Orphaned and left in the desert as an infant Evil Roy Slade (John Astin) grew up alone - save for his teddy bear - and mean. As an adult he is notorious for being the meanest villain in the West - so he's thrown for quite a loop when he falls for sweet schoolteacher Betsy Potter (Pamela Austin). There's also Nelson L. Stool (Mickey Rooney) a railroad tycoon who along with his dimwitted nephew Clifford (Henry Gibson) is trying to get revenge on Evil Roy Slade for robbing him.

Made-for-TV comedic Western starring John Astin and Mickey Rooney. Having been abandoned as a young child, Evil Roy Slade (Astin) grows up to become the most notorious villain in the Wild West. However, he finds he has a softer side when he falls in love with schoolteacher Betsy Potter (Pamela Austin). Meanwhile, railway mogul Nelson L. Stool (Rooney), with the help of his nephew Clifford (Henry Gibson) and Marshal Bing Bell (Dick Shawn) tries to bring Slade down.
John Astin plays an outlaw so repulsive that, when he was orphaned and left stranded in the desert as a baby, even the wolves didn't want him! As an adult, Evil Roy Slade can't resist "going the extra mile" in his nastiness: while robbing a bank, he stops to pilfer a fountain pen chained to one of the desks, and the next shot shows Slade riding off into the sunset, dragging the desk behind him. Attempting to reform for the sake of pretty schoolmarm Betsy Potter (Pamela Austin), Slade simply cannot curb his crooked tendencies, so it's up to Dick Shawn as singing Sheriff Bing Bell to bring the criminal to justice.
