Storyline

James West and Artemus Gordon are two agents of President Grant who take their splendidly appointed private train through the west to fight evil. Half science fiction and half western, Artemus designs a series of interesting gadgets for James that would make Inspector Gadget proud. A lighthearted adventure series.

Trivia

Television shows of the era that filmed at the same studios often shared minor cast members. It is common to see familiar faces in episodes of this show, Star Trek (1966), Batman (1966), Get Smart (1965) Mission: Impossible (1966), Lost in Space (1965) and The Time Tunnel (1966). Many of these people had previously appeared on The Twilight Zone (1959), which had just ended in 1964. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the series various characters mispronounce "cavalry" as "calvary", confusing a pair of near-homonyms with Latin origins. Cavalry means soldiers on horseback. Calvary means an object shaped like a skull. The most (in)famous "place of the skull" (Calvariae Locus in Latin) was a Jerusalem landmark where Jesus Christ and various convicts were crucified during Roman Empire times. See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening credits as originally designed for the pilot (and included on the season 1 DVD) show the animated cowboy knocking down the woman trying to stab him. In the first season as aired, the cowboy kisses the woman, who dreamily turns away instead of trying to stab him. Later episodes reinstated the cowboy knocking the woman down. See more »

The Night Of The Show That Rocked The House.
23 June 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

They say time can play tricks, but I would bet that if some cable channel started to show "The Wild Wild West" again it would work its magic on me the same way it did when I watched it as a youngster in Barbados in the 1980s. Just the animated opening titles were spellbinding; this may sound weird, but I always thought it was a plus when the last panel to be filled in was one of the lower two (especially the one with the lady on the ground). It had action, it had mystery, it had everything.

It also had a theme tune that was a helluva lot better than anything in that dispiriting 1999 movie (if Warner Bros thought no one would remember it, they were wrong). Robert Conrad, Ross Martin (RIP), and creator Michael Garrison, we salute you.
