Plot

When Baddy dies, his heir, Waldo Badminton, a tenderfoot, leaves from England to take possession of his ranch. This newcomer is not to the liking of Jack Ready, who was waiting to buy Baddy's ranch, a good reason to try to bully the newcomer! This one, contrary to expectations, makes his way in the Far West, aided by Lucky Luke, his butler Jasper and Sam, the Indian who served Baddy. Jack Ready then fakes his death and has Waldo accused. The ruse is quickly discovered by Lucky Luke, giving the opportunity to hold a pistol duel in European style. Defeated, Ready and his sidekick leave town. Another tenderfoot then arrives from England, who Waldo dislikes, and gives the same tenderfoot treatment as he was given.

Characters

  • Waldo Badmington: The tenderfoot, looks like Albert Uderzo. The latter was amused but Morris later said it is only a coincidence.
  • Jasper: Waldo's long-suffering butler.
  • Sam: An Indian. Baddy saved his life when he was young, devoting him to Baddy and Waldo.
  • Jack Ready: Wants to take possession of Baddy's land, which adjoins his.
