From 1993 to 1997, Cash made four guest appearances, three of which he was alongside June Carter-Cash, on the western show Dr. Quin, Medicine Woman. Other notable appearances include his role as Davy Crockett in Disney's Rainbow in the Thunder, Chief John Ross in Trail of Tears, and John Brown in North and South.
