  • A little cliche-ridden, but with a good story and a good sense of humor.

    Tom "Sugarfoot" Brewster goes undercover to pose as his villainous cousin, the Canary Kid.



    I tend to like the Warner Bros. television Westerns from the 50s and 60s, they don't have in-depth characterizations but they have good action, plots with a little more action and intrigue, and a nice sense of humor.



    This episode of "Sugarfoot" really doesn't deal with Brewster's lawyerly traits, and instead puts him straight into the action as the false head of a gang of outlaws and cattle rustlers. Of course, he has to convince the gang he is genuine, outlast cutthroat colleagues, and survive the inevitable return of the "real Canary Kid, but along the way he convinces a beautiful (and shoeless) woman to go straight and outwits his own gang's questions after his doppelganger shows up. My major criticism of this episode is that Colt and the Army find the gang without ever needing Sugarfoot to go undercover at all.



    Among the light-hearted moments is the usual good performance of "Red" Barry, one of the great TV and movie Western character actors of all time.moreless
