Goofs

Once "Hercules" bends the iron bar, he hands it to the announcer. When the announcer then hands it to Hoss to see if it is indeed an iron bar, it is a different bar. It is bent at a different angle and appears to be a different color as well. See more »

The Taming of a modern day woman
25 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Little Joe and Hoss plan on having a night at the carnival with two pretty girls. But when Della Thompson gets wonderlust, she gets herself into deep trouble. She toys with people by flirting endlessly and hinting that she wants more out of life. What follows is a night that was a little more wild then either Cartwright boy was planning.

This is one of the "lighter" side of life episodes. It's not all jokes, but there is lots of laughs in it. Unfortunately, it also has a serious side which means death for some...

A fat lady, a bearded lady, and a pretty lady are among the case of the carnival.
