SYNOPSIS

This children's program was built around Western feature movies, which were shown in segments on succeeding days. Cactus Jim, a "range-riding old-timer", introduced each episode and spun a few yarns. The program emanated from WNBQ, Chicago. It later turned up on NBC's Saturday morning lineup for a brief run from January to March 1952.
