Western stories and legends based, and filmed, in and around Death Valley, California. One of the longest-running Western series, originating on radio in the 1930s. The continuing sponsor was "20 Mule Team" Borax, a product formerly mined in Death Valley.
It is the 1870s in the Wyoming Territory. Slim Sherman and his fourteen-year-old brother Andy try to hang on to their ranch after their father was shot by a land grabber. They augment their slight cattle ranch income by serving as a stagecoach station near Laramie.Written by

The exterior sets of the old western town of Laramie in this series were not on the Warner Brothers backlot. They were filmed on the Universal Studios Western Street, as Revue Studios was located at Universal International Studios. Warner Brothers' Laramie Street was used in Lawman (1958) (also set in Laramie, WY), and for many years afterwards, it was also used in countless Warner Brothers movies and television projects since the end of this show. It had also been continuously rented out for filming to several non-Warner Brothers productions, such as Little House on the Prairie (1974), amongst others. Known throughout the studio as "Laramie Street", it consisted of three streets of old western buildings, and it was the last of two separate western sets to remain standing on the Warner Brothers lot. Another western street, which existed in the central portion of the studio's backlot, was demolished in the mid 1980s. Laramie Street remained in existence until 2000, when it was demolished to make way for a collection of modern-day exterior set houses. See more »
I can remember quite clearly the opening of "Laramie" where the characters Slim and Jesse are seem galloping across the plains of Wyoming. Even all these years later the scene, backed by the inspiring music, makes me feel happy. Slim and Jesse operate a stagecoach depot on the route between Denver and Laramie. I did like the characters of Jonesy and Andy as well. Jonesy added some comic relief to the brutality of the old west. I think Slim and Jesse had perfect chemistry as partners. I did enjoy the episodes that featured them both rather than the ones where they rode alone as solos. I try to watch "Laramie" every day when I get home from work.
