J.J. Starbuck was a short lived NBC series about a cornpone-spouting J.J. (Jerome Jeremiah) Starbuck, played by Dale Robertson (Tales of Wells Fargo and Iron Horse ), a Texan millionaire who wears ten-gallon hats, cowboy boots and fancy western shirts. He drives a flashy 1961 Lincoln limo with steer horns on the hood and a horn that plays "The Eyes of Texas ," and spouts a steady stream of folksy homilies. After becoming bored with life, Starbuck begins wandering around the country, helping out 'good folks' in trouble, using his influence and contacts, and more than often doing a little detective work .
