In four exciting, action-packed adventures, Buffalo Bill, Jr., his feisty kid sister, Calamity, and their adoptive jack-of-all-trades father, Judge "Fair 'N' Square" Wiley, bring justice to the town of Wileyville, Texas in the late 1880s. Produced by Louis Gray and Gene Autry's Flying A Productions, "Buffalo Bill, Jr." ran on NBC TV from 1955-56, loosely mixing historical characters with rip-roaring western exploits. Star Dick Jones did his own spectacular stunts, from good old-fashioned fist fights to trick riding, usually on the first take, lending an air of authenticity to the breathless action!

As a production of Gene Autry's Flying A banner, created by Louis Gray, the western series BUFFALO BILL, JR. originally ran on NBC from 1955-56. Set in 1880s Wileyville, Texas, it starred Dick Jones and Nancy Gilbert as Buffalo Bill and Calamity, the children of a local judge, who spent episodes engaging in various adventures. Among other elements, the program was noteworthy for combining real-life historical figures and events with fictional characters. This box set offers four original episodes from the program: SIX GUN SYMPHONY, where a boy attempts to hide his fugitive father; DEVIL'S WASHBOWL, where a group of con men attempt to swindle the local townspeople out of their life savings, FUGITIVE FROM INJUSTICE, where Buffalo aids Pepito, a young Mexican boy being pursued by horse thieves, and ROUGH-SHOT, where a fast-draw frontier artist attempts to con a wealthy art connoisseur into buying a fake Frederic Remington painting.
