Correspondence-school law graduate Tom Brewster travels west to seek his fortune. Unfortunately, his "cowboy" abilities leave a lot to be desired and earn him the nickname "Sugarfoot" which is one step lower than a "Tenderfoot." Written by
"Sugarfoot" was one of 4 westerns that shared a time slot on the same night. The other shows were "Maverick", "Cheyenne",and "Bronco Lane". So you only got to see each of them once a month. Each had it's own song, and unfortunately, I remember them. They were all different but strangely alike. Sugarfoot was a blond,blue-eyed young man who really went against the "cowboy/hero" type. He was an "aw shucks," type and didn't use his gun as much as other western heroes. Maverick was a smooth talking gambler and was usually funny. Bronco Lane was from Texas and as far as I remember, was his best attribute. Cheyenne was an absolute hunk with broad shoulders, really big chest, and a small waist. Each one of them seemed to just roam around, getting into trouble, rescuing people, and solving crimes. Boy, could we use them nowadays.
