The Wild Wild West TV show was a 60 minute western action series on CBS that was like no other. Special Agents James West and Artemus Gordon were spys for President Ulysses S. Grant shortly after the civil war. In every other way, they could be easily confused with James Bond of the 20th century. They had a "high-tech" railroad car stocked with a compliment of advanced weapons.
The Wild Wild West is an American television series that ran on CBS for four seasons (104 episodes) from September 17, 1965 to April 4, 1969. Developed at a time when the television western was losing ground to the spy genre, this show was conceived by its creator, Michael Garrison, as "James Bond on horseback." Two television movies were made with the original cast in 1979 and 1980, and the series was adapted for a motion picture in 1999.
