Sugarfoot

1957 | United States

Western series starring Will Hutchins that had its roots as a one-off story in an anthology series called Conflict shown between September 1956 and September 1957 on ABC television and one that itself rotated on alternate weeks with Cheyenne

As Western's go this one was a little different in as much as the hero, Tom Brewster, preferred to talk himself rather than shoot himself out of trouble and shunned away from any form of physical violence. 

The series was devised for Hutchins after the young actor was put under contract to Warner Bros. and ran on an alternate week basis with Cheyenne (after Conflict was cancelled) from 1957-1959, with Bronco from 1959-1960 and finally became one of three rotating shows for its last season (1960-61). Conflict spawned one other successful series, 77 Sunset Strip.
