Get to know Cheyenne
Cheyenne was the first hour-long western broadcast on television, full of fist fights, fast gunplay, lots of cattle drives, dangerous gunslingers, daring cowboys, mysterious indians, and romance. One of the highest-rated shows of its era, ABC broadcast 108 episodes of Cheyenne from 1955 to 1963 in black and white. The main character was memorably portrayed on the small screen by 6-foot, 6-inch-tall Clint Walker, a newcomer to Hollywood.
Each episode followed the adventures of loner Cheyenne Bodie as he wandered through the lives of characters and communities in post-Civil War America.
Skilled in ways of frontier life thanks to his upbringing among the Cheyenne indians, master of the quick draw, physically impressive and morally grounded, Cheyenne Bodie was a western hero molded into the varying storylines and situations in each stand-alone episode.
