Coop and Charlie ride into a small village for supplies finding it deserted. There is an Indian who stays hidden and later three men and a woman ride into town. They have been looking for the woman's father in a cave filled with bats.
Coop and Charlie looking for supplies for the wagon train find a town totally deserted except for one old Indian, and four white residents who later return. They learn that the town was deserted because of a plague of bats unleashed from a cave nearby, where a professor, now missing, went searching for a treasure left behind by Spanish priests. The Indian Isaiah Quickfox had led the professor to the cave that was used by the Indians in their rituals for boys becoming men. The rumor is that the bats are all blood eating bats and therefore dangerous. The seven people decide to all go back to the cave to search again for the professor and the treasure, despite the bats, their fear of the bats, and the distrust one of the men has for the old Indian guiding them.Written by
Riding to town looking for supplies, Robert Fuller and Frank McGrath find the place deserted I mean
like everyone left in one big hurry. Later on the two find a stoic Indian in Frank
DeKova in the title role of this episode. Later on merchant John Doucette arrives
with Ann Rennick.
Seems like this happy community was invaded by bats who were accidentally
let out of a long sealed up cave. Her father a university professor is trapped in
there. Rennick wants help to get him out. Fuller, McGrath, Rennick, Doucette
and teaching aide Andrew Prine go. But Doucette is reluctant and DeKova does
have his own agenda.
How did those bats survive in that cave?
