WARNER WESTERNS—SUGARFOOT

WARNER WESTERNS
SUGARFOOT
Another TV western from the Warner Bros. stables, Sugarfoot starred Will Hutchins as easterner gone west Tom Brewster, nicknamed Sugarfoot for his apparent total lack of cowboy skills—Sugarfoot being a designation even below that of a tenderfoot.
 
Writer/producer Hugh Benson created the character of Sugarfoot as a gentle itinerant cowpuncher who was also a law school correspondence student determined to become an attorney someday. Some of his adventures had a comedic flair while others were deadly serious.
 
Like many of his contemporaries, Sugarfoot had a run of Dell comics and a series of U.K. Annuals, which ran under the title, Tenderfoot, which was what  the program was called in Britain.
