I saw this as a kid (yes, long ago). But, more recently, before Vault Disney was trashed by that network I saw this series again (this time as somewhat of an adult). It was still brilliant as a western series with Tom Tryon very impressive on those horses. What a great rider. Great series, apparently based on real events in the late 1800s. Great action Western, family style, a la Disney of the 60s. But still good enough to be shown today. Where is it, Disney? Please either show these or put them up for sale.
Basically, this series follows Texas John Slaughter through life's tragedies and accomplishments. As his family grows so also does his fame as he becomes a lawman in the Old West near the turn of the century (the 20th, not the 21st).
Great family entertainment even today.
