The classic Western series spins lots of adventurous tales, full of danger, shootouts, and fistfights. But these perilous moments are offset by Pat Brady's goofiness, often underscored by the use of his jeep, Nelleybelle, which seems to have a mind of its own. Rogers and Evans' signature "Happy Trails" send-off also adds some charm.

The show reflects the era's struggle to hold on to the traditional ways of the old West amidst on the rapid modernization of post-World War II America. In fact, Roger and Evans' seem stuck in an odd time warp, given that they're surrounded by electric conveniences, shiny Cadillacs, and the occasional mobster. But it's the cowboys' old-timer ways that always saves the day, and what makes the show fun and entertaining.
