This lively and entertaining cable series was highlighted by lots of famous faces in familiar classic tales (as was Shelley Duvall's Fairie Tale Theater). Pecos Bill, King of the Cowboys brings together then-sizzlin' hot Steven Guttenberg and Rebecca DeMornay, fresh from box-office success ("Cocoon," "Risky Business," respectively). This mid-'80s series captures them at their most appealing. Guttenberg embodies the naively charming Pecos Bill, who was raised by wolves and rowdy enough to set dreary little Petunia City, Texas, on its staid little ear. DeMornay, as the mayor's misunderstood and tomboyish daughter, is coy and sweet, and when she grabs Pecos Bill's fancy, she has the audience rootin' for her. Like Duvall's other tales there is an appropriately good message, but one welcomed by any parent. Viewers will learn about looking at things from a different perspective, that change can be good, that acceptance and kindness are rewarded, and that the West really was wild. Martin Mull, as the town's mayor, is, as usual, excellent and funny. (Ages 4 and older) --N.F. Mendoza
