Set in the American Southwest around 1914, Bearcats was the story of two adventurers who traveled around looking for lucrative, difficult, and dangerous assignments. Their mode of transportation was a fancy Stutz Bearcat.

Rather than charge a fee for taking on an assignment, they requested a blank check from each of their clients. After completing the job, they filled in the amount according to what they felt their services were worth.

In one episode, they were hired to find out who was setting fire to oil wells in a small border town; in another, their job was to stop mercenaries from sabotaging medical supplies being shipped overseas to the Allies during World War I.
