Synopsis for "The Long Shot!"

Tex Dawson the Western Kid and his animal sidekicks Whirlwind and Lightning are on the trail of Drago and his gang after they robbed the Creek Bank and took a young woman named Naomi as a hostage. When the girl protests her kidnapping Drago orders one of his men to bound and gag the girl, but gets angry when they harm her. The argument keeps the outlaws distracted long enough for Tex and his pets to attack. Although the Kid manages to subdue Drago, one of his men threatens to shoot Naomi unless Dawson stands down.

The Kid lets Drago go and Drago in turn tells his minion to let the girl go. Everything becomes clear when Drago confesses that he committed the robbery so that Naomi could see him as a big man. However when she tells him that she could never respect him if he was a criminal. With Drago's minions growing restless, the Western Kid is freed from his bonds by Lightning and comes to Drago and Naomi's aid. With the help of Whirlwind, Lightning and Drago, the gang is beaten and taken into custody.

In the end Drago, having finally won Naomi's respect agree to surrender as well, and the Western Kid promises to do what he can to see that Drago gets off easy for helping him capture the rest of the gang.

Synopsis for "White Fury!"

Tex Dawson and his animal sidekicks are setting up camp for the night. When Whirlwind's old nemesis -- the wild horse named the White Fury -- is heard over nearby, the Western Kid forbids Whirlwind to go out and fight his old foe. However when the Kid goes to sleep for the night Whirlwind tries to go off and answer the White Fury's challenge. However, he is stopped by Lightning who grabs a rope and ropes him up. Lightning, not under orders from Tex, goes out and attacks the White Fury.

Due to the fact that the German Shepard is greatly outmatched against the White Fury, Lightning instead lures the rival horse close to Whirlwind. Lightning bites through the rope freeing Whirlwind who defeats the White Fury in battle. The next morning, Tex wakes up none the wiser of what happened the previous night.

No far away as Lightning chews through his bonds, the Kid decides to pay Lew Baker a visit and find out why he is so eager to see him killed.
