This show was originally broadcast on Wednesday night from 7:30 to 9:00 EST during the 1967-68 season. It lasted only one season due to it competition. On ABC it went up against Batman, The Flying Nun, and Bewitched; on NBC, Daniel Boone and Ironside. In the 1960's and 70's it was a common practice for the networks to rebroadcast old programs during the summer rerun season, even if the show had been off the air for years. Such was the case for this show, which was shown by CBS during the summer of 1971, three years after it had been canceled. See more »
I still remember the almost mystical episode where a mysterious something was killing folk just outside the perimeter of the town, leaving their bodies so mutilated that no-one could identify whether death was caused by man or beast. Cimarron Strip was like a western version of the Twilight Zone, instead of being the cartoon town which every other show had the Strip was its own place, far removed physically from the rest of the west and far removed in philosophy and execution from the rest of western TV shows. You never knew what complex psychological problem would come riding into town each week. Marshall Jim Crown stalked the Strip like a six-gunned God and town maiden Dulcie was the fairest of the fair. In TV Heaven, they show this every day. They should - there's never been another western like it.
