Should be set in the 1860s but some clothes rather look like the 1970s. Starring Jeff East and Kim Richards as kids.
I don’t know the complete movie, yet. There’s also an (unrelated ?) 1949 movie (also colorized available) called “The Big Cat” which is much more western like but set in 1933, but I haven’t found kids in there.
Rating 3-4 for now. Novel by Lew Dietz (A Seal called Andre).

Obviously showing ep 18 (s2e11, 1970) which was about the Wild West.
During research for my other blogs, I stumbled upon this show, I never heard of. The 1st show featuring kids. There is even a DVD but only 3 complete episodes survived along some other fragments.

Great movie, also on my Bedroom blog, rating 10.
I don’t remember all scenes. But I assume rather few Western scenes. He also wore shorts and dental braces.
So rating 5 for these clothes. Movie rating much higher.

I have checked this long time ago and don’t remember much of it.
There should be a school, maybe there are more younger actors?
Rating 6 for now.
I have 3 more Westerns starring Dickie Jones, rating up to 5. Please do a blog search.
