Cosgrove Hall Wiki

Cowboys and Indiscipline is Episode 4 in Season 1 of Cosgrove Hall's 2D animated cartoon TV show "Victor and Hugo: Bunglers in Crime" that was broadcasted on ITV in the UK on September 27, 1991.


After a failed hold-up at a drive-in movie theatre, the brothers hitch a train ride to Tombstone, Arizona (by driving on the railway tracks), where they drive local bandit Black Jake mad with animal impressions and make a new "friend" in the form of the town's Marshal, Wyatt Eartle; however, after Eartle catches Hugo trying to smash down the door of the Fasbucz Bank with a hammer, he throws him in jail, so Victor hires a horse to break him out. They then try to blow up the bank's safe with dynamite they bought from the general store, but do not notice that it is about to explode until it is too late, so they get blown through its roof and both of them end up back in jail.
