Abahachi, Chief of the Apache Indians, and his blood brother Ranger maintain peace and justice in the Wild West. One day, Abahachi needs to take up a credit from the Shoshone Indians to finance his tribe's new saloon. Unfortunately Santa Maria, who sold the saloon, betrays Abahachi, takes the money and leaves. Soon, the Shoshones are on the warpath to get their money back, and Abahachi is forced to organize it quickly. Luckily, he, his twin brother Winnetouch, beautiful dancer Uschi and the Greek Dimitri each own a quarter of a treasure map that leads them to 'the shoe of Manitu'. There, Santa Maria already awaits them to take their new treasure away as well. But he did not think about the determination of Abahachi's team.Written by

When Abahachi shows Ranger the picture of his father, he actually shows Pierre Brice playing the title character in Winnetou: The Last Shot (1965). He tells Ranger that his father could speak French fluently and nobody knows why. Pierre Brice in from France. See more »

In the summer of 2002 the film was re-released in Germany as "Der Schuh des Manitu - Extra Large" with 8 minutes of newly shot footage. This footage is called "The Prologue" and deals with the birth and childhood of the main characters Winnetouch and Abahachi. See more »
This German film is one of the funniest films I've ever seen. Of course most of the jokes are a kind of .. simple, but if you like this humor, you will love the film. I have never seen the "bullyparade" before I saw the film and I liked it anyway. See the film! It's great.
