Little Joe "trains" Hoss to fight so that the two can split the winnings of a future challenge of a pro fighter.
24 May 2006 | by cylgnSee all my reviews

This is a nice humorous episode that makes caricatures of both of the young Cartwrights. Very silly, not a serious moment in the whole show. Enjoyable humor. This episode presents the two sons in much the same way, goofy, that they seemed for brief periods in many other episodes. The difference is that in this one they are "dufuss" the whole time. Hoss does all the work while Joe acts like he is the "one" putting forth all the effort. Dad sees them both as daft. Except for the "wholesomeness" one might think that the writers had an elephant for free and needed a plot to fit it into. See it to find out about the elephant.
