One of the more popular of the many Wild West adventure series targeted at kids to be released during the 50's. This program followed the lonely life of rugged frontiersman Kit Carson and his Mexican friend, El Toro, as they roamed the southwest righting wrongs and bringing outlaws to justice. Written by

Even though The Adventures of Kit Carson (from the 1950s) was a decidedly low-budget production, I found its half-hour episodes, for the most part, to be very entertaining, well-produced and, often-times, quite amusing.
From my point of view, I thought that actor Bill Williams had just the right sort of masculinity and overall ruggedness needed to be convincing and easily likable as the title character, Kit Carson. In fact, I thought that the uncomplicated Williams made for a truly ideal cowboy-dude.
Filmed in b&w, this solid and nicely-paced TV Western ran for 4 successful seasons (1951-1955).
Each episode featured yet another no-nonsense, action-packed yarn concerning the fearless activities of Kit and his Mexican sidekick/buddy, El Toro, played by Don Diamond.
Together these 2 loyal comrades traveled from town to town throughout the vast American Southwest fighting crime and upholding the law, always certain to win high praise and respect from the ever-grateful citizens.
