The Cisco Kid
was a juvenile western adventure. In many ways it was the radio show equivalent to the western B-movies of the time, complete with what sound distinctly like coconuts for horses hooves and wonderfully cheesy Mexican accents – “Oh, Ceesco, perhaps they will keel heem”
The show follows the on-going adventures of the Cisco Kid and Pancho, his loyal companion. Many of the stories follow a predictable theme, usually involve a good fight, and end up with Cisco getting the girl, or at least a kiss for his troubles.
