Wishbone, portrayed by Paul Brinegar, is cook of the crew that drives cattle along the Sedalia Trail in the series Rawhide. Every time the drovers don't like the cooking the joke's on him, but Wishbone actually is a good cook and most of the time he is well-appreciated by his colleagues and his boss Gil Favor.

Throughout the series Wishbone is assisted by Mushy, whose help is often underestimated.
