Buster the Little Cowboy

Buster the Little Cowboy

Buster lives in the Wild West and all he wants to do is grow up to become a cowboy. He dresses in a cowboy outfit and ropes himself a pony named Spot, who promptly bucks the little cowboy across a river. Watching this is Cherry, a little Indian girl, who uses her buffalo horn to attract her wild animal friends, the beavers, who chew their way through a tree, allowing Buster back across the bridgeless river. Cherry and Buster become the best of friends and even spot, sorry that he had thrown Buster off, joins in for a jolly gallop. Before long, Buster (and Cherry's animal friends) builds a log cabin and, now he has his outfit, his horse and his own home on the range, he really feels like a cowboy.
