Questions You've Never Asked: Did Quick Draw McGraw Ever Ride a Horse?
Indeed, he might have been the only western star in the entire history of entertainment who never rode (or even interacted with) a horse… a tiny midget horse he was once assigned to capture for a circus (“Bronco Busting Boobs”), notwithstanding.
Sure, he drove a stagecoach in his opening and closing show credits but he was never ON a horse itself. He usually walked into town, or drove a jeep (!), and once he even rode an elephant!
Tsk! Tsk! What would Marshall Matt Dillon think!
Probably for the same reason Goofy didn’t walk Pluto on a leash, I guess…
Cartoons… who can figure ‘em!
