The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok starred Guy Madison as the legendary Old West lawman (in real life, also a gunfighter) United States Marshal James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok, and Andy Devine as his comedy sidekick, Jingles P. Jones. The series was set in the 1870s, with Hickok and Jones based at Fort Larabee.[4]


The series was produced by William F. Broidy Productions. It consisted of 113 episodes, the last 13 of which were made in color.[5] In 1957 Screen Gems bought the Broidy company's assets, which included 100 Hickok episodes on film.[6] Tommy Carr was the director. Kellogg's cereals sponsored it.[5]
