In the 1800's, a mysterious comet hits the U.S. southwest, transforming the local cattle and animals into their own version of the old west called Moo Mesa, complete with several lawmen dealing with bizarre outlaws. The series focuses on trying to keep justice in the frontier territory. The lawbreakers were too much for the corrupt regulators of Cowtown - Mayor Bulloney and Sheriff Terrorbull - to handle by themselves. Helping them out, whether they wanted it or not, were a group of peacekeepers known as C.O.W. Boys, short for "Code of the West." Led by bull Marshal Moo Montana, the C.O.W. Boys also included the Dakota Dude and the Cowlorado Kid. The muscle-bound Marshal and his deputies had their hands full with various ruffians and outlaw gangs that plagued the otherwise peaceful town.
The series has been released on DVD.
Lyrics: Comet raised a mesa to the western skies With the sound of a thousand cattle drives A chosen few would see the light And fight the wrong with right
Up on the mesa High above the clouds There's a world apart from all the rest On Moo Mesa Live the real cowboys Standing up for law and order And livin' by the code of the west
Cleanin' up the territory Keepin' evil on its toes Takes a different breed of riding, roping, brave heroes
On moo mesa Live the real cowboys Standin' up for law and order And livin' by the code of the west On Moo mesa!
