Wishbone's Dog Days of the West is a telefilm that first aired in 1998. It was shot in Galisteo and Santa Fe,New Mexico. Apache actor Adam Sanchez (credited as Adan Sanchez) was casted as Dan Bloodgood. His earlier role on that series was Lee Natonabah in its episode "Dances with Dogs", a parody title of Dances with Wolves. He unfortunately passed away three months later in Albuquerque.

Plot

Long Bill Longley and his best friend, Tom Merwin, team up to stop a bad guy named Calliope Catesby. Meanwhile, a sneaky TV reporter tries to make Wanda Gilmore seem as if she's the town tyrant. It is up to Wishbone and his friends to come to Wanda's rescue.

Reception

The movie won a Daytime Emmy for "Outstanding Art Direction/Set Decoration/Scenic Design" in 1998. It got nominated for a Daytime Emmy for "Outstanding Costume Design/Styling", "Outstanding Directing in a Children's Special", and "Outstanding Main Title Design" in 1998. A Common Sense Media review says, "The pleasing visuals and fast-moving, double-trouble plots make Dog Days of the West one of the best in the Wishbone series. The value of friendship is emphasized in this episode; the show exposes children to O. Henry's short stories and infuses the traditional western with an updated perspective. As unlikely as it seems, Wishbone's wild west fable blends nicely with the contemporary story of a TV reporter running roughshod over one of Oakdale's finest citizens. With two fast moving plots, finely drawncharacters and exciting historical visuals, Dog Days of the West will keep kids, and many adults, glued to the screen".
