Described by Disney as what is the first Western series for preschoolers, the show explores questions about morals and manners thru the adventures of Sheriff Callie, her deputy Peck, a woodpecker, and Toby, their cactus sidekick. Callie is the sheriff for the frontier-era town of Nice and Friendly Corners.

In an interview with the official Disney fan club in January, Moore relayed what she admired about the female lead character, sharing that: “I love that Callie chases bandits, rescues townspeople and rides out to help someone in trouble. She’s really the hero of Nice and Friendly Corners!

Sheriff Callie’s Wild West airs daily on both the main Disney Channel and Disney Junior. Each half-hour episode is composed of two stories and a new episode will premiere this coming Friday, June 20th on the Disney Channel at 9am (ET/PT). In the first installment, entitled “Moustache Toby”, Toby learns a lesson about trying to be something he is not when wearing a fake moustache to appear like a tough cowboy gets him into trouble. Then, problems result when chilies are taken without permission during the town’s annual Chili Cook-off in “Doc’s Cheatin’ Chili”.

Interested parents can learn more about the series, which carries a TV-Y (all children) guideline, at Sheriff Callie’s Wild West.
