Description by OLDIES.com:
Legendary western hero Kit Carson and his dependable side-kick, El Toro, ride from one dangerous situation to the next, always fighting for truth and justice. Bill Williams, who had a long film and TV career in westerns, crime dramas and science fiction, plays the upright scout Carson with rugged believability. The role of Kit's girl-crazy Mexican pal is humorously handled by Don Diamond, who later played Cpl. Reyes in the "Zorro" series (1957-1959) and Crazy Cat in "F Troop" (1965) before lending his voice to a series of animated cartoon characters. "The Adventures of Kit Carson" is an early rough-riding treasure from the golden age of TV westerns that brought iconic shows like "The Lone Ranger," "The Cisco Kid," "Roy Rogers" and "Wild Bill Hickok" to small screens across America.
Claim Jumpers: A crooked assayer hires claim jumpers to shoot an old gold prospector in an effort to drive him from his "million dollar" vein.
Outlaw Paradise: An outlaw disguised as Kit murders a judge who once sent him to prison, and the real Kit Carson is wrongly accused of the killing.
Fury at Red Gulch: A newspaper editor's anti-gambling crusade turns deadly when a sheriff is murdered and the editor is framed for the crime.
Danger Hill: A gold strike in the local schoolyard leads to a violent standoff between a young schoolmarm and a gang of greedy townsfolk.
First airing on American television in the early 1950s, the western series THE ADVENTURES OF KIT CARSON followed the thrilling adventures of Kit Carson and his Mexican partner El Toro in their pursuit of justice and women. Bill Williams plays Kit Carson, while Don Diamond plays his goofy pal. During its run, the series fell into the same category as other TV westerns such as "Roy Rogers," "The Cisco Kid," and "The Lone Ranger." This Volume contains four episodes from the show: "Claim Jumpers," "Outlaw Paradise," "Fury at Red Gulch," and "Danger Hill." In these episodes, Carson and El Toro must defend innocent people against outlaws, greedy townspeople, and murderers in disguise.
