Buffalo Bill Jr. Was a Brave, Young Cowboy-Dude
22 September 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Starring ace horse-rider and first-rate stuntman, Dickie Jones, as the gung-ho title character, this happy-go-lucky TV Western from 1955 was always guaranteed to deliver a solid half-hour of good-natured, cowboy-type fun.

Featuring plenty of hard-riding action - This fast-paced show was set in the small, Old West town of Wileyville which was situated smack-dab in the middle of the State of Arizona.

Here in Wileyville, Buffalo Bill Jr. and his much younger sister, Calamity, were kept under the watchful eye of Judge Ben "Fair & Square" Wiley who had adopted these 2 siblings when they were just wee orphans of the West.

Together this dynamic trio of distinctly different, yet completely compatible, characters do whatever they can in order to keep peace in and around the neighboring territory.

Whether it's ornery outlaws, renegade Indians, or just ordinary settlers in dire trouble, you can be well-assured that Buffalo Bill Jr, Calamity, and Judge Wiley will be seeing to it the everything turns out fine and dandy.

This pleasant TV Western was filmed in b&w.

Even though I thought that this program showed a lot of zest and promise in its episodes it only aired for a season and a half.
