Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Wild Bill Hickock"
The Gold Maker (Aired November 19, 1950)

Guy Madison starred as Bill with Andy Devine as his sidekick, Jingles. (Now there’s a name you want to go through Hollywood with.) This Wild Bill Hickock was quick with his fists and a quip, but Jingles (dear god that nickname) got all his glory by using his immense girth to fight the bad guys. Jingles if you couldn’t tell was the comedic element in the series. And what is it with overweight sidekicks in westerns? See Cisco Kid’s partner, the jolly and rotund Pancho. The radio program lasted until 1954. The television show was started at the same time in 1951 and lasted until 1958.
