Just like in Roy Rogers movies the series shows featured cowboys and cowgirls but worked in modern day things like cars, trucks, buses, boats, telephones, and electric lights . The stars would rescue the weak and helpless from dishonest lawmen, outlaws, claim jumpers, rustlers, and others. The show was aimed at the children audience market. There were Cap gun and holster sets, comic books, play sets, western costumes, Cowboy Hats, Cowboy Boots, toys, bikes, lunch boxes, windup toys, bow and arrow sets and other endorsement items for kids to buy .
