Fun in the old West as per "Classics Comics".
24 January 2000 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This happy romp in the old west is narrated and fun. Not so much a shoot 'em up movie but a story with compassion and believability. Between old cowboys caring for pigs and babies, you basically never know what will happen next in this story. Great family entertainment and a great intro to "westerns" for the people who usually won't give them the time it takes to watch them!
