Sgt. Billy and Corp. Sam are sent on a dangerous mission to recover the stolen payroll box intended for Fort Cannon Ball in Bended Bow, Arizona. This six-episode comedy series stars Bill O'Brien, who co-starred for many years with Rex Trailer on the popular children's show Boomtown that enjoyed a 20-year run on WBZ-TV in Boston.
Bill is reunited with another Boomtown alumni, Sam Donato, for this fun and hilarious adventure that travels from Whiskey Flats to Twitty Badlands, and the final showdown at Rio Loco. From the award-winning Colonial Radio Theatre on the Air, The Adventures of Sgt. Billy and Corp. Sam is filled with some great banjo plucking tunes and lots of laughs for the entire family.
For more than 20 years Rex Trailer and his band of good guys entertained New Englanders growing up in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s on the popular kid's show "Boomtown. One side-kick joined the show and stayed on with Rex until the end–Sgt. Billy O'Brien.
This DVD is packed with some of the best comfort food memories a Boomtownie could ask for. It includes the one-hour documentary film, "Rex Trailer's Boomtown," lost and found clips from shows, music videos, behind-the-scenes color footage of the first outdoor "Boomtown" show in 1957, and much more!
