Johnny Yuma was an ex-Confederate soldier whose adventures on the Western Frontier following the end of the Civil War were the basis of the stories in this TV series.
Johnny was the only regular cast member of the show. He traveled from town to town, getting involved with people and acting as an unofficial arbiter of justice. Not only did he get involved in criminal issues, but moral ones as well.
In the summer of 1962, NBC aired reruns of episodes that had previously been seen on ABC.
