Storyline

Quick as a viper and as overwhelming as a buffalo stampede, Calamity Jane is a hero like no other the west has ever seen. Boldly, she defies the stereotyped female role of her time and place as she fights the various villains and plots she encounters whether it be whip or gun. With the help of her partner, Joe Presto and occasional aid from her boy friend, Wild Bill Hickok, she has all she needs to take on all comers. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

I liked this show, but...
8 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was really looking forward to seeing this program when it first came out, if for no other reason than to see a female action hero in a genre which has so very few of them. The animation, by Warner Brothers, is as good as one would expect, and the voice acting is above average, but I really was disappointed by how the character of Jane was handled. First of all, she uses a bull-whip instead of a gun, apparently since American animators have a problem depicting female characters using deadly weapons. Never mind the fact that going into a gunfight armed with a whip would only get her killed. I mean, the real Jane used a Winchester. Also, the animators further dilute Jane's believability by making her just too strong. She should win fights (after all, she IS the heroine) but having her KOing baddies and sending them flying across a room with a single punch all the while without ever taking a punch herself is just too much of a stretch. But then again, animators in the US seem to have a hard time realistically depicting a female fighter who has neither magic nor superpowers to fall back upon. Depicting Jane as an almost-superhero tends to diminish the real legend.
