"Wild Burro of the West" is an episode of Walt Disney Presents. It aired on January 29, 1960.


Based on Dusty's Return, a novel by Dorothy Childs Hogner, this episode of Walt Disney Presents is all about a homeless Mexican burro named Dusty. After a flirtation with wild burro leader Blackjack, Dusty is stolen by a pair of miners who use her to tote supplies and help round up stolen cattle. Severely mistreated by her captors, Dusty finally manages a daring escape. Ultimately, Dusty allows herself to be adopted by a grizzled old prospector (Is there any other kind?), who wins over the burro with a mess of flapjacks and harmonica music. "Wild Burro of the West" was co-produced by Perkins Films.
