Will Hutchins gets to spoof his own character on Maverick (1957). After Sugarfoot (1957) had been canceled, Hutchins did a guest spot as a character known only as "Young Lawyer." Near the end of the episode, Beau Maverick asks him, "Are you the one they call Sugarfoot?" Hutchins character responds, "Sugarfoot? Never heard of him." See more »
"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.
