In the TAGS Season 5 episode "TV Or Not TV" from early 1965, is the initial references to bringing "Sheriff Without A Gun" to the screen, or rather in this case, the small Television screen. Within the spoiler alert (Key plot points revealed!), I've detailed why I believe all credibility is shot between the above and the later Season 6 Color "Sheriff Without A Gun" series of episodes: Spoiler While it has been decades since I've viewed the later Season 6 "Sheriff Without A Gun" episodes, when this is being shot as a Motion Picture, it is painfully obvious that all credibility is shot to hell with the latter, especially on two key points; first with the earlier Black & White episode ending up with the whole thing being a crooked scam; and in one of the subsequent Color episodes, Gavin MacLeod, who played one of the scam artists in the Season 5 episode (Quite predominantly, I might add!), also portrays the star playing the "Sheriff Without A Gun" title character! Yes, I get it that actors will reappear in different roles in the same series over time (IE. Allan Melvin was heavily utilized during TAGS Black & White seasons!), but in my opinion, this is really stretching it a bit much! To be fair, perhaps the Gavin MacLeod recasting could have been some kind of deliberate in joke wink on the part of the show's casting department? In my opinion, even within the "TV Or Not TV" episode itself, credibility is rather stretched: Spoiler The "Sheriff Without A Gun" TV Series scam extended to a successfully published article in a monthly magazine? REALLY? CHEERS!
