The American television series Alias Smith and Jones is concerned about the activities of two guys Hannibal Heyes and Jedediah Curry who after living outside the law, were attempting to bring about a reform, they wanted to change from living with lies to one of honesty and respect for the law.

They wanted to break away from the gang and live new and clean lives. Their plea was endorsed by the governor who gave them his conditional support.

However, he told them he could not pardon their past offenses immediately and so easily but that they needed to work hard and earn it. In the course of that process, they were still to be under the law as wanted men. The governor made this agreement with them in private and wanted it to be kept confidential for political concerns.

Hannibal Heyes and Jedediah Curry were well known cousins. Hannibal was also known as Smith was the crafty one who was always capable of figuring the way out of every situation while Jedediah also known as Jones was not as smart as Smith and was always slow but could handle the gun better than Smith and so was the gunman between the two. The two guys did all they could in their operations to avoid killing people. They always came across detectives and men of the law who were closely monitoring their activities.

The show comprised a mixture of gunplay, fun and humor, some drama and a series of chases.

The title of the series stemmed from their names Smith and Jones, by which they were most known and referred to.
