Buffalo Bill Jr. was a Kiddie Western, which was the norm at the time, but ironically, 1955, the year that the show debuted, was the year that the Adult Western began with the premiere of Gunsmoke and The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp. Buffalo Bill Jr, played by Jones, was an orphan who was adopted by Judge Ben Wiley (played by Harry Cheshire). The two lived with Judge Wiley's adopted daughter, Calamity (played by Nancy Gilbert in Wileyville, Texas, a town founded by the judge. Buffalo Bill Jr. had grown to adulthood, and was Wileyville's marshal.

This show lasted for two seasons, and was produced by Gene Autry's Flying A Productions.

In 1964, the series appeared on American Broadcasting Company's saturday morning schedule for one year.
