''The Cisco Kid'' was a half-hour [[TheWildWest American Western]] that ran from 1950 to 1956. Starring Duncan Renaldo and Leo Carrillo, it was loosely based off the character of the same name in O. Henry's 1907 short story, "The Caballero's Way”.

Adapted from the 1930s film and the 40s [[RadioDrama radio show]]of the same name, the TV series continued the adventures of Cisco and his partner Pancho. In the series, both Cisco and Pancho are technically desperadoes who are wanted for a number of unspecified crimes and [[WalkingTheEarth wander the backcountry of Northern Mexico and the old American Southwest]] to elude the law. However, they are viewed by townsfolk and honest, upstanding peace officers alike as [[JustLikeRobinHood modern-day Robin Hoods]] because of their willingness to [[WeHelpTheHelpless assist the oppressed and downtrodden]] when [[CorruptBureaucrat political figures]] and [[DirtyCop the law]] either shows itself to be too crooked or refuses to help out. In the end, Cisco and Pancho always catch the bad guy, {{always save the girl}} and always save the day.

''The Cisco Kid'' is also famous for a number of television firsts. It was the first TV show to be filmed entirely in color. And, it was the very first TV show to have Hispanic actors in regular starring roles.

It was also nominated in 1953 for an Emmy in children's programming.

By the time the show ended in 1956, it was rated by ''Billboard'' magazine as the most popular filmed television series for children in the United States. As well as becoming an influence in pop culture for generations of children and adults.

!! ''The Cisco Kid'' is the TropeNamer for:
* OhCisco: Every episode (which was brought over from the radio series) would end with either Pancho, or Cisco, either pointing out a positive moral or cracking a corny joke about their adventure, which would prompt Pancho to say "Oh, Cisssco!", which Cisco would reply with "Oh, Paaancho!" (or vice versa)... and everyone would laugh.
