Hickok rode Buckshot and 300-pound Jingles rode Joker. Jingles described Hickok as "the bravest, Strongest, fightingest U.S. Marshal in the whole West." And that's about it: he beat up all the bad guys and somehow kept his good looks.

Hey, Bill, Wait For Me!
13 February 2006 | by (Van Buren, Arkansas) – See all my reviews

Having almost nothing to do with the historical Wild Bill Hickok except for the name, this Guy Madison, Andy Divine series did have a lot of action, adventure, and comedy. As I recall the show began with Wild Bill riding his horse, Buckshot, in fast gallop while shooting his pistol at the camera. Way in back rode Andy Divide on his trusty steed, Joker, holding his hat and yelling in his gravel voice, "Hey, Bill, Wait for Me!"

Guy Madison had starred in a few feature length western films, most of them average at best. (I remember seeing one of his westerns in 3-D with arrows loosed into the audience). Though a rather handsome guy (no pun intended), his screen personality was somewhat bland. We buckaroos tuned in more to see Jingles than Wild Bill for Andy Divide was a funny sidekick, both in appearance and in high jinks. Wild Bill wasn't a fellow to mess with so there was plenty of hard riding along with straight shooting for kids of all ages to enjoy.
