Cheyenne is a western television series of 108 black-and-white episodes broadcast on ABC from 1955 to 1963. The show was the first hour-long western, and in fact the first hour-long dramatic series of any kind, with continuing characters, to last more than one season. It was also the first series to be made by a major Hollywood film studio which did not derive from its established film properties,[4] and the first of a long chain of Warner Brothers original series produced by William T. Orr.

Loosely based on the 1947 movie Cheyenne, the ABC-TV series ran between September 20, 1955 and September 13, 1963. The series alternated bi-weekly with other shows, which led to a total of 107 episodes.

Cheyenne was television's first hour-long series. The basic plot had frontiersman Cheyenne Bodie, capably played by Clint Walker, roaming the west righting wrongs and meeting single women along the way. Produced by Roy Huggins and William Orr, writers included Bert Arthur. The popular theme song was by William Lava and Stanley Jones.

The series was hugely successful and won the Golden Globe Award in 1957. Dell Comics published twenty comic books with full color photo covers based on the show between 1956 and 1961.
