Hoppy cleans up Mesa Grande
29 March 2000 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

Who ever heard of a town called Big Table? Anyway, it was over run with the criminal element who would knock off stupid gold miners who didn't have brains enough not to come to town and shoot off their mouths about the big strike they just made at their secret gold mine. When Hoppy comes to town as the new marshall things change, you can bet. Good action western with lots of gunplay; and Hoppy even found himself a girlfriend.
