In the original story on which the pilot episode for this series was based, the hero was simply called Derringer. The first name, "Yancy," was added specifically for the TV series, which was produced by Desilu Studios. See more »
Yancy Derringer was a fun and interesting TV show that I watched when I was growing up.
This was a really a neat and fun TV show to watch. I loved the fact that a Native American was given a decent part in a TV show. X-Brands always seemed so cool and aloof as Pahoo. The writers gave him dignity. It was also a cool concept and interesting that it was set in New Orleans. I enjoyed watching Jock Mahoney in almost anything he ever was in. He always looked so debonair, but capable in this series. I really would hope that this series could be released on DVD. If not on DVD, maybe it could be shown somehow on cable or satellite (TV Land?). The "Range Rider", that he was also in, was a cool show, too. I wouldn't mind seeing that show again, too, either on DVD or TV.
