Wonderful Action Western series
19 May 2015 | by wildwesttoysSee all my reviews

In the early 1950's television was in it's infancy! This series is a wonderful example of hard work, good scripts and solid basic stories of right and wrong! Created to entertain children, shows like this feature the original action heroes the cowboy stars! Bill Williams and Don Diamond are very entertaining in their roles. Good horsemen and very capable with Colt 45 pistols. The horses are also amazing beautiful animals! Even though the outfits for the most part are not historically correct and the adventures of Kit Carson and his sidekick El Toro are purely fictional stories about a real true life adventurer of the old west, this series is top notch and though made for children to watch as long as the viewer keeps that in mind the series can be extremely enjoyable! So as a man who has watched many westerns I can most certainly recommend the episodes of this classic series to all ages.
