Happy Birthday! Sending you warm wishes of joy and thanks to you and your loved ones. You and your various endeavors have touched so many people in so many ways (myself included). Thank you. In your own way, you have reached out and made the world just that much better. My wish for you is that you know you are loved in return, enjoy your loved ones, and no matter what DANCE!

At the age of 5 3/4 years I suppose I'm one of your biggest kiddy-fans. Excuse my English. I try my best but there are so many differences between my language and yours. Besides Puh-the-Bear, your series eg. MacGyver and the rest of it like Stargate (but I'm not allowed to watch it!!!!!! My mommy thinks that I'm too young for it. ) are my favourite movies. I love your series of MacGyver. It's very interesting. My mommy doesn't understand the fascination of it.

I wish a happy birthday and a big birthday cake (like Jack O'Neill would say, I suppose).

A Birthday Prayer for a Beautiful Person!!

Celebrating Your Birthday with a Prayer
by Emily Matthews

A prayer for you that brings to mind
so much of how you live -
The love you show,
the gifts you share,
the happiness you give....

Lord, grant me the gift of a generous heart
that embraces each person I see -
A heart reaching out
in true kindness and caring
to share all the best that's in me.

Lord, grant me the gift of bright, happy spirit
that joyfully faces each day -
A spirit that's loving
and gently shines through
in my actions and each word I say.

Lord, grant me the gift of a wonderful life
that fulfills what I'm sent here to do -
A life that is lived
in richness and beauty
of serving and following you.

A wish for a day that is wonderfully blessed
by all of the gifts in this prayer -
A day that reflects
your own deep, inner beauty
and all the joys that you share.

Happy Birthday!!

Hugs & Kisses,
From Stephanne

A Birthday Poem From the Dog

You feed me when I'm hungry,
You keep water in my dish,
You let me sleep on anything,
or in any place I wish.

You sometimes let me lick your hands,
or even lick your face,
Despite the fact I've licked myself,
in every private place.

You taught me how to come when called,
You taught me how to sit,
You always let me go outside
So I can take a @@@ Stroll.

I've been with you through oh, so much,
Through laughter and the tears,
I hope you live to be a hundred....
...(that's 700 in doggy years.)...

Happy Birthday!!

I always enjoyed your shows, but did not know SG-1 until my mom from Germany came to visit and told me about it. Ever since I rarely miss an episode and try to tape as many as I can. Keep up the good work. I hope it will run for a long time

Well excuse me for my English. But I'm very young. I don't speak English very well...

Have a very special day celebrating your birthday and all that God has given you. I pray that God will bless you with wisdom as you raise and spend precious time with your daughter - what a wonderful gift our children are.

I want to let you know that I really enjoy Stargate SG-1. It is a wonderful program to come home to after work and relax. (And you help us laugh, too.) I am anxiously waiting for the rest of the seventh season to be aired. I am also looking forward to the fifth season DVDs to come out. Thank you for entertaining us.

Hi, Richard,

I wish you a very happy birthday. Enjoy your life and the time you spend with your beautiful daughter. I adore you for the preferences you have in your life. Not many actors would take family on first place, even if they have the ability to do so. So share as much time with her, you could spend! There is nothing better in life than to spend your time with the one you love!

I wish you all good luck, lots of cakes,
and a happy and loooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnng life!

Best wishes,

All the best for the coming years and hope to see you down under soon!!!

Hallo Du bist ja nicht so sehr viel älter als ich ...also bleib ich mal beim Du. Ich finde Dich in den Filmen, die ich bisher sah immer sehr gut. Sehr inspiriert hat mich die Serie "MacGyver" und natürlich bin ich ein Riesen Stargatfan. Weiter so. Du kannst noch viele schöne Filme machen.

Hi Rick!

Happy Birthday to You!!!! I hope you're having a great day. Thank you for wanting a Season 8 of Stargate SG-1. You are really such a great actor, really. Can't you come to Germany once? Here are so many fans who would really like to meet you once and not every student has the money to come to Vancouver and try to meet you there. It would be so nice. Okay, then again happy birthday and say hello to Wylie from me.

Love ya,

Near Cologne, Germany

Have a great birthday. I know you have family commitments but keep up the good work on SG-1. I don't know what I would do without my regular fix of Colonel Jack. In fact, I named my latest Boxer puppy after the Colonel. He seems to have his sense of humour but unfortunately, does not look as good and try as I might, I cannot get him to wear a uniform (his paws keep getting caught in the buttons and belt straps!)

Carnforth, Lancashire, England

Happy Birthday!! I hope that you have a wonderful b-day with lots of family and friends. You look great and do not look a day over 25. Also, please know that I love your work and I wish you continued success in the future. I'll miss seeing you every week.

Thank You,

New Jersey


Happy Birthday Rick,

You have been a fantastic character actor in shows that I have loved during my viewing life (starting with MacGyver through to my favourite - Stargate). The humour and fun that you portray make the audience enjoy each moment with you.

It was a blast for me to find out that you are an Aussie Shepherd owner - I breed them here in Australia and have named one of my litters after Season One Stargate episodes!

Enjoy your birthday, spend a great day with your family and friends!


Crib Point, Victoria, Australia

Hi Rick. Another big fan here. I heard that the creators of MacGyver were thinking about doing another series and that you turned down the part they offered you. I understand why but your fans all over the world are crying over that! I was wondering what might be next for you as an actor? Oh yeah. Those of us who know about your singing career would like to hear you sing and play the guitar, too. Any chance of that any time soon? Wishing you and yours a great birthday and many happy returns. Love ya lots. So long. Can you tell I'm reluctant to quit? See ya.



Hi Rick,

I want to wish you a very good birthday. May this day be very special for you with friends and family. Stargate is the best series I have ever seen. And you are the best actor and an attractive man with a beautiful smile. I wish you all the best.

The Netherlands

Many happy returns from Diane and Emma Walker. Emma is 2 years old (is she your youngest fan I wonder?!) and insists on watching Stargate with me. She knows all the main characters but Jack O Neill is her favourite. I have an SG-1 screensaver on the PC which she loves saying hello to and pointing out "there's Jack O' Neill". Anyway I'm babbling, hope you have a great day.

Tons of luv and laughter,

Diane and Emma

Happy Birthday Richard! I wish you and your family only the best in your life. I am your great fan and I think you are a great actor. God Bless you.

Warmest birthday wishes for a great day and many, many more years to come. I appreciate your work very much and am very thankful you agreed to a Season 8 of Stargate SG-1. Take care and stay safe.


Dear Rick,

Just wanted to jot down a quick note to say I hope you have a wonderful birthday, and I hope you are able to spend it with your beautiful little girl.

And if you're ever in the vicinity of New Zealand, you should check it out - I'm sure (considering your interests in the environment and all things outdoors) you'd love the place - of course I'm biased... but hey...

Anyway, have a wonderful day, and thanks for all the wonderful work you do on Stargate SG-1, MacGyver, and your other works. You're an inspiration, and great role model... oh and you're totally gorgeous too!

54 and still the sexiest man to walk through that Gate!

I'll miss Jack a LOT when he's gone - please give him a happy ending...pleeeeease!

I hope you have a really wonderful birthday!

Love and kisses....xxxxxxxx

You can also send me an e-mail, but I would also like you to call me!!!!! Please do Richard! I love MacGyver and watch it when I can. I also love Stargate SG-1 and your character Col. Jack O'Neill.

Hi Rick,

Just to wish you a very Happy Birthday and hope you have a great time with your family and friends. Here's to the future, may it hold many memorable events as you and Wylie grow together as you journey through life.

Good luck Rick in all that you may do, and thank you for being a part of our lives as you come into our homes through the magic of TV...

Take care,


Happy Birthday Rick!!!! I can't believe it's your birthday again, though that is good because it means mine is up in a matter of days too! Well, I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed watching you on TV. Your characters are always a breath of fresh air. Your humor and humanity is awesome and is the envy of more than a few. Hope your birthday is full of memories, and have a great time with Wylie! Thank you from the bottom of MY heart!!

Love and Wishes,


Dear Richard,

Since 7 years I'm a very big fan of you. Now I'm 15 years old and I want to wish you a very great birthday and a lot of nice presents. So all the best to your 54th birthday on January 23rd, 04.

Sometimes I'm very sad because my biggest dream is to meet you one day but I think it will never happen. I would be very lucky if you should write to me. I don't think you answer to my letter but I were very lucky about it and I hope it very much. If you should do this I will thank you for all my life.



Happy Birthday to you Rick. I hope you have a nice day. You are the sexiest men on the world. I love you so much. Say hello to your daughter Wylie. Hope to see you once in Germany.


Oldenburg, Germany

Seeing you on Stargate SG-1 every night is about as close as I'll ever get, but you and I love animals, log cabins, and the great sport of racing cars. We have a lot in common, single and happy I guess... HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Let's go horseback riding with our dogs!

Best wishes,

So you're turning 54,
and still as handsome as ever.
You're a wonderful actor,
with a smile to die for.
May your year bring you as much joy,
as you've brought to others.

Happy Birthday Mr. Anderson. I hope you have a super birthday. I really enjoy your shows MacGyver and Stargate SG-1. Thank you for the enjoyment. I am also proud of my fellow Minnesotan. You have made us proud. Good luck in everything you do.

Best Wishes Always,

Debby Leon

Happy Birthday, Rick

I'm Ay-ru Yang, your big fan who lives in Taiwan. Do you remember some of Taiwan's fans who sent you and your family some Chinese jades? I'm one of them. And after that, I sent you Yo-yo Ma's CD as your birthday present. You may don't remember me but I still wanna say thank you.

I'm glad to write something to you with your fans on this website, because you helped me so much, and I just had no chance to say thanks to you. MacGyver affected me so much. He let me know, "Never give up," and this is what supported me. The idea and work of the environmental protection, I'll keep doing and trying to affect the people around me to do the same thing too. There are so many influences. He is just like my life's teacher, he keeps leading me to the right way. I believe there are many people around the world who would follow the lead of MacGyver just like me. It's a pity, I don't have MacGyver's episodes collected edition to make his effects keep going forward.

Anyway, I want to say happy birthday to you and wish your whole family happiness.

Your big fan,

Ay-ru Yang

Happy Birthday Mr. Anderson! Best wishes and love to you and your family! Thanks for sharing your special talent and sense of humor with us.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Mr. Anderson. Thank you for your skillful portrayal of the resolute, intrepid, peerless, and always "open-minded" Jack O'Neill (with 2 L's). You have made him even more endearing by showing us his (your) humorous side. I am hoping to see many more appearances by Col. O'Neill in Stargate SG-1. The creators of the show were very wise in seeking you out to play the part! May your 54th birthday add to your "JOIE DE VIVRE"!

Bavaria, Germany

Hi Richard.

I struggled long and hard to find just what I wanted to say and now I think I finally have it, so here we go:

I want you to know how amazing you are.
I want you to know how much you're treasured and celebrated and quietly thanked.

I want you to feel really good....about who you are
About all the great things that you do!
I want you to appreciate your uniqueness.
Acknowledge your talents and abilities.
Realize what a beautiful soul you have.
Understand the wonder within.

You make so much sun shine through, and you inspire so much joy in the lives of everyone who is lucky enough to know you.

You are a very special person, giving so many people a reason to smile. You deserve to receive the best in return, and one of my heart's favorite hopes is that the happiness you give away will come back to warm you each and every day of your life.

Thanks for all the smiles you've given me.

I hope you have a wonderful day - today and everyday.
I wish you love, peace and happiness - always.

Dearest Richard.

Sending you the dearest birthday wishes my heart contains.

May you have a fantastic day with your family and friends. I hope your life continues to be filled with love, joy and happiness.

As much as I want to see more of you on my screen, in roles we all love you in, your daughter is a very lucky girl to have you as her daddy, a daddy prepared to share so much time and love on her and the world she is growing up in.

Many, many happy returns, Richard.

With love,

Happy Birthday to a swell guy. (They said "swell" a lot back in your day, didn't they?) I hope you enjoy your 54th birthday and have a great start on your 55th year, and remember, you're not losing your youth, you're gaining arthritis, rheumatism, forgetfulness...

Il existe en France un coin de paradis. C'est là que poussent l'olivier, le thym, le romarin, la lavande... Ce coin s'apelle: LA PROVENCE.

C'est de là que je vous écris pour vous souhaiter un très bon anniversaire: bonheur, santé et.... succès.

J'espère que le Colonel O'NEILL (avec 2L) ne prendra pas encore sa retraite: il me manquerait.

Happy Birthday! I was happy to see you on the Wayne Brady show recently, and I thank you for being a part of one of my favorite shows, Stargate SG-1. For my sake, I hope Stargate lasts forever, but as we're not Goa'uld, I realize that's impossible. So, instead I'll say I hope the show continues for as long as it's meant to, and I thank you for all the work you've put towards this wonderful show. Fridays aren't the same since it's been on hiatus.

Dear Richard,

We would like to wish you a very happy birthday and a wonderful, fun-filled year. My daughter, Rachel, has the same birthday as you. (She will be 9 on Jan. 23.) When she found out, she became your second biggest fan (behind me of course!). We are big Stargate fans and are so happy that you will be doing an 8th season. The best to you and your daughter. Please keep supplying us with that great smile of yours and your sense of humor for many years to come.

Hi Rick,

I wish you the very happiest birthday ever. I wish I could give you a birthday kiss in person but not gonna happen so here is my best to you. XOXOXOXOXOX.

I can only say WOW, AWESOME, VERY SPECIAL to express how I feel about you and the kind of man I think you are. I admire you for all you have done for others. Wylie is the luckiest young person to have a dad like you.

Maybe one day you can play a charity game of hockey (in Michigan) with the Celebrity All star Hockey team for Autism.

My Best to you and yours. Take Care.

Happy 54th Birthday, Richard! As a fan since MacGyver you just keep getting better looking with age. As far as I am concerned you don't look a day over 45. Thank you for all the years of enjoyment through your TV series and your TV movies. Being a father seems to agree with you and you are doing a great job with your daughter Wylie. Many more birthdays for you and please continue to be the great guy that you are.

Hi Ricky Dean!

Thanks so much for your work in protecting our environment, for the great one-liners delivered as Jack O'Neill (cracks me up), for the great messages in MacGyver, and for all of the work you've done that has kept us entertained.

I also want to thank you for going gray! I allowed my natural gray hair to show two years ago and I'm loving it. It's freeing!

You are truly an excellent actor. Best wishes for a very happy birthday, and great year to follow, and much love & hugs to you and Wylie.

Thanks for the great moments with "MacGyver", thanks for the moments with "Emerald Point", thanks for "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" and so many series. I hope you can read this message, you know you have a lot of fans in Spain. Kisses, and Merry Christmas too.


Just wanted to wish you the happiest of Birthdays on your special day. Not only have my husband and I been great fans of the roles you have played throughout the years, but we are also great fans of the work you have done ecologically and with children. Hope you have many more happy days!

May your day be wonderful spending it with those who love you. Cheers :)

As a fan who followed your MacGyver career, thank you. I'd only wish to have been able to see your GH work. If I was more of a science fiction fan, I'd probably be a fan of SG-1 as well. I loved your interview on Jay Leno a while back. A very nice surprise to see you doing commercials too. I appreciate the postcard that was sent, not really knowing if I would get a response. I too ride motorcycles as well, maybe one of your charity rides will pass my way. That picture of you with your infant daughter was so beautiful I cried, how precious. Thanks again for sharing your craft with the world and representing the Midwest.

Take care and best wishes,

Thank you for entertaining us and for gracing us with your presence - here's hoping for many more years to come.

Many happy returns - I hope you spend the day with those you love, sharing smiles and laughter.


Growing up is mandatory; growing old is optional...

Keep up the great work and have an awesome birthday!

Hannah, 13

I wanted to do something for you on your Birthday that would make you happy, but I couldn't figure out exactly what.

Nothing I could come up with seemed special enough for a wonderful person like you. A couple of times of times I thought I'd found the answer but then I'd think NO, not good enough for such a terrific man.

I became obsessed. I couldn't sleep. I couldn't eat. My work began to suffer as I fell into a deep depression. I started to become PARANoid. Whenever I'd hear people laugh, I thought they were laughing at my failure to do something nice for one of my favorite people on his Birthday. FiNaLLy I had a complete mental breakdown. I had to be institutioNalized.

I sure hope you're happy now, you've ruined MY liFE.

(Oh, yeah! Have a Happy Birthday!)

Happy birthday for 2004. Best wishes to you and Wylie. Just wanted to say you are a very kind and caring person helping the children in LA and caring for the environment. Best wishes for the future!



Hi, Richard Dean Anderson.

I'm 15 and you are 54. It's a big difference but I don't care. For me you are the greatest and you will always be. Go on like this. You're my favorite actor 'cause the way you act no one can. You act the stars of the sky but who needs stars if you are a shining star. So shining that you can give the whole world your light. Who cares? I don't 'cause you are the best!

Celebrate your birthday and keep on acting like you never did.

I start watching MacGyver the last season or the one before the last and they repeat it in Belgium for 4 or 5 times and every time I watched. Now it's my favorite series. It's for you I watch Stargate SG-1 'cause I hate science-fiction, it sucks big time but thanks to you I learned to appreciate it. So thank you for everything and I hope you never stop acting.

Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, and a Happy Birthday.


Happy Birthday Richard,

Hope that next year is full of joyous moments. You have inspired so many people in a positive way with the roles you have portrayed. People forget that you are acting and think of you as the character you're playing. What greater compliment can there be for an actor? God Bless.

Buffalo, NY

A Very Happy Birthday and a wonderful year to a great guy, named Richard Dean Anderson. I really enjoy any show you appear on. I am a Grandmother of 6 grandchildren, and my husband and I have temporary custody of a 4-year old named Alison. So, I know what a joy Wylie is to you. Enjoy your special day with her, and your other friends and family.

I enjoy watching you everyday as MacGyver and Col. Jack O'Neill.

Happy 54th!

Levittown, NY

Happy Birthday, Richard!

You are the best actor, I hope you keep acting. I hope and I swear I will meet you 1 day. It is a promise I made to myself when I was young, to tell you how you helped me in my life.

Good holiday for you and Wylie Quinn!

Bye bye,


Dear Richard,

By the actions of your characters (MacGyver and O'Neill) I have learned not to judge people before I get to know them. I also learned not to quit when things get rough, to find a solution and work problems out. From you I learned that I can make a difference to the environment. Through recycling and buying environmental friendly products I can help protect this planet. I read somewhere that you said your job was to entertain people. You do more than that. Through your actions and charactors you are a teacher.

Best wishes for the future,
Happy Birthday,

Dover, Delaware

Happy Birthday Rick and thanks for MacGyver and Stargate. I really admire your enthusiasm and stamina about your job because I am the same age like you and know what is arthritis and rheumatism (No, it was only joke, I guess you must be in real life as fit as a fiddle, or not?) And anything else - I like your sense of humor (very clever humor). It is rare in this days in show business. Thanks!

Czech Republic

What can I say that has not been said in countless other messages? I watch you because of your characters and of course the way you present yourself on screen. MacGyver and O'Neill are two different characters, but both with the same heart - it shows through you. And now my daughter, who is almost 3, is beginning to enjoy your work. I wish you all the happiness on your birthday. Keep smiling and of course, love that precious girl of yours to your fullest.

Dear Richard,

Happy birthday! Thank you for bringing the adorable MacGyver and the even more adorable Jack O'Neill to life; having been around almost as long as you have, I can safely say that even though it would appear to be an impossibility, you have most definitely improved with age!

May your birthday on January 23, 2004 be filled with fun, love, and laughter, and I hope you'll continue to brighten our lives with your presence both onscreen and in real life.

PS Seeing as you're the Executive Producer of Stargate SG-1, would you PLEASE let the writers put us all out of Jack and Sam's misery?

Happy Birthday Rick,

Since I know you read these I wanted to take this chance to thank you for being such a great influence in my life. Whether on TV or in your personal life you have been a realistic role model for people to aspire to while never losing your modesty or focus on family commitment. I have found you to be a great actor, a fine humanitarian and the funniest person I've ever seen. It's because of you I've taken up acting and performing. I look forward to enjoying more of your work. Thanks Rick for making a difference in the world and in my life. Have a great year!

Words on your Birthday card cannot express how much of a hero you are to me. I have been watching you since General Hospital and you are the only actor I have followed for a long time. The main reason of course is because I love your acting, you crack me up with your humor and I respect your work with the environment, being a humanitarian and the fact you are a great person.

Happy Birthday......

Lynn Gustafson

Dear Richard!

I wish you a wonderful, cheerful and of course a very "Happy Birthday"! You may thank your lucky star, that you can't hear my birthday-song for you, it sounds terrible! But I try it anyway.

Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you!
Happy Birthday - dear Richard - happy birthday to you!

Please stay on screen, you're such a great actor!

Dear Rick,

I wanted to say that you are such an inspiring actor. You show what can be accomplished with some hard work. I hope you have a wonderful birthday.

A BIRTHDAY LESSON - My dad took me to lunch for my 22nd birthday and asked how it felt to be that old.... I responded with, How about you dad you'll be 60 next month! He said - pretty good - if I wasn't 60 I'd be dead. He died the following week of a massive heart attack. I'm now 55...and happy to be any age. Happy birthday....and many more!

Dear Mr. Anderson,

Happy Birthday! I always think of you on 23 January and wish upon my favorite star that all of your wishes will come true. You have been my favorite actor since your debut on General Hospital as Jeff Webber. You were wickedly handsome then and even more so now. You are living proof that you only get better as you get older. I'm looking forward to the new season of SG-1. Your show is always on in my home (thank goodness for Sci-Fi).

Here's hoping you will have a fabulous birthday - please make sure you do something special for yourself. And, please know I'll be thinking of you on "your day."

Hello Rick,

Hope you have a fantastic birthday! Your acting has brought great joy to my life over the years. It is also heartwarming to see what a dedicated father you are to your beautiful daughter Wylie.

With much appreciation,

Hi Rick!

I'm sure you hear this a lot, but you are the most wonderful actor in the entire universe and I absolutely love you. OK anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Guess what? My birthday is the same day as yours, but I'll be 14. What are the chances of THAT?

Have a great birthday,

Roanoke, Virginia


I wanted to take this time to let you know how much of an impact you have had on my life. I have watched you since 1985. I have enjoyed watching you on MacGyver, Legend and on Stargate and have seen all your movies at least twice. I was sorry to hear that you are thinking about taking some time off. But we all need the time to spend with the kids. Anyway, hope you have a great 54th birthday and many more after that.

Keep up the good work and hope to see you for years on end. If you are ever in the Jacksonville, Florida area, look me up. I would love to meet you!!

Sheri Richards

I want to wish the happiest birthday to you! I hope you enjoy your birthday. I want to meet you so bad. I am your biggest biggest fan. Please let that come true.

Have a Happy Birthday to come. May it bring fun! Enjoy!

Cher Richard,

Je vous souhaite un très bon anniversaire. Vous êtes quelqu'un que j'apprécie et respecte énormement. Soyez toujours heureux et continuez à nous apporter plein de bonheur!

Je me permet de vous embrasser et j'espère qu'il y aura quelqu'un pour traduire mon message mais j'ai préféré écrire en français pour que vous voyiez que vous avez des fans un peu partout.


Dear Rick,

I wish you a happy birthday. I hope you have a wonderfull day. Please don't stop playing Jack O'Neill. You've made me laugh when I was sad. The best wishes from Germany.



Was going to "sing" you the Casey Jones birthday song, but didn't know if you'd remember it or not... Hope you have a very Happy Birthday, spent with the ones most important to you.

Love the grey.

I wish you a happy birthday.
I find MacGyver was better than Stargate.
I hope you play MacGyver again.

Steven (13)

Hi Rick,

I hope you are having a joyous birthday. You are number one in my book. I have been enjoying your work since the MacGyver days, and you still look good now as you did then. You definitely look totally awesome today. I also admire all of the charities that you do.

I hope that you will continue doing Stargate and other related projects in the future, cause a day without watching you on TV (idiot box) is torture. I do know that you have a priority of taking care of your daughter Wylie, which is a good thing, but think about the rest of us who go totaly nuts just seeing you on TV or anywhere they happen to spot you.

Well enjoy the ski season, and hockey season. Have a happy New Year and a great birthday with friends and family.

Dear Mr. Anderson,

I wish you a very Happy Birthday! Thank you for all the entertainment I can enjoy with your great playing on Stargate and MacGyver. I wish you also a Happy New Year of 2004 and also your daughter and family.


Dear Richard,

Hello, and Happy Birthday! I was 13 when MACGYVER first aired in 1985. I will be 32 on January 23rd (seriously, that's my birthday, too). So you've had me hooked for 19 years. I now have a 12 year old daughter who loves to watch you on MACGYVER and STARGATE SG-1. She absolutely loves Col. Jack O'Neill.

If you don't mind, I'd like to borrow a quote from a very memorable person.....

"A fella's life wasn't worth mentioning if he hadn't shared it with some folks along the way. Well, I guess it's taken this party to make me realize that about the only thing worth mentioning about my life is the fact that you've all shared your lives with me. And that I'd never have known any of you if I hadn't been doing the kinds of things I've been doing. And I just want you all to know that you're all very, very special to me." ~~~MACGYVER

Richard, your life IS worth mentioning, and I hope it doesn't take a party for you to realize just how much you mean to so many people. You have touched the hearts and changed the lives of so many people, not only as an actor, but as a person. You have had such a successful career, but you have stuck to your roots, and you never forgot everything you went through to get this far. I really admire you. You are a very handsome man, and your smile and charm has captured many hearts. Your compassion for others, modesty, kindness, determination, humor, big heart, and positive attitude is what makes you so unique. You have been such a wonderful role model, not just for kids, but adults also.

Thank you, Richard, for sharing your life with me and thousands of others. You have brought us all so much joy and given us so many wonderful memories. With the exception of my daughter, you are my most favorite person. You are a very special man, and you'll always be very dear to my heart.

Have a wonderful birthday, and may God continue to bless you and Wylie.

All my love,

Tiffany Beeler
Knoxville, Tennessee

Dear Rick,

Happy Birthday! I hope this is your best birthday yet. Hope that 2004 is a wonderful year for you and your family.

Thanks for your performances throughout the years in General Hospital, in MacGyver, and now in Stargate SG-1. Your roles have brought much enjoyment into my life.

Best wishes for your birthday and for the new year.

Georgia, USA


I just wanted to wish you a Very Happy Birthday. You are a great actor and a great person. You are role model for many people because of the humanitarian that you are. You help save animals and help charities. You have a wonderful personality that shines on screen. I began to watch you on MacGyver when it first aired. I thought it was the best show on TV. Me and my sister played pretend like we were MacGyver. It was very fun. Me and my big sister still have a crush on you. You are still handsome as ever. Now I am 20 years old and I relive those wonderful memories thanks to TVLand. And get new memories from your wonderful new show Stargate SG-1. I love your character Colonel Jack O'Neill. He is funny and sweet and kind and has a heart of gold just like MacGyver. I read the articles from the magazines online and talk shows that you appeared on and I find them very good. I love the stories about you and your daughter Wylie because it shows that you are a great father and really love being a dad like my dad. That was very cute on the Wayne Brady show where you had the star with Wylie's picture on it and then Wylie came up to hug you and you just had the sweetest smile on your face that showed your love for her. I hope that you and her had a very happy holidays and have a fun time on your birthday. I looked for the story that you were trying to find that you named Wylie after but I could not find it on the Internet. This is one of my favorite pictures of you and your daughter on the Internet. It's such a sweet picture. Well have a happy birthday and I hope God keeps on blessing you and your family with wonderful things.

Happy Birthday once again from Yorkshire. Just like a fine wine you improve with age and I know you will continue to do so. I am sorry to hear that you are leaving O'Neill behind and moving on. I have enjoyed SG-1 and will miss it when it finishes. I hope that your next project will be picked up by British T.V. or maybe you might like to try your hand at London's West End like many other famous American actors. Whatever comes next, I wish you every success and I hope that you have a very Happy Birthday.

Love you,


Stargate I like. The whim, the thoughtfulness, the humor, the adventure, bravo and please guide us still through stars. Happpy birthday, I wish you a lot of success and happiness. Kisses to Wylie.

Stargate, j'adore. La fantansie, la lègèreté, l'humour, l'aventure, bravo et merci de nous guider encore à travers les étoiles. Je vous souhaite un joyeux anniversaire, beaucoup de succès et de bonheur. Bisous à Wylie.


Bonsoir Rick,

C'est en français que j'ai décidé de t'écrire cette fois!

Je te souhaite du fond du coeur un heureux anniversaire et plein de bonnes choses pour ta famille et toi au cours de l'année qui vient!

J'ai la nostalgie de la série "MacGyver" et de son héros au sourire désarmant ainsi que des moyens non violents qu'il utilise pour déjouer les pièges de ses ennemis.

"Stargate", c'est un tout autre univers tellement cruel et... à l'image de ce que notre monde est en train de devenir!!! Je ne m'habitue pas à te voir l'arme à la main meme si c'est pour défendre la "bonne" cause!

Je préférais de loin la créativité et l'ingéniosité de MacGyver pour anéantir les "méchants."

Si "Stargate" préfigure ce que notre monde deviendra dans le futur, alors, moi - aussi je suis heureuse d'etre déjà passée comme toi "over the hill"!!!

Mais je suis institutrice et je m'évertue à donner à mes petits élèves des raisons et des motifs d'espérer créer un monde meilleur où il fera bon vivre....

Merci pour ton engagement envers la planète et surtout pour défendre et protéger les derniers territoires naturels et préservés qui y existent encore!

Bien qu'on ne se connaisse pas et que cela doit te faire étrange de recevoir tous ces messages d'étrangers, je veux te remercier pour tout le bonheur que tu as apporté et que tu continues d'apporter tout autour de toi!

Le monde en a plus que jamais besoin!

Affectueusement et gros bisous à ton petit trésor Wylie.

Brussels, Belgium

Hey Rick!

Have a super day, I really hope that you have a fantastic time!

My brother and I love Jack's character, and every laugh that you and the 'gate gang have blessed us with, thank you so much!

Best wishes from to

Dear Richard Dean Anderson!

I want to wish you all the best to your birthday! Have a lovely day and stay healthy and happy for all your life! Although you might not want to hear it for the 5628th time: I'm a huge fan of MacGyver! You made the character what it is still today (in Germany they show it again and again) and I really want to thank you!

Lots of love,


Hi, Richard Dean Anderson,

I wish you a happy birthday. You are a very good actor and I think in Stargate SG-1 you are THE BEST.

Big wishes,


I would like to wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY and hope you enjoy your day. Best wishes for the New Year also and I look forward to seeing Season 8 of Stargate.

Townsville, Australia

Oh Man - this is a first for me - never have sent a greeting to a star - but here goes - HAPPY BIRTHDAY from one "January baby" to another. I have ALWAYS enjoyed any series you have been in and movie - my only disappointment is two/fold - 1) that we don't see Legend in reruns and 2) that our local stations (in Canada) are not showing the most recent season of SG-1. But you don't need to hear all that - so again - have a very happy birthday!!!!

Hi Rick,

Happy Birthday.

I wish you all good things.

Hello Rick!

First time for me too on this special occasion!!! I wanna wish you a very, very and happy BIRTHDAY and I just hope you will have a splendid day and that you can celebrate it with your sweet daughter and everybody else you wanna have around ya on your big day! Wishing you all the best and especially a lot of health, fun and laughter for the future no matter where you are and what you are doing! Have known you from the MAC series for a long time, came across scifi a while ago and I do must admit I got addicted to it since!!! Keep up the good work Rick!

Here's for YOU....have a wonderful day and stay as you are, as you are wonderful!

PS: Would love to post a personal "woofwoof" from my furry boys to "Zoe".... but unfortunately that is not possible here...

My daughter grew up watching MacGyver. She learned men can be decent and nice (and exciting and handsome as well!) It was a big deal in our house. Thanks for giving that to her. Have a great birthday, continue to be a role model for your little girl as well.

PS - I'm now watching Stargate and loving it!

New York

Dear Rick,

I want to wish you a very happy Birthday. May all your wishes come true and may you have a wonderful day with your loved ones and of course your beautiful daughter Wylie. I know that one day she will be as smart and handsome as her daddy. Enjoy every single moment of her young life, because the day will come soon enough that she will leave her daddy for another man. Life goes too fast.

Thank you Rick, for all you ever did for us, your fans. You made us smile, even things weren't always that good.

You made us happy and taught us a lot about life, both as MacGyver and even as Jack O'Neill, you had your point of view. Although we're missing you in Stargate, since you cut back on your appearances, we can understand your reason. When you retire from the screen we will certainly miss you a lot, but you never ever will be forgotten. Thank you and keep up the good work you're doing.

Among so many others: I love you Rick

So here's a poem:

Miles Away

Miles away...endless far
Not even aware of my existence
Not knowing that I know
And yet... I love you so

Your beautiful brown eyes
Your gentle smile colors my day
You make me walk on clouds
And yet... that's why I love you so

Keeping my hopes up high
to meet you, once in my life
You sleep with other women though
And yet... I still love you so

I know you'll never be mine
and taste the water through the wine
But in my heart, you know why
My love for you will never die.

Happy Birthday Rick!

Rita P.

Watching MacGyver when I was starting out my career as an engineer has provided me with a can do attitude in my job as an I.T. engineer. Having only ever seen a few episodes when I was without guidance gave me the inspiration to try when I doubted my own abilities.

Thanks for making me believe in my own abilities.

P.S. I still use "MacGyverisms" in work to this day to solve problems.

All the best and SG-1 is cool.

"Knock yourself out" on the 23rd.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!! Thanks for all of your talent! Please know that we all appreciate what you do!

Hope you have a wonderful birthday. Much happiness and good wishes to you and your family.

May God bless you with all your dreams and wishes.

BTW - You were the first (and only) star that I had ever sent a fan letter and gift to (this was years ago) and you had responded back to me. That was so nice of you. Thanks.

Hi Rick,

Happy birthday, hope your day and future years are filled with happiness.

Good luck with the water projects! I'm hoping to get some experience in that field of work as I'm hoping to study environmental science next year!

Thanks for being a great entertainer - on dull days your performance can always raise a smile.


Jodie Leech xx

May your days be filled with joy, peace and love. May you never see or witness anger, unhappiness or hate in your lifetime.

You are a wonderful person. Your family is blessed to have you in their lives.

Your acting skills are phenomenal. Thank you for giving of yourself to so many fans for these past many years. And may the happiness and love your fans feel for you, reach you and inspire you to continue to grace the TV or 'big screen' with your presence.

Love always,

Philadelphia, PA


Happy Birthday to a fellow ANDERSON! It's hard to believe you are turning 54! Lucky for you, you just get better looking with age! Want to pass that secret along to us gals?

I appreciate all the time and energy you have spent entertaining us all these years. Mac was wonderful and I still watch the reruns, but I believe Stargate has let you grow as an actor and I love your character. I'm sorry your role will be less this year and next, but I understand your decision. Spending time with our children is the most important thing we can do. I respect what you are doing and support your decision. As a single parent I know how fast time flies. My own daughter will graduate from high school in 2005 and then be off to college. It seems like only yesterday she was a tiny baby. We cherish our time together. You must do the same with your daughter. I know you will.

I hope we will continue to see you on television after SG-1 ends, and not just in re-runs! Keep up the good work, both professionally and in your philanthropic endeavors as well. Enjoy your birthday and I hope 2004 brings you good things ... only good things.

Cheryl (ANDERSON) Higginson

Dear Rick,

I used to watch MacGyver with my dad and my brother. It was always a fun bonding experience for us to watch the show together. I have always been facinated by movies and television and I think that you are a very talented actor. My dad and I watch Stargate together every night it is on. Thank you for sharing your talents with us and telling such wonderful and interesting stories.

I wish you a wonderful and happy birthday! Hopefully one day I will be able to meet you, shake your hand, and thank you in person.

God Bless,


Hope it's a good one.

Love 'n' stuff,

Alison Morton xx

Rick, I hope your 54th birthday is full of happiness and love. I remember you as MacGyver and still today you are still an outstanding good looking guy. Keep on smiling and blessing people around the world with your work. You deserve several awards in what you do and you already have one in my heart. Give my love to Wylie and Apryl. Stay in great health and take care.

Audrey Peppers

Thank you Mr. Anderson for being the inspiration to 2 young boys. My grandson, Scott, who broke his leg playing sports 3 years ago and is still undergoing surgery, braces, therapy, etc... and to my friend's grandson who was so inspired by MacGyver that he was getting a carton of duct tape as a Christmas present. Unfortunately, this young boy, 8 years of age, passed away from the flu right before Christmas. The carton of duct tape was buried with him. Both of these youngsters looked upon you as their role model. My grandson will not let his leg problem get him down knowing what you have gone through with the bones you have broken and come out the way you have. And if the other lad had lived, you would also be the hero who he patterned himself after. What a testimony to you! To have youngsters set their goals to be like the man you are. I know you will never let them down! All the happiness in the world in the coming year and beyond and keep up the great work in Stargate! Youngsters are watching their hero, Richard Dean Anderson (aka MacGyver and Col. Jack O'Neill-2L's)!


Many happy returns from the U.K. I'm so pleased you've had success with your series... and SG-1 never fails to entertain and inform me... if only the real world reflected the 'sentiment' of such series... long may your success continue... I'm 53 in March this year, 2004... so I'm not far behind you. Always been a sci fi follower, and Amanda Tapping never fails to perk me up? Great choice for the part... something for everyone? Good luck, enjoy your day.

Happy Birthday! May you continue to be blessed and loved by friends and family throughout the coming years. You have truly blessed your fans by sharing your talents, as well as your love and humanity. Keep smiling and watch out for your knees on the slopes!!

Love Always,


Dear Richard,

I have been a fan for years and have seen your growth as an actor. I will always value my taped MacGyver segments as it helps me to remember one of your best efforts. Best wishes for a very Happy Birthday and many more.

Dear Richard,

Happy Birthday!


Dear My lifetime Hero ....

Happy Birthday to you Richard.
Happy New Year to you Richard.

From your lifetime fan,


Happy Birthday, I just want you to know that I'm so very happy that you have agreed to sign on to yet another year of Stargate SG-1. I'm sure you get tired from all the long hours and the physical demands of the show but your fans never get tired of watching you save the world from those nasty Goa'uld's! I'm sure that as you look back through this year you have thoughts of your Dad, some happy moments and some sad. We as fans have cried with you and laughed with you through the years and you have gotten me through some difficult moments in my life just by being able to watch you on MacGyver and Stargate SG-1. Thank You! I hope you have a wonderful birthday surrounded by the ones that are close to you. Keep Wylie close to you and cherish those moments that you have with her, they grow up so fast!

I love ya,

Wadena, Minnesota

Dear Richard,

Wishing you a very Blessed Birthday and many more to come!

I grew up watching MacGyver and certainly learned a thing or two about life in general. THANK YOU very much for the wonderful years...


Happy Birthday Rick,

I have enjoyed your work on television for a long time... While I am a fan I prefer to avoid "gushing" with emotion, so I'll keep this fairly simple.

Congrats on your 54th! And best wishes for the next 54. Always remember that "Today is the first day of the rest of your life!" Happy Birthday!

Also - I'd like to offer an invitation. We share a common interest - skiing. I work seasonal fulltime at a humble Pacific Northwest Ski Area that offers some of the best BackCountry territory around. (I'm not the most aggressive skier on the hill - but I know enough of the extreme skiers and boarders on our hill to know that all the hype about our BackCountry is true.)

Anyway - if you happen to be in the Seattle area you might take a little trip about 50 miles east on I-90 and drop by the Summit at Snoqualmie, home of the infamous Alpental. While I'm sure that purchasing a lift ticket or two is no trouble, I would be happy to treat you and a guest (perhaps Wylie and/or her Mom Apryl) to a day of skiing on me. (Heck, if you actually come I might even brave the BackCountry.)

It would be a thrill for all of us on Snoqualmie Pass to meet you and spend the day skiing! We know we're not glamorous like Whistler but we have something to offer for everyone. Stop by sometime and just tell them I sent you - they'll find me.

Again, Happy Birthday!

Thanks for everything you contribute to life!

A very happy Birthday to you, and many more of them. I have followed your shows, both MacGyver and Stargate, since their inception. You act naturally, and show emotions like the rest of us. It is a shame that your shows take so long to be screened in New Zealand. May your career be long and happy.

Happy Birthday, Rick!

We wish you all the best - especially health. But we don't think you even need the wish for good health, because you don't seem to get older.

Please stay on TV as long as possible and keep up with your wonderful work!

Happy Birthday and the best wishes from me. I hope you have a nice day with your Friends and your Family. Much fun with and remain please to us still many years celebrate.

Bye and wonderful greetings from Germany!


Dear Rick,

I just wanted to write a short note to wish you well. Wylie is lucky to have such a caring, involved father, and as a parent of young children I can understand your devotion to her. A lot of people could take a page from your book.

Speaking as a fan I just want you to know that you are missed on Stargate. Your presence brings a certain energy to the series, and when you are absent it's obvious in so many ways. Whether it be a humorous or dramatic turn for Colonel O'Neill you are always spot on. Personally I look forward to any screen time real life allows.

Never forget how much of a difference you've made in so many people's lives over the years. Mine included.

My sincerest wishes for a healthy, happy, and peaceful 2004.

Vermont, USA

I have been a fan since your General Hospital days and I just wanted to wish you a wonderful and heartfelt birthday wish. You are a wonderful person and father. Wylie is very lucky to have you as a father. You care about life and the things around you.

Have a wonderful day and many, many more to come.

Kaye Bauer

Hi Rick!

I want to wish you a very happy birthday! I hope you never lose your great sense of humour! I'm a big fan of STARGATE SG-1 and I'm waiting for the 7th season. I hope you will have a nice day and perhaps you can write me an e-mail. That were very great.

Greetings from Germany,

Plauen, Germany


Have a wonderful birthday and a blessed year. You have given me many. Please continue to do so for many more.

Wishing you a wonderful day, full of laughter and joy.

Thank you for bringing happiness to so many people around the world!


I would like to wish you a happy birthday and I hope you get the walking stick, slippers and the newspaper that you probably want!! LOL!!!....Rick?....It's a joke!!!!

Being serious now.... Wow - 54 years old!!! I've got to say you are a very, very sexy man (I'm only 17 - I shouldn't be thinking this!!) and I bet every woman would agree to that!! One other thing Rick - whatever you do, KEEP the silver hair it makes you look irresistible!!

So happy birthday, Rick, and I hope you have a long and healthy life - I sound like if I'm saying goodbye!! Give my love to Wylie for me!

Keep on Stargating!

Hi Rick,

I just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday. I hope it's everything you want it to be. My best wishes to you and your family.

San Antonio, TX

Hey, it's the first time I participate to such thing... so I join the chorus voices to wish you the best in your life for you and your family!

And of course, as anyone else I have a special request! I gave a drawing to Amanda Tapping, I hope you got it and enjoyed the new travellers through Stargate... Two twin Homer Simpsons (one in BDUs, one top class in a tuxedo, it reminds me nobody of course...) and coming out of nowhere a Santa Claus with his reindeer that actually made working the Stargate this year cause we got a season 8!!!

And as I always do strange stuff all the time lately, the Stargate has 2 more chevrons in case you feel the need to explore our part of the world and come by my home... You're invited anytime you want to...

Ok now this is a goodbye. Please do us the favour to enjoy your time and yourself, as I try to do more and more lately! Any resemblance is really expected...

Bises - French kisses (on both cheeks... of course!)


Dear Rick,

Happy day! Will love you forever, you "twinkle in the eye" guy! Bless you for giving us so much great entertainment over the years - from a "mature" fan since your General Hospital days. You just keep getting better! Isn't wisdom great!? Many continued blessings and laughter always for you!

South Louisiana

So many messages! So little from Belgium. Well here's another one for you Rick from Belgium.

Happy Birthday Rick!

I hope we get to meet each other some day and have good conversation. I'm a fan of you since the day I've met MacGyver on television. I was about 4 or 5, now I'm 17 and I hope to become an actor/writer/director one day. But of course school comes first, right? Sometimes I start on writing scripts but it's not as simple as I thought it would be and leave it unfinished. Well, before I really start blabbering on of what I wanna become I better stop. This is suppose to be a birthday message so I'll say it again...

Happy Birthday Rick!

54 years is a special year. You are not 20 anymore but you are not 80 yet. Keep up your good work.

Happy Birthday again Rick!


Happy b-day Rick!!! I love Stargate SG-1 (duh who doesn't lol). Hope 2004 is a great year for you and your family.

P.S. My friends think I'm weird b/c I like you and b/c you are 54 but I'm like I don't care he's still HOT!!

Russellville, Missouri

Happy Birthday Ricky Dean,

I wish you all the best for you and your family. Have a nice party and go on for many happy and powerful years.

Happy Birthday Rick. I'm only 10 years behind you and have loved watching you ever since you first played in MacGyver. I look forward each week to seeing you on another adventure. By the way, 54 ain't that old. Keep in mind that it ain't the years, it's the mileage. And you're sure looking like a low mileage model to me. Keep up the good work. And God bless you.

I am one of your biggest fans and one for many many long years. Hope your birthday is the best and you continue for many more years to come. You have always been the best looking actor and you will only get better with age. You are the best and the best looking to come along in awhile. Hang in there and hope to see more of you on TV.

Hi Rick,

I wish you all the best for your birthday and enjoy your day. I'm a very big fan of you and I love MacGyver and Stargate! Last summer I was in Canada, including Vancouver. It was fantastic! I also visited the Bridge Studios and some locations of Stargate & MacGyver. I'm not sure if you really read these greetings but I hope so.

Lot of hugs,

Basel, Switzerland

Happy Birthday Richard! We (husband and I) have watched you since MacGyver began. In fact I have some on tape from the beginning. We still watch every day, both MacGyver and SG-1. Anyway, Congratulations and BEST WISHES.....

HAPPY BIRTHDAY OLD MAN! I can say that because I'm old too!!

I have been a fan of yours since the old days when young Dr. Jeff graced my daytime TV screen and have loved all of your work including the wonderfully creative but short lived "Legend" with John DeLancie.

I LOVE Stargate and everything about it. The ensemble, the humor, the subtle Star Trek references, and it just keeps getting better.

Have a wonderful year and many more. From a forever fan!

NL Coglan

Hi Richard,

Another year and you still look good. Like fine wine, you only seem to get better. Love and Prayers for you and yours, and for another year of blessings.


Hi Rick,

Happy birthday to you and best wishes from Germany. You're doing a great job and we enjoy your character and everything you've done. Please visit the Stargate Convention 2004 in September. Have a wonderful birthday and thank you for all...

Dear Rick,

May this year be the best so far for you (and your daughter)! Thanks so much for helping to make this world a better place and for continuing the environmental education of the general public. Ever think of running for office?

All the best,


Happy Birthday Richard Dean Anderson!!! I love you MacGyver!!! You are soooooo so cute... I luv u!! Could you possibly send me an autographed picture of you!! Thanks and Happy Birthday.

P.S. U look like you're only 20!!! I luv u...


Amy Tye

I'd like to wish you a very happy birthday!!!

For a long time already, you are my favourite actor. Since I've seen you in MacGyver for the first time, I was filled with admiration and respect for your performance. I love the way you put down the character of Jack O'Neill. I hope that you will continue doing what you're so good at, so that we can keep seeing you on Belgian television. Make of this birthday the best ever. Lots of kisses for you and Wylie. xxxxxxxx


Dear Rick!

My name is Iris and I'm twelve. I like to see Stargate and MacGyver as often as possible. But it's only sent once per day (MacGyver) or week (Stargate) in the German TV. You are the greatest actor of the world and I'm your greatest fan. So I want to congratulate you for your birthday. Further much success with your work, luck, health and a loooong life I wish to you. Now have fun at your birthday party. Stay funny and get simply these best, best wishes.

P.S.: When will you be going to come to your fans in Germany? I'm looking forward to that date.

P.P.S.: By the way, would you be so kind, to send an autogramm-card to me?

P.P.P.S.: I like you very, very much...


Iris A. Bluemel

Happy Birthday, Rick!

54 seems like an awfully big number, but looking back must hold a lot of great memories for you - sure has for me!

Now that Wylie is getting older you should start thinking about her college funds...

So go for it, say yes to that big screen romantic comedy you've been dying to do!

Health, wealth, and happiness in 2004!

Hi Rick,

From one Aquarius to another, hope you have a most excellent birthday. Mine is the 22nd, pretty close. Guess that's why I feel kinda close to you, only wish we had more time to talk when I came by the studio. Anyway, I'll be celebrating 36 for at least 4 days, but don't know if I'll be aging much after that. Hope you get everything you want and more. Peace, Love, Happiness and continued success!!!

You once said you don't save lives you entertain, well from one of your character's worst nightmare people, a biomedical scientist who saves lives and isn't in the least entertaining, may I say you have enriched many lives and continue to do so. May you and your little girl enjoy good health and happiness and never need my brand of work. Happy birthday and may your God go with you.



Dear RDA:

Happy birthday, and thank you for supporting the American Red Cross!

Thanks again for signing the tiny vests for the Armed Forces Emergency Services (AFES) bears last summer. One of the three raised $100 in the charity auction at Trek Expo, June 2004. The other two went to Gatecon2003 and Sekh's Party auctions, results unknown.

Happy 54th Birthday Richard Dean Anderson. I am still waiting for the DVD of MacGyver. I love that show. I hope that it comes out soon. I hope that Stargate SG-1 can go for year 9. I have seasons 1 through 4. It is one of the best Scifi shows of all time. The show works because of the stories. Happy Birthday from one of your biggest fans. One of them.

Many happy returns on your birthday - you've seen many changes in the world - good & bad - but you have given all your fans good family fun & entertainment throughout the years! Even the extreme suspect movies to the sitcoms and shows you guest starred in...... a good variety for all... it's hard to pick a "Best of RDA" movie, film, show! Family is important and little ones grow up so fast these days, so many more wonderful birthdays are wished for you and your family!!!!

Thank you very much for all the entertainment you have provided to me and everyone. I enjoyed MacGyver as a kid and love SG-1 now. Have a very happy birthday and I hope many more to come.


I would like to say Happy Birthday and hope you have a great day. Keep up the great work on Stargate SG-1 and hope you get to spend your birthday with your family.


Happy Birthday Richard you still look good!

Sherry Barr

Happy birthday from France Richard! Have a nice day!!!


Kent, United Kingdom

Dear Richard Dean Anderson,

I wish you a very happy birthday from France!!!! You are the best actor I have ever known!!! I follow you since MacGyver!!!!


Ruelle, France

Happy 54th Birthday Rick!

I hope you have a nice day with everyone you love and that you may continue to do what you do best: Live life to the fullest and have fun!

On a more serious note: I've noticed (through interviews) that you are turning into your father, the teacher, which I hope you will see as a compliment (that's what it's meant to be). I know this year you lost him but isn't it good to know that a part of him still lives on in you? The things you do at Wylie's school remind me of MacGyver too. It's a thing he would have done for sure! Teaching the kids something (foreign words) before they get a reward (food). I like it.

I admire and respect your dedication to your daughter, and I'm thankful you are still willing to postpone your 'retirement' for us, as much as for yourself. It keeps you young!

Here's to another year full of FUN!


Tessa (Mac)

I hope you have a wonderful birthday that brings you everything you desire. May you have many more, and may you bring us many more years of sharing your gift.

Rugby, England


I would like to say that you're my favorite actor since MacGyver. (I'm 18 years!) You are funny, sympathetic, (your lady is lucky!)! I wish you much happiness with your family (above all your daughter!) and still happy birthday! I kiss you, and sorry for my English (I'm not good!!)! Goodbye!

Thionville, France

For Someone We Enjoy and Admire - For Richard,

Your life seems so full, what could I wish for you? You have a great career. You have a child to love and who loves you. You make charitable efforts a priority in your life. You give so much and ask nothing in return. You play a character that balances humor with leadership - if only we could all be like Jack. You have a lifetime of memorable roles and achievements. So, my wish for you is love and happiness - and a Happy Birthday. We'll be thinking about you on your special Day.


I loved watching MACGYVER on tv as a child. It brought me many hours of fun and a couple of hours being told off by my mum for trying to make bombs in the back garden! Happy Birthday! I will always remember MACGYVER tv show!

P.S. Stargate is good as well!

Andrew Coulson

Wish you have a very nice birthday party

Happy Birthday Rick, hope you have a really great Birthday, wish I could be there to celebrate it with you. xxx


Hi Rick,

Hope you have a great birthday and spend it with the people you love.

Love and best wishes,

Maria H.

I've been trying to think of something to say that hasn't been said, doesn't sound corny or silly, but would still convey a Happy Birthday. I guess simple is best, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I will miss seeing you on Stargate SG-1. Best of luck for the coming year!

Bloomsburg, PA

Like the other fans, I wish you'll have more and more and more fun time! Happy Birthday. All the best.


Hello Richard...from Ohio USA... My husband and I are great fans of yours... although I remember you from the days of Jeff Webber on General Hospital... thought you were GREAT then and still think your GREAT... MacGyver is a favorite of ours still... and Stargate is set on our Tevo Direct TV is set to record whenever it is on... it's a wonderful show... so nice to see shows on TV that the children and grandchildren can watch... keep up the good work... and of course HAPPY BIRTHDAY!


Wow! A whole year older....

Have a marvelously magical birthday!

(Having only recently seen you as MacGyver for the first time, I promise your hair looks much better now.)

Have fun, and smile lots on TV, as it makes all the women in my house swoon at you.

Hey!! Happy birthday!! I hope you spend a great day with your family and friends. It was very nice hearing you speaking a bit in Spanish (in "Evolution II"). You did it very well and furthermore I have read you'd like to learn Spanish so I wish you good luck and patience (as I need it too for English). Excuse my grammar errors (I have a little problem with prepositions).

Mr. Anderson,

Thank you. Thank you for all your hard work in fundraising to help with all the charities you are involved with. You are helping to make great changes in the world. You have been a great inspiration to me to become more involved, not just in charity work but making sure to enjoy life. Also, thank you for continuing with Stargate for as long as you have. I know I enjoy the way you bring your personality into your role. Even though it saddens me to think Stargate is coming to an end, I certainly understand the desire to spend more time with family. So thank you for all your hard work and the enjoyment you have brought to so many. Have a wonderful birthday with your daughter and family and I hope this next year brings you much happiness.

With all my heart I'd like to wish you a Happy Birthday.

May you enjoy your day with family and with your precious daughter Wylie.

You have made me laugh and cry and all for good reasons. Thank you for doing another season of 'Stargate SG-1'. I understand your priority is Wylie and time with her is precious. You are a wonderful dad and Wylie will grow up always knowing this. You both look very happy together.

I wish you health and happiness in all that you do, but please don't lose touch with us.

Have a wonderful day, and don't eat all the cake!!!

Always I give my love to you and Wylie, and please give her a big hug from me. She's a wee smasher!! (Scottish slang for beautiful)


P.S. I hope you were able to accept my gifts.

Dear Richard,

First of all many happy returns of the day. You are a fab actor and you seem to be a great father as well who has a sense of family. With MacGyver and Stargate you've brought and still bring fun and happiness in my life and also some colour in my daily routine. Therefore I'd like to say thank you. Especially as MacGyver you've made me believe in a better world that is not only full of egoism and destroyers. Sometimes I even wished it came true. However remain the way you are and continue acting. We love you all! Lots of love from one of your biggest fans.

Zurich, Switzerland


Wishing you another wonderful year for the many you've given all of us fans. I've enjoyed your work since General Hospital, cried when MacGyver was no longer in production, and rejoiced when Stargate was made!

We enjoy your humor and your talent. I hope you have achieved a peace and happiness in your own life. Best to you and your family, especially Wylie!

Happy Birthday and many more!

New Mexico (yes, it's one of the 50 states!)

Dear Mr. Anderson,

I wish you a very happy birthday! And also I want to take this opportunity to tell you that you are an incredible actor. You did a great job with the character MacGyver. Usually I don't like science fiction films but when I saw your name appear in "Stargate" I gave it a shot... and was positively surprised. Have seen you in other films as well but I have to say that the biggest impression was the character you had in "Through the Eyes of a Killer" that was marvelously played. Also the film where you played a father that had lost his son and the meeting with a young boy that changed the father's life in a positive way... Well, what I'm trying to tell you here is that you manage to perform the character you play excellent, no matter if it's as a Colonel, a pilot, a killer, a family father, a cop, a lieutenant, or as a major, you are one of the few actors that is not categorized in a certain line... I also wish you and your family a very great future, filled with much happiness and laughter.

Take care and God Bless you and your family.

Hey Rick! What's crackin? Anyway just wanted to say happy bday! Hope you have a great one! Oh and by the way, I will NEVER forget Stargate season 4 "Window of Opportunity". I think that's your best one! "Lose it. It means, go crazy, nuts, insane, bonzo, no longer in possesion of one's faculties, three fries short of a Happy Meal, WACKO!" I love that one!

Have a good one!

Dearest Sir Richard,

First of all, allow me to greet you HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY. How I wish I could see you and greet you in person. Ever since I saw MacGyver on T.V. I became your number 1 fan here in the Philippines. I even looked for your poster and hang it on the wall of my room. I am very much inspired by the role you play on the said T.V. series. How I wish I could have a full copy of all the episodes.

Well so much for my wishes. I just hope you'll be very happy on your birthday together with your family and some close friends. Hope you'll visit the Philippines someday. One more wish, I hope you'll do a movie that will also be aired here in the Philippines so I could watch. Long life and always be happy. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MacGyver. Regards to "Pete", your best friend. God Speed....

Ms. Jhen 31

Mr. Anderson,

First things first... Happy Birthday! I would also just like to say that I think you're an AWESOME actor. I think you're great in everything that you do, especially Stargate. I wish you and your family the best of luck. And hope that you have a great year!

Love & Hugs,

Dear Mr. Anderson,

I want to wish you more than a happy birthday. I wish you a happy life. You have been part of my weekly routine for so long that it seems I can't spend a week without watching one of your films. Countries apart, worlds apart (metaphorically speaking) yet so near.


Porto Alegre, Brasil

Creeping Into My Heart

In the field around his body
he spreads his soul so gently,
unleashing mystery and shaking
my vague recesses violently...

His movements seep through the air,
dissipating like a dream;
like mist leaning slowly
on a calm feeling-stream...

I wonder what force he encloses
between the walls of his figure!
I cling hopelessly to all the hopes
that his eyes in my eyes trigger...

Then swiftly he goes on his way
and meeting becomes only a wish
floating atop the lake of my-life's-clay,
like a young and lovely dead fish...

Stranger, watch out what you unleash;
Gather my tears as careful as you can...
Be merciful; be tender, I beseech!
Otherwise my only joy would slowly wan...


Even though I am almost as half as your age, you are closer to life than I am; through that you give me a smile...


Vill Gléck fir dain Gebuetsdag!!

That's Luxemburgish and simply means: Happy Birthday!

Have a wonderful time and best wishes to you and your future.

I'm glad to see you back in Season 8!!!

Hope you have a great birthday!


Hiya Rick, Jolijn

Jolijn Wishing ya a happy birthday from both me and my character, Colonel Angel Dean, who is jumping around excited as her favourite actor is turning 54.
Jolijn Jolijn

She of course is making the base unsafe for her husband James (Jack) O'Neill (the clone who was brought back by Harlan making Angel the happiest Colonel in the world, (well Taurak seeing she isn't human) talking about Richard Dean Anderson all day.
Poor James, he feels neglected. Jolijn

But I on the other hand am making my house unsafe about both you and me. I'm turning 19 the 28 of January and my best friend is coming over. Ya know Zarina we both mailed you last year about how we met. Jolijn

Anyways wanted to give ya the best wishes for Jolijn
And of course send ya happy birthday greetings.
Have the greatest birthday ever, oeehhh oeh and save me some birthday cake.


"23 januarie, 2000 houres"

Angel roomed the base uneasy.
Hun what's wrong? Something with SG-2.
Nothing James, really, just thinking about Rick. Again?
Well it is his birthday, I wish I could do something for him, I mean he is playing in a series about our life.
I know I know, why don't ya get him here?
Huh this base is classified.
So did that ever stop you before?
Ohh fer cryin' out loud just go get him.
Angel hurried out the base driving over to Rick's home, seeing him there happily with his family discussing whether they would go skiing this year or not.
Knocking on the door Angel got kinda nervous but as Rick opened the door all worries flew out of her mind.
Mister Anderson, she said in her best Colonel voice, I am Colonel Angel Dean and I wish to discuss some business with you, but not here, this is all classified. It has to do with your show.
Sorry, he asked confused?
Just come with me sir.
April I'll be gone for a few hours.
What Rick!!
Sorry something about StarGate.
Leaving April muttering to her self he stepped in Angel's car and they drove to the real Cheyenne Mountain.
What is this place?
You will see sir, she smiled as she gave him a pass and then guided him to the entrance.
Well Mister Anderson the lieutenant greeted him as he gave back Angel's pass, Colonel he saluted her.
You know the General is not going to like this.
Don't worry I know she laughed.
Come on Rick she said eased let's show you around.
His eyes widened as she called him by his first name but he let her show him every corner of this somewhat familiar base.
So uhmm where are we going?
The gate room...
Gate... room...
Yup, James!!
James turned around, what!!!! I was just preparing my fishing line, now its a mess... owww hi he said confused as he looked in the face of both Angel and Rick.
I... he... he looks like me.
Hey you're right Angel giggled hadn't noticed that before. This is my husband James O'Neill. With two LL's there is a James O'Neil with one L but he has no sense of humor at all.
Okay... was all that Rick could stammer and to make things more easy for him Jack walked by.
Angel, watcha doin'?
Showing Rick the base.
Rick, Mister Anderson how ya doin'.
What... he... I... Aw Man who is he.
Jack O'Neill with two LL's...
Let me guess there is one with one L but he has no sense of humor at all.
Good one Daniel laughed as the young scientist walked through the halls with Major Samantha Carter.
So Colonel Dean where are you going? she asked.
To the gate.
As the entered the hall Rick about fainted, what the...
This is the StarGate, the real one Angel explained as Rick looked with great disbelief at the gate powering up and whooshing open.
All you act is real and so is the SGC.
Both Teal'c and Angel's team walked through the gate and greeted their Commanding officer.
Except for Teal'c that's my team, SG-2. Doctor Jarod Sun, Major Nerys Page and Lieutenant Logan Wolf.
Nerys and myself where not human we might look like you, but we're not she said seriously.
This is a joke right?
Colonel!!! boldered through the gate room.
Uhm yes general.
Report to my office ASAP!!
Yes, Sir.
Entering his office she saw he was truly mad, brace your self whispering to Rick.
Who is this man and what is he doing on this base unauthorized.
After explaining and getting yelled at Angel was allowed to show him the rest of the base if Rick promised to keep it quiet and only to use it in his show.
Yes General he prommised still not believing this was realy true.
Colonel you ship out in an hour to Taurak...
Yes sir Angel smiled, she had been waiting to go back home for a while and see how her sis was doing, it had only been a month since the Goa'uld had been removed but she seemed to be doing better that she was supposed to.
Uhm General, can I tag along, Rick asked uncertain of the answer.
What do you think Colonel?
Why not I'll keep an eye out, sir.
Alright then get him a uniform.
After taking one of James's uniforms (that fit perfectly) Angel and Rick walked up to the Gate.
Chevron 6 encoded...
Well this is it Rick she smilled...
So why did you show me all this? Rick asked.
Chevron 7 encoded...
Be course I'm a real fan of the show and you and well let's just say I'm not a big fan of rules and reports so I thought I'd do something bold for your birtday and show you the real StarGate and my life, as I know so many of yours.
Chevron 8 locked.
Rick smiled as he grabbed Angel's hand, lead the way Colonel.
Entering the horizon Angel shouted some orders to her team.
They entered a bright and sunny world and some childeren ran towards them.
Ta nor in non alan ta they yelled as Angel greeted them.
Guess we're not in Kansas any more Toto...
Ya got that right Rick, Angel kissed him on the cheek, Happy birthday. Jolijn

Jolijn "Colonel Angel Dean"

Well there ya got it that's my birthday wish for you this year Rick, hope ya like it. Best of luck for this year and keep doing what you do. Always stay yourself because that's what we love the most, not just your shows. But you and all what you stand for, your family, your goals, nature, life, your friends and fans. Go do something you love and whether you stop acting or not I will always be there looking back at what you did together with all of the other fans all over the world.

I wish you the best birthday you have ever had!

Thank you for the wonderful gift of humor and a smile that you give me every week on Stargate SG-1. I never miss an episode. I wish I had seen your MacGyver shows, but I just never did. If I ever catch MacGyver on cable television, I will be sure and watch.

A very happy birthday to you, and many, many more. Keep up the good work on SG-1.

Much as I've enjoyed your work over the years, what I admire most is the way you've used your success to build an authentic life for yourself. That's why, though your possible retirement is sad for fans, I applaud your thoughtful decision to wrap up a chapter of your life and move on to a new one. All the best for the coming year -- may you find much joy and love in all your endeavors!


Happy happy birthday from a fellow Aquarian in sunny San Diego (which I hear is one of your favorite cities). I am a long time fan who thinks you have made Jack O'Neill the best character on television today. Thanks for providing so much to your fans over the years and for your support of so many wonderful environmental causes!

To Richard,

Hi from the UK. Hope you have a fantastic birthday and that you get everything you wish for. Hope you had a nice Christmas and New Year and that 2004 is good to you. Enjoying the new season of Stargate and hope it lasts another season.

Best wishes to your girlfriend and daughter.

Happy 54th Birthday again and hope you enjoy yourself!

Hey Richard,

Hope you have a brilliant birthday and many more to come. You are my role model and I think you are a fabulous actor and a beautiful person. I absolutely adore you. I hope that your daughter and girlfriend are happy and I send my best wishes to them. Again I hope you have a fantastic birthday and enjoy every minute of it.

I have loved you in Stargate. It wouldn't be the same without you but if you feel inclined to pursue other avenues I hope you'll be successful and happy in whatever you do. Have a very happy birthday and love and best wishes to your family. My loss is their gain!

Dear Richard,

I wish you a happy birthday and may your all wishes be fulfilled.

With many thanks for acting the dear character of Col. O'Neill (a true action hero).


Click image to view a sequence.

I read recently in an e-mail posted in the SG-1 yahoo group that you intend to retire from acting and build your house in California. May I be so bold to suggest that, in case you retire from entertainement business, to build your house in Florida. A while ago, in Los Angeles they have been torched, slimmed and shaken in a span of two years; in Florida you have access to an ocean - the Atlantic (which always has a cold water) and a sea - the Caribbean - (which most time of the year has a warm water). Just a suggestion.

We will not surrender even in death. You will not be forgotten. (SG1 Allegiance)

Dear Rick,

Happy birthday and many, many more.

I've always enjoyed your work (except GH... never into soaps)

There is no Stargate SG-1 without Jack O'Neill!

(The other people are just set decoration)

I hate the reduced schedule but completely understand and approve of the reasoning behind it. Thank you for giving us O'Neill even if in reduced roles for seasons 7 and 8.

I would LOVE to see a Legend movie if you're so inclined.

The silver becomes you; don't hide it!

Hi Rick,

All my best wishes to your birthday and your new year of life. Especially health to you and your family, which is most important!

Last year I sent you greetings, too. And by the way, the offer still exists (the beer!). Enjoy the time with your daughter Wylie. They grow up so fast and she is such a sweet little person!

Hope you'll have a very special birthday with the ones you love. We all think of you!

Greetings and stay as you are.


From a small town near Hamburg, Germany

Happy 54th Birthday, Richard! I hope it's a good one! I'll turn 47 the 22nd! Here is a poem I wrote several years ago.


Deep dark eyes, slender face, heart-shaped lips, and tender hands.
College days of heated anger, and travels across the land.

Tall and slim, his body tan, his voice is music to my ears.
Street corner mime and acting that shines, I speak of his long ago years.

Who is this man with wheat-gold hair who comes in dreams at night?
His voice it soothes and eases my pain; his presence makes things right.

Is he real or just fantasy, to touch him be in vain?
To wake to shadows in the air, the tears I do restrain.

If by chance he should be real, with him my thoughts I share.
Of feelings that churn within my heart, of knowing how I care!

I wrote this for you July, 1992... Just wish the book I had planned to send to you had made it... Sorry it didn't! Best wishes throughout the rest of your life...

Always, Karen Sue Reed (a friend and fan)

Dear Richard,

I wish you a happy birthday, and another wonderful year with your family. I have been a fan for many, many years, and often it has been only your wry sense of humor that gets me through bad days. Thanks for the years of MacGyver (WHEN will it be in DVD format?) and Stargate - I have been a sci-fi fan since age 7, when my dad introduced me to Robert Heinlein, Pohl, Asimov, etc. and still am to this day. As a teacher of Ancient Civilizations, what could be better than a combination of ancient Egyptian gods and sci-fi, especially when it has your distinct mark on the dialogue and characters. Thank you for another year, please stay with it....... and have many happy days with Wylie.

Dear Mr. Anderson:

You wouldn't know me if you tripped over me, but I'm going to wish you a "Very Happy 54th Birthday" in 2004.

I've enjoyed the acting challenges you've met and the goals you've reached over the past 25+ years. Like an exceptional bottle of Chateau Ste. Michelle wine, you get better and better with age and experience.

May your 54th birthday be a time of great joy, happiness and fulfillment. Keep on shining and keep on working towards an environmentally safe world!

P.S. The snow at Mount Baker is great and the lift tickets are cheaper than Whistler! Come on down to Washington State and have some fun!

Best wishes,

Hi Rick,

Just wanted to say Happy Birthday to you and wish you well. I have been enjoying watching some early MacGyver reruns here in England. Hope they do the later series as well.

I work in nature conservation for a tiny, independent charity so am delighted that you are lending your name to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and others. High profile performers like yourself can influence so many more people than most 'conservationists' can hope to reach so you are doing a great job.

Keep going!

With best wishes,


Happy Birthday from a long-time fan now living in the US Virgin Islands. The weather is great and we have very active Literacy and Conservation volunteers. Come on down!

I just want you to know that your character, MacGyver, has helped me survive life, in watching your performance as the MacGyver character always looking for the good in everyone and every adventure. I have survived cancer, divorce and at an early age disability. I keep thinking about MacGyver, he would find the positive in all of this... I even named my precious sealpoint Siamese tom cat MacGyver... which has long time since passed on to one of his nine lives... That's thinking positive for MacGyverisms....

I like the soap General Hospital.

Karin Wohlert-Wiegel

Happy birthday Rick! I hope you have a fantastic birthday! I am one of your biggest fans. You are a brilliant and gifted actor who should be in the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. You deserve it so much. You are belivable in every character you're in especially in the movie Thru the Eyes of a Killer. I have that on tape but can't watch it because it scares the heck out of me. I wrote you a letter I hope you got it okay. Stay safe and God bless you. HAPPY BIRTHDAY RICK! Hugs to you.

Hope you have a fabulous birthday! Thanks for all your hard work this year on Stargate SG-1. I've enjoyed watching you a lot and appreciate the fact that you've stuck with the show. Hope you get to spend your birthday doing something you love and with those you love like Wylie. Happy Birthday and many more!

Happy Birthday to you! I hope you have a wonderful day plus many more! But I really hate the fact that this will be the final season of SG-1. I have been watching you for years and I do mean years. The e-mail address is not just any number!

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?

Rob Spidle

Hello again,

It's hard to believe that another year has passed. I hope you have a great day, enjoy it and relax. I hope we see more of you this next season. Have a very happy birthday.

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.

Jennette Battisby

Thank you for giving us so many wonderful times on TV. Please continue many, many years. You are great!

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!

Dear Richard, my mom and I wish you a very happy birthday and all the best for your future. We are great fans of Stargate and have reserved all Wednesday evenings for this fantastic serial. We love Colonel Jack O'Neill and hope you will act him a long, long time more.

Best wishes from Germany,


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.

New York

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.


Dear Richard,

First of all, from the bottom of my heart, I wish you a very happy beloved birthday!

Best Regards,


Homer Simpson


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,

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 I'm writing you a message again... it's 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! I'm 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 that's the only possibility for me to "see" you.... so please don't 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!

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!


Mary Ann

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,

Janice xxx

Happy birthday to you direct from Germany!

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

It's a pleasure to see you every week on TV as Jack O'Neill. 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!

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,

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,

Hi Rick,

I'd just like to say I'm a big fan of all your work I've seen to date MacGyver included but since I was a little too young to see it here in UK first time round (14 yrs ago I think) I've just discovered it in the last year and I think it's great. But without doubt I have to say the work all the crew on Stargate do a totally fab job but you get me the most so:

Thanks for Mac.
Thanks for all 8 seasons playing Jack O'Neill.
Thanks for making my Gran (she likes Mac loads).

Stay Happy and Safe Always.

Oh yeah one last thing,



HAPPY BIRTHDAY Rick!!! It's MY BIRTHDAY TOO!!!!! I was born on January 23, 1970!!! It's SOOOOOOOOOO COOL to have the SAME BIRTHDAY AS YOU!!! I absolutely am SOOO HOOKED to Stargate!!! I always tell everyone, "He's GOT THE SAME BIRTHDAY AS ME!!!" That show is so much fun and I am soooo addicted! All I can say is THANK YOU for making the show such a success and I LOVE LOVE LOVE THE HUMOR you put into O'NEILL all the characters!!!!!!!! Who doesn't LOVE to laugh! Anyways, did I say that it is SO COOL TO HAVE THE SAME BIRTHDAY as YOU!?!?! LOL! OH, OK, I'll quit now!

Dear Richard:

I cannot imagine a bigger fan than I am. It started with MacGyver and then Legend and Stargate....

I wish you a very special birthday... Hope you share it with your little daughter and special friends... Nothing could make me happier than if you would ever contact me... I am struggling with learning disabilities and if I am down, the thought that Stargate will be on TV, makes me always very happy again.

Consider yourself kissed on the cheek...

With love,

Hi Rick,

I just want to wish you a very very happy birthday. Feliz Cumpleaños!!!!

It's the second time I post here and I'm happy to be able to congratulate you again in the name of all the Mexican fans you have thanks to MacGyver, Stargate it's not that famous for many reasons (ie, it's cut off 2 years ago from cable tv). Anyway don't forget about us the Mexican fans. We love and Admire You. TE QUEREMOS Y ADMIRAMOS.

And just a little bit of our traditional song for birthday parties (las mañanitas):

**** Estas son las mañanitas que cantaba el rey david a los muchachos bonitos se las cantamos asi, despierta mi bien despierta mira que ya a amanecio ya los pajarillos cantan la luna ya se metio... ***

*** This are the mañanitas that sang the King David, for the pretty boys we sing it like this. Wake up darling wake up look it's already started the day, the birdies sing and the moon is gone... ***

Dear Richard,

I wish you a Happy Birthday and I want to thank you for all these years of joy and happiness. From General Hospital to Stargate you've given me some of my best moments of my life. I love the humor (subtle or not) you put in your characters.


I wish you happy birthday and another years full of joys and good people. I love you and your character as Colonel Jack O'Neill. I celebrated birthday 2nd January too. Bye bye.

Your big fan,

Czech Republic

Hey Rick,

To your birthday I wish you much luck and health as well as further much success. You were simple as MacGyver and as Colonel Jack O'Neill the best one.


Dear Richard,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you have a wonderful day doing what makes you happiest. I'd be willing to bet your little angel fits somewhere in that equation. Have a GREAT day.

Oh by the way, I'm a big fan of SG-1. I look forward to each episode. Every member of the team is so likeable, (especially Jack). His sense of humor adds so much to the show. Until I started watching SG-1, I was not much of a scifi fan. SG-1 has somewhat changed my view about some scifi.

Anyway, hope you have a happy and healthy birthday. However, don't do anything too dangerous, we can't have Jack laid up and unable to tape new and exciting episodes of SG-1!

PS: If you ever find yourself in my neck of the woods, I'd be more than happy to give you and yours a grand tour of our beautiful, historic city.

Best wishes,

Dear Rick,

I wish you an happy birthday on 23rd January. It's every time the same thing, so be happy, make your wishes come true... I hope to see you always on TV, you're a so great actor and see you on screen makes a great day.

Be always as you are.

Too cool, happy birthday!


Hi Rick,

Happy Birthday. All my best wishes for you and your family in this new year. Celebrate your birthday with your family and all your friends. May God bless you.

Thanks for making me a better person. Have fun.

All my best,



I think of you as Mac since I'm just now catching MacGyver on TVLand. I'm not sure where the eighties went, but I seem to be stuck in them. (I'm also a cult fan of the Simon & Simon TV show; remember them?) Anyway, MacGyver is an enlightening show. I'm beginning to think outside the box in my own situations and becoming more sensitive to others as your character was on the show; and for real from what I've read.

Also, I'm just begining to watch Stargate now that it will be going off the air. I'll catch up one of these decades! Anyway, it's nice to be able to relate to someone in my own age group and to know there is at least one kind man left.

Many Happy Returns. How about a MacGyver movie showcasing 50-something ingenuity?

Thanks for the good times,

Judy A. Shively

Hallo Mr. Anderson,

I wish you a happy birthday. I also have to thank you for all the nice hours that I had when I saw you on TV. You really have a wonderful job, but I also know it's a hard job. Have a nice day with your family on your birthday and remember that there are all over the world persons that will think of you that day. Excuse me for my English, it is not perfect.

I just wanted to wish you a happy 54th birthday coming up. Give Wylie a big kiss, she's so cute. I want to see more pictures of her.

Long Island, New York

Dear Rick,

Happy birthday, I wish you all the best (health, good luck and all you want).

The greatest presents are children and I wish you many hours with your daughter Wylie. At about 3 weeks I will be mother and I hope, our child will be born quickly, but healthy is very important.

I'm a big fan for Stargate and I hope, the 8 season is coming.

For your future I wish you all you want.

(Sorry for my bad English)


Hi Rick,

For more than 20 years I have enjoyed watching you on TV. Thank you so much for all those television memories. Happy birthday to you! I hope your special day is everything you want it to be. My wish for you is that the coming year is filled with peace, love, and happiness.

Dear Richard:

You have been such an inspiration to me, even more so now that I'm going through a difficult time in my life. Seeing the relationship you have with Wylie has been extremely uplifting to me. God Bless you both.

For all the joy you give to others, I hope that all of these well-wishes from fans, bring you the same joy. While I shall miss seeing you on tv, it brings me more happiness knowing that Wylie will spend more time with her Daddy.

May the good Lord continue to bless you, Wylie, and your family with health, peace, happiness, love, and all good things in life. Wishing you a blessed 54th birthday. Here are a few quotes that reflect my feelings for you.

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." - Marcel Proust

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart." - Helen Keller

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." - Leo Buscaglia

"By the accident of fortune a man may rule the world for a time, but by virtue of love and kindness he may rule the world forever." - Lao-Tse

"The Highest form of goodness is like water - Water knows how to benefit all things without striving with them. It stays in places loathed by all men - Therefore it comes near the Tao." - Tao Te Chin

Hello Richard:

Happy 54th Birthday! I have been your fan since MacGyver and I really admire you for being so clever as MacGyver, funny as Legend and for living an amazing and crazy life as Jack, but most of all I admire Richard a great human being who cares about others and the world where we are living. Thank you for sharing your life with us, for making me laugh, cry and for all the happiness you've brought me over all these years.

God bless you and your family and give you a lot of health, love, happiness and peace through all your life. You are a great actor and I hope to see more from you in the future.

Enjoy your day with your family and friends, and always remember there's a lot of people who care about you all over the world, at least there is someone in Mexico who prays for you every day.

If someday you came to Mexico, please contact me OK.

Dear Doudou,

My English is really bad but I just wanted you wish an excellent birthday and a good year filled of happiness in all the fields. I hope that one day one will be able to have the pleasure to see you in France where you have much of anybody who appreciates you. DOUDOU is your nickname in France that look like a teddy bear.




Hope you have a special birthday filled with lots of celebrating, wishes come true and time with your family and friends.


When they say age is just a number, they had you in mind because you just get better with the years!!

When Jeff Webber left General Hospital in galloped Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. When Seven Brides for Seven Brothers was cancelled, MacGyver taught us how to use ordinary household items to save the world, and NOW Jack O'Neill and Stargate have wormholed into our hearts.

Thanks for all you do to make these characters Interesting and Entertaining!! And a big THANK YOU for an 8th season!


Best Wishes!!


I would like to wish you all the best for this Birthday, for you and Wylie, like I did other times. And thank you for all you bring to people.

A hug,

John Rothe

Happy B'day Richard (and hi to your little one),

I could not believe that I saw a MacGyver today that I'd not seen before. I love each and every one of them. My husband and I enjoy watching both the old Stargates (Monday nights on SciFi) and Of Course the New Stargate's on Fridays. He sets the PVR to record all. It's something we enjoy doing together. Thanks for a clean show that is worth watching. And MacGyver so the kids can watch with us. They always pull for you.



Many things have changed in the world this past year. Personal trials and tribulations have almost overcome my perception of the bigger picture. And when life gets ya down, who is it that I think of? Not MacGyver, no. Not Jack, no. Not even Dr. Jeff Weber, no. I think of Rick Anderson and his joy for living, loving and the passion for the things he believes in. LTS, no? And believe me when I say, thank you... you've made a difference.

Ever yours,

Portland, Oregon

Happy 54th Birthday Richard!

I just wanted to say that I appreciate, admire and respect your work and your talents. I catch rerun episodes of MacGyver whenever I can, and of course, I watch Stargate SG-1 religiously. Thank you for all of your hard work, it means something to me and to all of your fans.

I wish you the very best on your b-day and take care of yourself.

And if you really want to come to Germany - the godfather of my children is from Minnesota (he comes often here) so I have some experience in guiding.

Dear Rick, tonight I dreamed of you. So I had the idea of looking for your Web site. I hope you will read this.

(At Easter I will be in Minnesota, April 8-17, visiting together with my daughter her godfather in St. Paul - you know: MN. )

Hi, I just wanted to wish you the happiest birthday, and you are an incredible man and very interesting. You are great. Someday I wish to see you.

Hey Richard, from a very cold Canadian,

54 years old... don't worry. My mother isn't much of a spring chicken either. ha ha.... and everyone is right. You do get better looking with age. I still have a big crush on you, ever since I saw Stargate. I think you are a wonderful actor, father, and all around person. I just want to tell you, if I never get to tell you in person, that you are my role model. You have been since I started high school, and have motivated me to further my goal of an acting career. I will try to get into a Canadian Arts College after high school. Your character in Stargate was so amazing, and funny. My brother and I haven't stopped laughing yet.

My friends and I were just talking about how you should be a guest on Simpsons. Patty and Selma would go crazy if "MacGyver" showed up to Springfield. It is just an idea we had, and I was passing along the thought. I hope Wylie and Apryl are doing OK. If you ever get around to it, I have been writing a short story. It is sort of like "Starman", but... my version. It has you... well... it is SORT of you... in it. You but as an... alien... I know you would really like it. I haven't exactly finished it yet. I will though. It is my birthday present to you.

Well, like every teenager does, I have trailed off into nothingness. This is only if I never get to meet you. So, back to the more important task at had, your birthday, I hope you have a wonderful birthday, a great new year, and great future years. You are a wonderful, inspirational person. You still have many many years left on you, so keep it up! Blessings to you and your family.


Markham, Ontario, Canada

Happy Birthday and many good wishes for you.

Dear Ritchie!

Yes, you read right! I'm still alive. I wish you a very nice birthday! See you again in the Death Valley!

Your old enemy,


Dear Richard!

I wish you a very nice 54 Birthday! I'm your biggest fan. I have all Stargate Seasons on DVD. Also I watch all films with you! I hope you write back! Thanks! Once more Happy Birthday!

With best regards,



I send you my best desires to your birthday:

A strength-defying health, satisfaction, and luck. That your new projects are connected with much fun, and that you and your beloved people from concerns remain exempted. Hopefully you have the possibility your birthday after your conceptions to arrange (without vocational dates).


Happy Birthday, Rick! Are you still playing hockey? I used to but, not anymore. I don't know many people who want to play hockey with a female, although I can't skate to save my life.

You age gracefully. Age doesn't matter to me. You'll always be young to me. Keep up the great work!

Love Always,
And Forever,

Cher Rick,

Je vous souhaite un très joyeux anniversaire. Que cette journée particulière soit remplie d'amour et de joie pour vous et vos proches. Je vous envoie mes meilleurs pensées de France. Mille baisers. Portez vous bien.

Hi Richard,

I want to wish you a very happy birthday. I just celebrated my birthday on the 19th. I have been watching reruns of MacGyver and taping them if I can't watch them. I also have been watching Stargate and just recently bought them on DVD. Again, have a very nice birthday.

El Paso, TX

Happy birthday to you!
Best wishes,


Dear Richard,

As many before me I'm sending you a birth-wish for much enjoyment in life! You are in the prime of your life, do enjoy it. I enjoy your craft as an actor and the many laughs you give through Jack O'Neill.

I hope you will continue to entertain us for some time to come. I have a question for you about the name of Anderson? Are you a true Anderson or is this a stage name? If Anderson is real might you have very distant relatives that might have migrated to Oregon? My mother was an Anderson and we have family all over the country.

I've just become interested in Sea Shepherd and will be paying a visit to Friday Harbor in September, they are a worthwhile cause.

Best wishes for a Happy Birth-day!

An admirer of your trade,

Dear RD,

It's been a while so I thought I'd get in touch to say Happy Birthday Babe, on Friday!

Love Ya,

Springfield, VA

My mother and brother share a birthday with you and they are and were terrific people. There must be something about that day. Happy, Happy always.

Kat Anderson

Dear Rick, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Just think, you're not just another year older, you're also another year wiser. I've been a BIG fan of yours ever since MacGyver first aired. My son Devin really likes MacGyver. When a situation comes up and I don't know what to do, he always says "Mom, what would MacGyver do?" I have not ever seen Stargate because I don't receive that certain channel, but from what I have read from your fans' letters and greetings, it makes me really wish I did receive that channel. Have a HAPPY and WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY Rick, and give your beautiful daughter a hug and kiss from me. Keep up the good work.

Dear Mr Anderson... Hi Richard,

I wish you happy birthday from Hungary. I was born in 1982.01.22. - and I have Gemini Ascendant too - so my birthday is earlier, but on 23 is my name day: Emese - is a primeval Hungarian-name, our protomother's name. A turul bird (hawk) got her pregnant. It is just a day but if you remember its holiness, that you were born 54 years before... it's a good thing... that you're here!

"The real world exists somewhere, a dream exists in what we are.
And dreams are in your heart.
People's hearts make their future.
New Imagination will change their mind and physical form.
The power of Imagination will make their lives and futures.
Nothing will change if you don't live with your own will.
So, you should pick yourself up when you fall to the bottom of the Earth... even though you can't find the words.
When one can imagine themself with spirit anyone can gain human form.
Don't worry. All life has the ability to recover.
All have the will to live on.
If one wants to live on, a heaven can be anywhere... because we're alive.
The chance to be happy is everywhere... as long as the sun, moon, and Earth exist... we're all safe."

Be happy in my language: Boldog születésnapot!


Dear Rick,

Like fine wine, you just keep getting better with age.

Wishing you a Happy 54th and many returns!

Thank you for sharing your talent with us for so many wonderful years!!!

With Much Love and many blessings from Cape Breton, NS on you and your beautiful daughter, Wylie.

Happy Birthday and Many Happy Returns of the Day!

I always wanted to thank you for the way you treat each show and each episode you make as the work of art that it is. When I have read your interviews you communicate a spirit that encourages me - partly the stoic Swede (I have that heritage too) and partly your great sense of humor and humility. I also have found courage in some of the insights gained from stories you have helped to tell. Thank you. God bless you and yours! Happy Birthday.


Dear Mr. Anderson,

We, the members of the Hungarian Stargate Fanclub would like to wish you a happy birthday! We hope you can spend this day with those you love the most.

All the best,
Your fans from Hungary

Dear Richard Dean,

I want to wish you a very Happy Birthday!!! I love you so much and thank you for all the wonderful entertainment you have provided us! You and your family are always in my prayers. God bless you!!

Happy Birthday Richard!

You may see my name three times on this list, but hey, they say the third time is the charm!

I just wanted to give you an idea about how to end your career on SG-1 in its final season... if you're willing to hear it. Remember the episode "One Hundred Days?" When you left the last scene showed the woman you had been with touching her belly... she was pregnant! In the final episode, you are contacted by the people of that planet to let you know that she and her son died and the child survived. You decide that you will retire permanently to care for the child. I've thought it into deeper details and of course, I have ideas for the others as well, but I thought I would try to get your attention first. What do you think... worth considering? Bra'tac dies and Teal'c returns home, Daniel and Dr. Fraiser hook up, Carter gets promoted to the next rank and takes over your position when you leave, and General Hammond gets offered the position of military advisor to the President! Everyone lives happily ever after... Good luck!

Happy Birthday, Rick. Hope you are blessed many times over with the same pleasure you bring all your fans. Thanx.


I'm not sure if you would remember, but we used to trade hockey cards about twenty years ago or so. I would like to say Happy Birthday and I had never forgotten the kind words you shared with me and thank you for the A plus on my paper for school back then. May this day be a happy and joyous one for you and enjoy it completely. Stay safe Richard and thank you.


Dear Richard, we send you lots of birthday greetings from far away Switzerland. We thank you for all the uncountable hours of enjoyment you brought to us with MacGyver and Stargate and all the other roles you played. We wish you all the very best not only for yourself but also for everything that is important for you. Take care of yourself.

Happy Birthday, Beautiful! I've been trying to convince my daughter to have my grandson today, but it looks as if it won't happen. With this grandson, anyway. It snowed here. I hope your birthday was lovely.

Wanted to say Happy Birthday!! At my house you are known as MacGyver. I have seen every episode again & again, I watch it every day. I'm your biggest fan you have. I know everybody says that but sorry I'm the biggest fan!!!! The world needs more people like you & it would be a much better place to live and raise your kids. Anyway just wanted you to know how much you're cared for. Hope it's the best birthday yet and many many more.
