  • the best I've seen of this series.

    This is actually my favorite episode of Dusty's Trail to date. Here Dusty rescues an Indian boy from a bear. It turns out this boy is a chief of a war-like tribe and puts the Wagoneers in jeopardy. Nothing says Western like Cowboys and Indians and this episode has some good sequenses with a local tribe the Hackimaws Certain elements of this episode do remind me of F-Troop which also featured Forrest Tucker. This is mainly noticeable during the scenes with the Indians. Another funny sequence is the "battle" between Dusty and a Hackimaw brave for Betsy's hand in marriage. Bob Denver's comabt technique is so hilarious that it's easy to see how he was such a ,master of slap-stick.
