Question: When I was growing up in the '50s there were several cliffhanger serials. One in particular was a Western about Kit Carson. Would you know its name? — Louis, New York, NY

Televisionary: That I would, Louis. The creators went out on a limb and named their syndicated kiddie hit The Adventures of Kit Carson.

The half-hour show featured Bill Williams as the scouting Kit and Don Diamond as his Mexican pal El Toro. A robust slate of 104 episodes was produced from 1951-55.
