Buffalo Bill, Jr. and comedian George Ovey played the title roles in this typical low-budget Western produced by Action Pictures. The two friends are arrested for fighting the town bully (Edward Hearn) but the sheriff (Robert Homans) agrees to drop the charges if they go to work for their "victim's" boss, Luther Fox (Bert Lindley). They agree, but quickly discovers that Fox has framed Pete Bassett in a rustling scheme in order to take over the Bassett land. Along with Pete's parents (Harry Belmour and Raye Hampton) and sister Mary (Olive Hasbrouck), the two pals manage to bring both Fox and the crooked sheriff to justice. A former star of "Cub" comedies in the mid 1910s, Ovey is perhaps best remembered for playing the Plum Pudding in Alice in Wonderland (1933).
