Cartoon Production Information:

First appeared on The Captain Kangaroo Show beginning in December, 1961. After three years on Captain Kangaroo, the thirteen Lariat Sam stories (each consisting of three 5-minute chapters) went into syndication, where the rope-slinging cowboy continued to delight young audiences with his quick hands and honest heart.

The Adventures of Lariat Sam starred an idealistic cowboy who traveled the west with his horse Tippytoes. Sam always managed to see the good in people, so much so that he refused to carry a gun, using only his trusty lariat to defend those in need. The derby-wearing Tippytoes was a kindred spirit, a "Wonder Horse" with a fondness for poetry. Together, the friendly duo kept the Old West safe from outlaws like Badlands Meeny, who was just as rotten as his name.

Producer, creator, writer and theme song singer Gene Wood would go on to be the announcer on many game shows, primarily Mark Goodson–Bill Todman productions such as Family Feud, Card Sharks, Password, and Beat the Clock.

His song:

Yippy-yi-yippy-yo, yippy-yippy-yi-yay,
His name is Lariat Sam,
Yippy-yi-yippy-yo, yippy-yippy-yi-yay,
In the West he's the best that am

Brave and bold with a heart of gold,
His name is Lariat Sam,
Strong for the right, for the right he'll fight,
His name is Lariat Sam,

With his lariat, you can always bet,
Sam will win the day, with is lasso,
Twenty-three skidoo,
Sam will chase every villain away...

Alternate Version:

Yippie-i, Yippie-o, Yippie Yippie Ti Ay,
His Name Is Lariat Sam,
Yippie-i, Yippie-o, Yippie, Yippie ti- ay,
In The West, He's The Best That Am.

With his lariat, you can always bet,
Sam will win the day.
With his lasso, the tricks he'll do,
guaranteed to chase every villain away.

Brave and bold, with a heart of gold,
his name is Lariat Sam,
Strong for the right, for the right he'll fight,
his name is Lariat Sam... Yippie-o!!!

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
