The Devil's Hole Gang roamed the Old West in the later half of the nineteenth century. It members included Wheat (Earl Holliman), Lobo (Read Morgan), Kyle (Dennis Fimple) Hannibal Heyes (Peter Deuel/Roger Davis) and Jed "Kid" Curry (Ben Murphy).

One day, however, Heyes and Curry decided they wanted to go straight and so they struck a deal with the territorial governor. If they stayed out of trouble they would be pardoned but only the Governor knew about the deal. Until then they would still be wanted by the law.

In their new life they took on the alias of Joshua Smith (Hannibal) and Thaddeus Jones (Curry) and made the best of things until their pardon came.

Throughout the series they were chased by posses, bounty hunters and their old gang members who tried to entice them back into the fold.

The Series Opening Narration

[Kid Curry and Hannibal Heyes escaping from a posse] 

Narrator:  Hannibal Heyes and Kid Curry, the two most successful outlaws in the history of the west. And in all the trains and   banks they robbed, they never shot anyone. This made our two Kansas cousins very popular with everyone but the railroads and the banks.
Kid Curry: [Posse in hot pursuit] There's one thing we've  got to get, Heyes.
Hannibal Heyes:   What's that?"
Kid Curry:  Out of this business!
Governor's Assistant: The Governor can't come flat out and give you amnesty now. First you've got to prove you deserve it.
 Hannibal Heyes:  So all we've got to do is stay out of trouble until the Governor figures we deserve amnesty?
    Kid Curry:  But in the meantime we'll still be wanted?
Governor's Assistant:  Well that's true. Til then only you, me and the Governor will know about it. It'll be our secret.
 Hannibal Heyes:  Hah, that's a good deal?
Kid Curry: [Escaping from a posse] I sure wish the governor would let more people in on our secret.
