Showdown in the Old West is the twenty-fifth episode of Jackie Chan Adventures.


Along a desert freeway, Jackie and company stop by an Old West ghost town. They find a book chronicling the adventures of Jackie's ancestor, who was a sheriff of the Old West.


Jackie, Uncle, and Jade come across an Old West ghost town on their way back from an estate sale in Reno along a desert freeway. Jackie, whose great-great-grandfather apparently lived in such a town back in the Old West days, insists on stopping to visit it. Jade then comes across a pulp novel titled The Hong Kong Kid, with the titular character depicted on the cover bearing a striking resemblance to Jackie, much to Jade's astonishment. At Jade's urging, Jackie begins reading the book, which details the story of Jackie's ancestor, who worked on the railroad with a fellow worker who was the spitting image of Tohru.
