We Saw All of ONE Episode!, 5 December 2014
Author: richard.fuller1

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Fairly typical 'Lassie, Fury' sort of adventures. We caught one episode on a Saturday morning, after all the cartoons, looking as rich and as detailed as the old Shazam or Isis shows a few years earlier.

In this episode, the boy and girl were watching something. Someone was shooting when they shouldn't have been? The boy was hit by a ricocheting bullet, grazed his head. Had to get him to the hospital.

Seemed like a lot of dialogue. Something had to be done for the kid or something like that, or they just wanted to stop the bad guys.

What was funny was Thunder appeared like twice in the episode, to save the day by stopping the bad guys, appearing as tho the horse was 'hulking out'.

What has always made this episode memorably funny for me was we get an ending clip of the boy in the hospital, waking up and 'going to be okay', then there was a miss up and we get a scene of the MAN in the hospital. I think that was Clint Ritchie.

We got the biggest laugh, "wow, that kid was in the hospital for a LONG time!" Never saw the show again after that. No idea what happened.
