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.

GREAT stuff
27 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this show when I was a kid. I think it was "Sugar Pops" that was a sponsor. Oh, the power of advertising. I just HAD to have that ceral. I used to have my mom look for the type of buckskin jacket that Wild Bill Hickock used to wear so I could play as if I were riding a horse and shooting at the bad guys while the fringe on the jacket would fly through the air. If I remember correctly, it was on fairly early in the morning. I remembered laughing my head off at Andy Devine. I thought he was so funny. I used to make believe I was Wild Bill Hickock riding my horse while Andy was yelling; "Hey, wait for me Bill." Mark Holub
