Childhood Memory
26 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

The 104 half-hour episodes of the television western "The Adventures of Kit Carson" were originally broadcast in local syndication during the 1951-55 television seasons. Of course it played for years after on Saturday mornings.

The series fell into the "Kiddie" western category with shows like: "The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok", "The Lone Ranger", "Rin Tin Tin", and "Sgt. Preston of the Yukon". The DVD release contains ten episodes of the series.

Blond, rugged, All-American action film hero ("Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo") Bill Williams played the title character. Don Diamond played Kit's ethnic sidekick El Toro. Diamond is probably best remembered as Corporal Reyes on Disney's "Zorro" series although he would go on to play "Crazy Cat" on "F-Troop".

The series was pretty straight forward, with few surprises, no shades of gray. Like "The Cisco Kid", the series served as an unlikely showcase for some of Hollywood's most attractive starlets. While none of these girls seem to have made it big, no other westerns of the period managed nearly this attractive a group of distaff guest stars.
