U.S. Marshal Hopalong Cassidy is called when a town becomes overrun with bad guys. Disguised as a member of a medicine show, Hoppy discovers that the ringleader is none other than sweet li'l ol' Ma Burton.
Jane Travers asks Hoppy to help protect her next caravan against robbers. Westcott and Martin are out to stop them and have their men dressed as soldiers to escort the caravan. The fake soldiers don't fool Hoppy and he and the Bar 20 boys foil that plan. Martin's men then capture everyone but Hoppy and send them off to the firing squad. Now Hoppy has to find a way to save them singlehandedly. Written by

Nobody's fooling Hopalong Cassidy in Doomed Caravans. Hoppy, Lucky, and California with Andy Clyde in his second appearance in that role are protecting Minna Gombell and her freighting outfit from outlaws Morris Ankrum and Trevor Bardette.
These two guys are outlaws who dream and scheme big. They have nothing less than revolution on their minds as they seek to depose a sitting territorial governor.
And they're a bloodthirsty bunch and superstitious. Ankrum has a troop of cavalry massacred and steals their uniforms to escort and then rob Gombell's supplies. But they're a superstitious lot and think it's bad luck to wear a dead man's footwear. So with their cavalry uniforms they're wearing regular cowboy boots and Hoppy spots that right away.
Nice Hoppy western for his many little Podners, young and old.
