Katherine "Kit" Colby was the daughter of Judge Colby in the western town of Moon Bow in the mid-20th Century.

Named after the legendary frontiersman Kit Carson, she proved herself just as skilled at marksmanship and horseback riding as her namesake. When the Moon Bow town council decided to hold a contest, open to all, to select a new sheriff, Kit entered against her father's protestations. Not only did Kit win the contest, she also foiled a gang of outlaws who tried to rob a bank while most of the townsfolk were out watching the show, proving herself more than qualified for the position of sheriff and winning both the town's and her father's admiration. She was sworn in as sheriff the next day, and that very same day busted the bank robbers again when they broke out of prison.

  • Kit Colby was the star of a backup feature in the licensed comic Jimmy Wakely, appearing in all but two issues of the series.
