Cartoon Summary:

A series of spot gags about the Pony Express, spoofing the Express itself, its riders and its horses. There's a "punch line" finale.

Cartoon Production Information:

The elements comprising this cartoon foreshadow many concerns that director Charles M. Jones later refined in his Road Runner series: extreme speed, a painted desert landscape, and repeated falling off cliffs.
