unlikely hero
4 February 2004 | by crouch-1See all my reviews

I'm sure WB's writers were attempting to create a unique, if unlikely hero. The clean-cut boyish good looks were exactly what they were looking for. There were plenty of tough guys-Paladin, Bronco Lane,Rowdy Yates, etc. There were a couple of clever and slightly cowardly con men: Bart and Bret Maverick. What there was not was a nice, clean-cut kid to stand against evil-until Sugarfoot sauntered onto the scene, that is. The challenge, of course, was for this young kid to defend us from evil once a week for four years. It was the classic "Clark Kent/ Superman" formula except that there were no phone booths in the Old West !
