Wooster and his buffalo
3 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode centers on Charlie Wooster the cook who doctors a shot buffalo and then adopts it as a pet. He even gives it the name of Clyde and frankly the animal does have a Clyde look to it.

Now as we know in the history of the west the buffalo got pretty well exterminated by hunters and the animal was an integral part of the economy of the plains Indian. Adopting it as a pet stirs up a lot of people not the least of them Frank DeKova who plays an Arapahoe chief and a good deal more fierce than Chief Wild Eagle of F. Troop.

One thing the episode didn't address was that buffalo were not exactly the most housebroken of animals. I wonder if John McIntire put Frank McGrath on special cleanup detail.

It's one of the goofier episodes of the Wagon Train series, but you have to admire McGrath for sticking up for his friend Clyde against everybody.
