Brothers, Bull and Jonathan Bullivan, survive a lynching of a group of blacks who have found them cheating at cards. After a long trek, the two arrive in Golden City, which is in the hands of a group of outlaws led by the mayor Fats Missouri, a shady individual that hides under the mask of legality. Along with the owner of the saloon, and with the collaboration of Black Boy, Fats Missouri is able to terrorize the inhabitants of Golden City to the point that everyone has decided to sell their land, houses and farms for very little money and move to other areas. Of course, the land, houses and farms were bought secretly by Fats and his cronies. The Bullivan brothers, having just arrived in town, they meet two sisters, Suzanne and Clementine, and they fall in love and soon after being hungry, have a hearty chicken dinner. In reality the chicken had been treated with a special energy formula by Little Barnum an organizer of cock fights. This makes the Bullivans practically invincible and full of energy. Among their following adventures, the two brothers manage to vanquish the gang of criminals. But the brothers Bullivan prefer to leave Golden City in search of new adventures, accompanied by Suzanne and Clementine.
