Storyline

Intending to confront the card-shark who he believes bushwhacked and robbed him, Little Joe instead decides to get his money back by betting the shady gambler that big brother Hoss will win the Founders' Day flapjack eating contest against champion Big Ed Simpson. But Hoss isn't sure that winning the five hundred dollar first prize is worth suffering through his little brother's training program, especially when it includes meals consisting of only carrots, apples and water...and no beer!

Hilarious episode of a Great Western
27 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Little Joe is in big trouble. He gambles his money away, he loses something that belongs to Adam, he breaks a window in his own bedroom and then puts Hoss into a contest!! In a rip roaring comedy that the Bonanza series was always capable of, I enjoyed every single scene in this movie! For one episode, gone are the heavy melodramatic writing, serious plot lines and sad outcomes! Hoss and Little Joe do some great comedic acting in this one. Made in 1965, it is still timeless and has every element of enjoyment that the Bonanza series thrilled us with for so many years. This actually comes close to "Hoss and the Leprechauns" show in laughter and good fun.
