A different kind of episode that was nice to watch.
15 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a lighthearted episode that is meant to be fun. After so many serious shows it is nice to let the characters let their hair down and do some funny stuff. In this episode we have a unbelievable situation that leads to some funny lines between Festus and Doc that is a joy for watchers.

When a midget named Arizona rides into Dodge and to the Long Branch it turns a boring Saturday evening into a night people will remember. Arizona advises that since it is a night with a full moon, he will turn into a elephant at midnight. He gets a good laugh from some but others have a bad feeling. Arizona even pays three drunken cowpokes named- Fred, Ed and Red -to take care of him while he is an elephant.

Right after midnight the entire town of Dodge City is stunned to see an elephant walking down the street. Fred, Ed and Red advised that the midget had turned into the elephant right in front of their eyes. This leads to a lot of talk staying up and wanting to see the elephant return to human form. As the whole town is on the street as the sun rises and waiting for the midget to return --we as the viewer should know that something is not right.

When we find out the reason for the ruse about the elephant is is not as sinister as we might think. It turned into a nice story. Perhaps not the most interesting show but one that was a nice watch.
