The Time Warp Trio find themselves in the Wild West, rubbing elbows with cowboys and Indians.


The Old West



  • Fred: Cowboy Bob is going to stop Sitting Bull and his Cheyennes from stampeding his cattle off the old Chillum Trail. Can you believe it?
  • Sam: No, because they've got it all wrong. Number one, Sitting Bull was not a Cheyenne. He was the leader of a Sioux tribe. Number two, the trail from San Antonio to Abilene was called the Chisholm Trail. And number three, Cowboy Bob is just a bad character reinforcing mindless stereotypes.
  • Fred: Well, excuse me, Mr. Information. Thanks for spoiling the movie.
