"Tiger Bill's Wild West" may not be as well known as the traveling shows of Buffalo Bill or Pawnee Bill but it toured for 24 seasons - a record second only to Buffalo Bill's Wild West which lasted 30 years ( Pawnee Bill's show lasted 23 years, and only six of the other 113 Wild West shows known to have existed lasted more than three years).

The "Tiger Bill Show" originated in the 1890's and was owned by one "Doc Pike" better known as "Tiger Bill". For a number of years "Tiger Bill" and his show toured Michigan, Indiana and Ohio with a Michigan man named Dave Perriene. Pereiene bought out "Doc Pike" and at one time owned 2 Shows "Tiger Bill's Wild West" and "Bronco Joes Wild West". Sometime around 1905 Perriene sold "Tiger Bill's to Emett Snyder, forever after known as “Colonel Tiger Bill”. The Show traveled to Kentucky and as far south and west as Texas.

In 1909 Col. Tiger Bill teamed up with legendary Circus Owner and Animal Trainer Colonel George W. Hall better known as "Popcorn Hall". This incarnation of "Tiger Bill's Wild West" offered many features of a traveling circus and menagerie and a consummate Wild West Show. In years to come “Col. Tiger Bill” and son Leo (later known as “Tiger Bill” himself) traveled the United States as owners and managers of “Tiger Bill‘s Wild West”.
