Bart howls like a hound dog when an alluring witch ravels him in great Smoky Mountain feud-in, fight-in and spell-in. Riding to Hound Dog, Tennessee to collect a debt from High Card Harris, Bart ignored a raven perched on a road sign, who the banshee insists is her dead Pappy. Bart shrugs off the witch's forebodings, then sees the Southern Hamlet disintegrate when he gives the raven-haired enchantress a lift in. Bart's own Pappy never told him there'd be days like this, much worse nights. Written by David Stevens

Strictly for Laughs
10 November 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

What guy wouldn't like the winsome Nancy (Sands) dropping into his lap as he rides through the forest. So what if she's a witch. Plus, she's got two brothers with combined muscle power of an oxen team and an IQ of about 50. Their favorite pastime, as it turns out, is "bashing" poor Bart while he tries to recover his cash and his reputation after losing to the brothers in poker, of all things. Of course, they poured a gallon of corn likker down his gullet first. And why is it exactly that everyone wants Peaches, the kind that isn't from a tree.

An episode like this is mainly a matter of taste since it's played strictly for laughs. To me, it's pretty funny, thanks to deft comedic performances from Kelly and Sands. That chain reaction of mishaps in town is also a hoot and well staged, to boot. On the whole, the entry's cleverly done, though on the outer edge of the tongue-in-cheek the series was famous for.
