Today we revisit “Gypsy Traders,” the Cowboy G-Men episode that first aired on February 28, 1953. Timothy gets to indulge in a bit of comedy as the “Tall Gypsy” has an itchy encounter with Zerbo (Phil Arnold) and his flea circus.
Arnold was a hard-working character actor, often uncredited in his early film bits. He fared much better on television, turning in memorable character roles in the 1950s and ’60s. His career was cut short when he died of a heart attack at the age of 58 in 1968.
