Moose and Small Paul Wheelwright ? The Subrosa Ranch ? Hilarious "Bonanza" parody with Bart squirming in the middle between 3 naive, pa whipped brothers and their worldly mail-order brides from the Barbary Coast, after matchmaker Whittleseed (Willard Waterman) is murdered. Episode also has fine performances by Kasey Rogers, Jake Sheffield as the amorous Moose, and Jim Backus as the blustery pa of the Wheelwrights, who always stick together - and we even find out why they have to ! "Three Queens Full" is adorned with splendidly over-the-top music too. Written by David Stevens

Maverick: Three Queens Full
16 May 2015 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

"Three Queens Full" parodies Bonanza. The Wheelwrights replace the Cartwrights. The Ponderosa becomes the Subrosa. Hoss becomes Moose. Daddy Wheelwright hires Bart to chaperone three brides for his three fine sons. When the girls start robbing the house, Bart teaches them manners: "Tone down the wiggle!" After some intrigue and second-guessing, the girls marry the Wheelwright boys. This is a funny episode, and Ed Robertson who wrote a book about the series decries the reliance on slapstick after James Garner left the show. Robertson was partial to the humor that arose naturally from Garner's character. As for me, I enjoyed all five seasons.
