Bret (James Garner) and Bart (Jack
Kelly) Maverick were gambling
brothers, who were the main heroes of
the story. The Mavericks  always had
some trick up their sleeve to counter
some unscrupulous character, who
was trying to cheat. The Mavericks
always tricked the tricksters. Many of
the stories were serious, but they also
had humor. The Mavericks were
honest gamblers. There were always
plenty of pretty girls.
