While the audience watches a black and white horse opera, a narrator's voice wonders what such a movie would be like today. Rex O'Herlihan, The Singing Cowboy, finds himself in color and enters a cliché-ridden town, in which the evil cattle baron (Andy Griffith) and the new Italian cowboys (who always wear raincoats no matter how hot it gets) join forces to get him and the sheep ranchers to leave the valley.

The outfit that Peter (G.W. Bailey
) wears is an homage to Smiley Burnette
who was the "sidekick" for Roy Rogers
, Gene Autry
and Charles Starrett
in most of the western movies made in the 1940s and 1950s. He always wore a checked shirt and a black hat with the brim turned up in front. He also rode a white horse with a black ring around one eye. See more
