Hoppy foils bank bandits
29 February 2000 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

A gang of thieves attempt to pin an a robbery and shooting on a foolish young man. Disbelieving his guilt, Hoppy sets out to prove his friend's innocence. After a bank is held up and his friend is once again in hot water, Hoppy must put himself in danger in a shoot-out with the gang at a lonely cabin in the hills. Seems like this kid is forever getting his butt in a wringer.
