The Sagebrush Family Trails West was the first attempt by Producer's Distributing Corporation (later known as PRC Pictures) to create a western series of its own. Heading the cast is Bobby Clark-not the celebrated Broadway comedian, but a trick roper and rider billed as "The 13-Year-Old World's Champion Junior Cowboy". The story concentrates on a travelling medicine show maintained by Clark and his relatives Minerva Urecal, Earle Hodgins and Joyce Bryant. Their progress is impeded when Hodgins is framed on a robbery charge, but Clark uses his fancy lariat to hog-tie the genuine crooks. No series resulted from The Sagebrush Family Trails West, but by the end of the year PRC had established its western manifest with its Tim McCoy and "Billy the Kid" series.
