If you're looking for fun, just look in Cowboy Billy's hat! Original skits, songs and cartoons are performed by Bill Dougal and actors, young and old. Tall tales and fun facts are presented through Bill's comic writing and colorful artwork in short, memorable segments for kids aged five to eleven. Catchy, western style tunes with silly lyrics and lovable characters, such as Dusty Dan, Pickleface Pete, and Dr. Possumpants brand this half hour pilot, the first in a series.
Variety is the spice of this kids show. SONGS by Bill Dougal tell messages; "I Walked Away" suggests non-violent conflict resolution. Other songs are just plain fun, like "Bow Wow Cowboy". COMEDY SKITS include kooky characters; Dusty Dan, Deadbeat Nat and Sock Shop Sue. Not to mention Nathan, Cowboy Billy's horse puppet neigh-bor. Young actors interact with wise adults. Dougal's cartoon-style ARTWORK brings the words of his songs, skits, poems and monologues to life. Animated art is combined with live action. CHARACTER VALUES are taught through skits, where western characters grapple with concepts like honesty, fairness and responsibility. EDUCATION regarding art happens as lessons are sprinkled throughout the program. Drawing skills develop as kids are shown how to create things like horses and lassos. Creative thinking is encouraged as Cowboy Billy turns a horseshoe into a bowlegged cowpoke with the stroke of his marker. You'll also see other amazing sights... Wanted posters that talk back, an Armadillotie (combination of an armadillo and a coyote), a rodeo-riding bee, and Nathan, the talking horse.
