Synopsis: Billy lives on the ranch built by his great, great grand-father, The Virginian (created by Owen Wister). Billy’s grandfather – played by James Drury (TV’s “Virginian”) – cares for Billy ever since a motorcycle accident took the life of Billy’s dad and left Billy paralyzed from the waist down. But Billy’s tough and doesn’t let it get him down. He loves to listen to his grandpa tell stories of The Virginian and the old west and is often whisked back in his dreams to play and hang out with all the characters from “The Virginian”. And that is where the animation kicks in. A fun and sometimes poignant romp that bridges current day with the old west.
