Guy Madison and Andy Devine bring you another rootin’ tootin’ western adventure. Wild Bill Hickock and his big sidekick ride into Chocktaw territory. Though Bill tries to assure Jingles that there isn’t so much to fear from indians, the sidekick feels uneasy, and that eyes are watching him.
Suddenly, indian drums sound, and a war party rides by on a buffalo hunt. After Bill and Jingles come out of hiding, a couple of hardcases claiming to be the sheriff of Dragoon apprehend our heros. The sheriff they were to meet has been gunned down, and they are being blamed for it.
Commercial time. Take a break and dive into that tasty treat with the sweetening already on them.
Now in Dragoon, and tossed into jail, Jingles demands to know how the sheriff was killed. When Wild Bill is identified, the sheriff agrees to let them out if they leave town. It all sounds fishy to me.
Back in indian territory, Jingles is nervous over the nearby indian drums. An old timer named Goofy approaches camp. He’s a miner on his way to King City, and Bill and Jingles go along with him. Has Bill and Jingles been too trusting? Is this a trap? Their horses have disappeared, but they meet a young lady who tells the story of the ghost town they are in. She even tells that the sheriff Bil is looking for, has been there recently. The goofy miner is her dad, and he shows Bill and Jingles the mine. They find a mysterious light, and bags full of money. Then a secret cave passage leads to a hidden valley, and the hardcases they ran across earlier.
It doesn’t take them long to get caught, but what happened to the Goofy miner? Bil and Jingles also find themselves held captive along with the sheriff they came to visit. Sheriff Rod tells how his deputy took over, and how the deputy and his gang have been robbing stage coaches, and rustling cattle.
Commercial time. Eat those yummie treats right out of the box for a tasty sweet treat, or as a breakfast cereal with milk. You know why. Because kids love pops, moms love pops, and pops love pops.
Held captive, with the hardcases out looking for a rope, Jingles notices the floor moving. It’s Goofy the miner, entering through a secret passage. Always with a stick of dynamite, Bill borrows one from Goofy, and barges in on the hardcases to turn the tables on them. Was his dynamite play just a bluff? What does it matter as long as the bad guys get caught. Bill and Jingles say their goodbyes to Goofy and his daughter.
