Tumbleweeds, Tom Ryan's cheerfully irreverent look at the "Old West," is the popular comic strip in hundreds of newspapers. Here it is adapted as a lively musical bursting with wonderful music, lively lyrics and hilarious jokes. Tumbleweeds gets its name from the likeable cowpoke who tries his best to be an optimist. It ain't easy because he lives in the wretched town of Grimy Gulch which is populated by such bizarre characters as Hildegard Hamhocker, who's always on the lookout for a husband (any husband as long as it's Tumbleweeds), Judge Frump (who gives everyone a fair and impartial conviction), Colonel Fluster of Fort Ridiculous (he's lost his troops) and a tribe of eccentric Indians called the Poohawks. The Choo-Choo Railway wants to wipe the town from the map, and it sends Clementine Greedy to arrange things with the meanest man in town... Snake-Eye McFoul. No one is interested in Tumbleweeds' attempt to improve the town except his former school teacher, Prudence Lovely, who arrives with a stagecoach of romantic young ladies on an educational tour. To help out, Prudence plans to open a "School For the Ignorant." Thanks to Tumbleweeds, things do return to normal (or sub-normal in the case of Grimy Gulch) in a rousing slam-bang finale.
