Cowboys of Moo Mesa originally aired September 18th, 1992 on the American Broadcasting Company (ABC), C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa because a Saturday Morning success story from the producers of TMNT. The television show was meant as a booster for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line, with popularity being seen in the high ratings. Why the series was cut was due to a merger between ABC and Disney in 1994. It was rebroadcast on the Disney cable network (Toon Disney) until 2001.
The show suggests that a meteor with radioactive properties hit the mesa, then 'evolved' the living beings there in a cloud coving the area. There is not a lot to go on in terms of the process, but simply that they arrive at the point where they are emulating their human counterparts. They dress, behave, and think for the period of time, yet do not have concrete answers for some finite aspects. Should this occur, they try as best as they can to fill in for missing information with loose data and what they already know.
- Marshal Moo Montana (leader)
- The Dakota Dude/Dakota
- The Cowlarado Kid/Cowlarado
The main three characters were the staple in the series, the comic books, and the toy line. Montana always led the way, Cowlarado was the young gun, and Dakota was reserved. Their goal in the life of the series was to protect the "Code Of the West" (C.O.W.), and to defend the small western town from the two major gangs:the Wild Wild Bullies and the Gila Hooligans. They had some side adventures, things that would further develop their character and give some idea to what the moral of the story was.
Sheriff Terrorbull/The Masked Bull: The Sheriff of Moo Mesa that protects the town, but really is the masked bull who causes the trouble in the town. Some how eludes the heroes with the 'Clark Kent/Superman' trick.
Mayor Oscar Bulloney: mayor of Moo Mesa. Gives children a true to life idea on how a politician works, or at least the part about them bending the rules in their favor.
Hasbro probably had the most fun (and most success) with their super deformed cowboys line. However, it didn't stop with action figures. Figures, playsets, vehicles, inflatables, lunch boxes, underwear, dental hygiene products such as toothbrushes, watches, safety scissors, sunglasses, fruit snacks (do NOT eat), and other various toys were made available and in force for the holiday seasons of 1992 and 1993. Many of which can be found on internet auction sites such as eBay for, well, cheap. The real goldmine for collecting in this field would be finding the VHS tapes that made the series a hit.
"First airing on Saturday, August 12 of 2006, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fast Forward's third episode involved young Cody O'Neill's Robodojo being taken over by a living computer virus. The Robodojo was similar to the Danger Room in Marvel's X-Men, generating holographic settings and characters to interact with. In this third episode, the virus created a wild west setting, which featured several characters and settings from the Wild West C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa television series."
