole TV screen. I, and a lot of other fans would miss you too much.

Next week I`ll go for skiing in Vail. It`s the first time for me to go ski in the USA. I hope for fantastic powder snow. I do ski since I was 2 years old. But I was every year in Austria, in the Alps. Perhaps we can ski together... anywhere at any time?! Well, enough from me, now have a wonderful birthday!!! (Sorry for my bad English)

With love,


Happy Birthday, Rick!

I wish you all the best to your 54 birthday. I hope you have a lot of fun and get many presents - I think that's one of the most important things about birthdays.

Keep well and fit and happy!




Hope you have a wonderful birthday and best wishes to you with all my heart!!!!! Love you lots!

Happy Birthday Rick
I wish you all the best to your 54 Birthday and have a good year.



Just wanted to wish you an "Oh Happy Day." I've been a fan since GH - so I'm not far behind you in age! I read somewhere that you like Australian Shepherds! Mine is named Katie and she is nearly 8! We have excellent taste, don't we? Your environmental efforts are appreciated and inspirational. Thanks for all you do!


Hi Richard,

At first best wishes for the new year. And also happy birthday. Hope you have a funny, long, nice, amusing day.

I love Stargate and I am a big fan of you.


May you always be surrounded by those you love, and always know there are people you've never met who love and support you too. Enjoy your birthday, have many more, and please never retire!

Ancaster, Ontario, Canada


Thank you for all the humor you bring to my life and my children's lives on a daily basis. Just thinking of things that your characters have done can make us laugh on the moment. Your commitment to excellence makes all your projects noteworthy. Thank you for your support of the environment and our youth. The happiest of birthdays to you, Rick. May peace and joy fill your life.

Greetings Rick,

I wish you a very Happy Birthday. I have enjoyed your work over the years. I'll miss your dry wit and beautiful smile, but there are reruns. The best of luck to you in the future. Your daughter is lovely. Enjoy her, the years go by so quickly they're teens before you know it. Now that's a strange trip. But wondrous. I have high hopes for the Waterkeepers Alliance, keep up the good work. Whatever you choose to do with your life after retiring I hope it's good for your spirit. Live in the moment, your mind and body should be in harmony bound as one with the universe. Again happy wishes for your birthday.

Peace and Love,

Sher Mindermann

Hi Richard! Per molts anys!

I'm a big, big fan of you since the days you were on MacGyver. Then I was 12 years old. Now, 16 years later, I have almost every episode of MacGyver, Stargate and other of your films on tape. You still are, and always will be, my platonic love. You can't imagine the happiness you've brought me over the years. THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH for all the emotions and great moments you've made me feel.

I wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY, with your loved ones. A lot of health, happiness, luck and all the best. Also a long life for you and Wylie to enjoy each other. My father died last year and I miss him so much... You have a friend forever in Barcelona.

P.S.: Sorry, I know my English isn't very well...

With all my love,

Barcelona, Spain

I wanted to take this opportunity to Thank You for taking the time to speak with me and my son at the Sea Shepherd fund raiser in La Jolla on January 12th and accepting our little birthday card. We were both thrilled and very nervous. You were so very kind and most charming - I was honored to have had the opportunity to meet you in person. I hope you will have an occasion to hear the music of the words of the song I had printed. I cannot convey enough how much I admire you and your work. I wish you the very best in all your endeavors and that your life continues to be filled with happiness and peace. May your adventures never end - professionally and personally and always know that you are loved by so many.

Wishing you a warm and Happy Birthday -

Hi Anderson!

My momma and me got to meet you last week at a silent auction. I gave you a birthday card from her. Do you remember us? I was really excited. I'm 9 years old and beg her to let me watch Stargate. I love you in that show! My momma has a big crush on you. She's really nice. Maybe you might like her. I do. She got two pictures of you and a hat there. I picked out the frames for them. Say hi to your daughter for me. I had fun talking to you. Thanks. Happy Birthday!

Hi Rick,

Happy 54th Birthday! May God continue to bless you with good health and shower you with happiness. I have been a fan of yours since your "General Hospital" days and continue to enjoy your acting and admire and respect the work you do in other areas, such as Waterkeepers. Thank you for giving your time and talent to us all over the years. May the Lord continue to watch over you and your little girl, Wylie. Happy Birthday!

God bless you,
