George 'Gabby' Hayes,
The local school is causing Hoppy problems. First Bar 20 cattle are stolen when Hoppy investigates a problem there. Then the new teacher arrives and disrupts the routine of the Bar 20 hands. Later with the Bar 20 hands at graduation, the rustlers are poised to strike again. But there is dissension among them and this will lead to the break that Hoppy needs. Written by

Lots of light comedy, most of it funny. Lots of choral singing (5 songs are far too much for this to be an effective western). Hoppy uses a stereoscope. Little action, lots of talk. There is one great exchange between Hoppy & Windy involving Windy's feelings towards women. Hoppy's good natured charm & philosophy towards raising children "properly" is much in evidence here, something that would become a regular feature on his late 1940s TV show. But overall, too little plot, too little action. I give it 5/10.
