Everything is bigger in Texas . . . including the stories. Pecos Bill, raised by coyotes and revered by cowpokes and critters alike, never met a challenge he couldn’t conquer. Join us under the wide desert sky in this rootin’-tootin’ tall tale of a bigger-than-life American hero as he gallops across the Wild West taming tornadoes, wild cats, villains and even the heart of a woman as free as a tumbleweed and as tough as the rattlesnake Bill uses for a lasso! Written by Gay H. Hammond. Run time, 55 minutes.
