Trivia

Sam refers to "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras Country", one of Mark Twain's short stories. See more »

Goofs

In a discussion between "The Enterprise"s publisher Bill Raleigh and writer Sam Clemens, Bill uses the term "comic strip"; however, according to Britannica.com, the term "comic strip" (despite the actual existence of serial illustrations in newspapers) wasn't established until 1900, well after the 1860s, in which "Bonanza" is set. (see "Memorable Quotes") See more »

Quotes

Bill Raleigh: Are you afraid "The Enterprise" won't print any story you happen to dig up?
Samuel Clemens: You know, I had a little bet with myself that you'd go along with me.
Bill Raleigh: Sam, this is a newspaper, not a comic strip - you come up with a story, and "The Enterprise"ll print it!

Mark Twain?
1 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It took me several days just to watch this episode for this review. I just couldn't get into it. I didn't think the character in here fit the image of Mark Twain, and I just couldn't like the guy. Though the episode held some humerus spots, like the naked girl, and some not so humorous spots, like the girl's story; I just can't quite get into it.

One thing about Bonanza: It's amazing how well put together the episodes are. There aren't many shows that can pull off going from humorous to tear-jerking in less than thirty seconds, but they prove to do just that time and time again.

Adam was his own "I'm better than you" self in this as well.
