This show was originally broadcast on Wednesday night from 7:30- 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time during the 1967-68 season. It lasted only one season due to its competition. On ABC, it went up against "Batman" (1966), "The Flying Nun" (1967) and "Bewitched" (1964) and on NBC "Daniel Boone" (1964) and "Ironside" (1967). In the 1960s and 1970s it was a common practice for the networks to rerun old programs during the summer rerun season, even if the show had been off the air for several years. Such was the case with this show, which was shown by CBS during the summer of 1971, three years after it had been canceled.
The real Cimarron Strip is the panhandle of Oklahoma. It is very flat plains and not the mountainous or desert terrain shown in the series.
