The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok was originally a western action radio series
that ran for 271 episodes from April of 1951 through December of 1954 on the
Mutual Broadcasting System. The main cast members were, Guy Madison as
U.S.Marshal James Butler ‘Wild Bill’ Hickok, and Andy Devine as Deputy Marshal
‘Jingles’ P. Jones (pictured above) The show was about a U.S. Marshall and his
300 pound sidekick who brought bad guys to justice in the old west. The first
episode was titled Behind Southern Lines. Unlike most series that made the
transition from radio to TV, The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok kept the
same cast as the radio show.
