The Adventures of Kit Carson
Synopsis of Saturday Morning Show
Each week, more than 3 million households tuned in to follow the adventures of scout Christopher "Kit" Carson and his Mexican sidekick, El Toro, making The Adventures of Kit Carson the number one series among children in 1954.
The title character was played by Bill Williams, who was a former swimmer before making a splash with this series.
The Adventures of Kit Carson was able to avoid the expensive production fees of many of the other Western shows by filming at Republic Studios, a facility known for its skill with the low-budget "bargain-basement" technique. The cost-cutting measures did nothing to dampen the show's Western thrills, which kept popgun-toting cowboy wannabes coming back for more.
