Will Hutchins is a kindhearted drifter with a thirst for adventure and sarsaparilla soda in this offbeat Western series, one of the first produced for television by Warner Bros. A fledgling frontier lawyer with a hankering for justice, Tom Brewster (Hutchins) ambles across the West, helping anyone in trouble he finds on the way. Based on The Boy from Oklahoma (1954), an easygoing Western starring Will Rogers Jr., Sugarfoot debuted on ABC-TV on September 17, 1957, where it alternated every other week with Cheyenne. Beginning with a pilot costarring Slim Pickens, Sheb Wooley and Dennis Hopper as Billy the Kid, Sugarfoot: The Complete First Season features 20 episodes plus a passel of guest stars who came to fame in the Western genre, including Bob Steele, Guinn "Big Boy" Williams, Don "Red" Barry, Paul Fix, Dan Blocker, Pernell Roberts, James Garner, Charles Bronson and more!
Here's an interesting situation! The Warner Archives-created DVD release of Sugarfoot - The Complete 1st Season
is now available on Amazon.com, via the big e-tailer's CreateSpace manufacture on demand (MOD) program. However, this title is NOT yet available from Warner's own online store, WBshop.com, which is usually the case prior to any Amazon availability from the Archive. We're not sure exactly how that happened, but Amazon's listing (see button link below) shows that it's been selling since last Tuesday, May 14th
! Cost shown there for this 5-disc set is $47.99 SRP, and they are currently selling it at a discount. Moreover, fans from anywhere in the world who have access to play North American DVDs should be able to buy this from Amazon and have it shipped straight to them (as far as we know, in any case). Our thanks to one of our readers, "Matt," for sending us a note over the weekend to let us know. Here's the cover art:
