Here they were, these two Mexican bandits, travelling from sunset to sunset (because that’s where they always road off to at the end of each episode) robbing the rich, but I wouldn’t say giving it to the poor. At least they did it in a kind and humorous way. It was more a question of the victim being relieved of the heavy burden of his or her riches, rather than having some of their prized possessions taken away from them.
Half the fun in the series was listening to Pancho try to explain in his simple Mexican way that the sheriff’s posse was hard on their heels and to quote him, "Ceesco, eef they catch up with us, perhaps they weel keel us."
At the beginning The Cisco Kid was played by Jackson Beck then later Jack Mather took over the role. Whilst Pancho was played first by Louis Sorin then by Harry Lang. When Harry Lang suffered a major heart attack, he asked his good friend Mel Blanc to be his substitute. He did so, but only after insisting that his wages be sent to Lang. Mel Blanc stayed with "The Cisco Kid" for several years, and throughout his friend's convalescence, never took a penny. Harry remembered that till the day he died.
Originally the Announcer was Michael Rye and the Director Jock McGregor and during the days of Jack Mather and Harry Lang the Producer was J. C. Lewis with the series being written by Larry Hays.
