17 x 60 minute episodes

The adventures of Fred Kelly (William Bendix) – a crusty superintendent for the Overland Stage Co – and his young sidekick, Flip Flippen (Doug McClure), as they try to keep the stage routes safe.

Flip had been raised by Indians and had a reckless streak in him which the gruff Mr Kelly tried to keep in check.

The show had a short run, lost in the glut of TV westerns.
