My sister just pointed out that the name "Cut Rate Joe" sounds an awful lot like "Cartwright, Joe" when it's said fast. Hmm...coincidence or done on purpose? :shrug

Maybe a bit of both. I find it strange they'd name the character Joe in the first place, seeing as they had a Joe. I mean, how hard could it be to think up another name?!? Like how about, "Cut Rate Jack", or "Cut Rate Chuck", or something like that. That's where part of me wonders if it was planned that way, by the fact the character is named Joe, and not something else. Good observation by your sister!! :thumbup Is she a Bonanza, (and maybe a :joe ,) gal too?

This is a great episode. Pa warns Hoss and Joe to be careful so they're not shanghaied and it's pa who gets shanghaied. I love when Hop Sing takes on a role along with many cousins as rescuer. We know from Michael [on Johnny Carson] that Lorne jumped in the water and lost his hairpiece and his hand came up, grabbed it and put it on crooked before coming back up.

Wait a minute, wait a minute. What you're saying is that at your age, you don't know the difference between a girl and a horse?

Watched this episode on TV Land today. First time I'd seen it. I laughed and I laughed. Ben dropping through the trap door was quite the site. Then he is pawed at, dragged, pushed and shoved around and then they put him in black clothing. What a trip this episode is! I couldn't quite figure out why Joe felt it necessary to jump headlong into the ropes on the ship. Why not just use the gangplank?
I didn't realize that was Tor Johnson grappling with Dan Blocker. Fascinating stuff.
The color in this episode is phenomenal. I don't know why it looks different. I suppose the lighting of the sets at night.
But definitely a laugh riot. They all have black eyes in the end, even Hop Sing. I'm gonna tune into this one again real soon.
Is that all you can think about at a time like this, cake???

I laugh a lot watching this also. Ben is worried that Hoss and Joe would be shanghaied but it was him that was! Hop Sing and many of his cousins were great to have along on the trip. They were heroes. :ha

I love to speculate on the small changes that would occur in this episode had Ben's backstory of a life at sea already been set.
