The real Old West was nothing like TheThemeParkVersion (which was originally the creation of 19th-century "dime novels"). There weren't any huge shootouts, quickdraw duels were rare, and gun duels and violent gun-wielding criminals weren't exclusive to desert-like "western" areas. Plus, since many guns were very inaccurate in those days, they sometimes tended to happen in significantly closer quarters than they do in fiction. The average Western town had 1.5 murders per year, and most of those weren't done with guns (due to the West having a relatively small population compared to the East). Carrying guns in these towns was more likely to get you arrested than shot, and you were much more likely to die from diseases like cholera, dysentery, and tuberculosis, or in an accident like being dragged by your own horse, than to be killed in a raging gunfight or get scalped by Indians. Although by means, it was still a lawless and violent era, with three major 19th-century American wars taking place in the frontier (the Mexican-American war, the Civil War and the American Indian Wars) and also other range wars, bandit attacks and feuds. Not to mention that courts were almost non-existent, so settlers substituted with vigilance committees, which were more focused on lynching people than doing any law practices. But overall, the Wild West was not so wild--it was actually more simple and boring, in fact.

** Although, interestingly, not in the movie. It's apparently set in the Wild South, unless Jonah's horse is extraordinarily fast--he travels from the Old-West-style town he's in to the villain's lair in about a day. The villain's lair is an old Confederate fort, on the Atlantic coast.

* ''TazInEscapeFromMars'' has Mexico, which serves as the fourth world, and the first one that deviates from the game's SpaceZone theme. The first act has Taz jumping across a cattle drive, and the boss of the world is [[WesternAnimation/BullyForBugs Toro the Bull]], whom Taz fights as a BullFightBoss.
