One of the funniest episodes of Bonanza in my opinion! Joe's laughing is really what got me!

This was a family favorite. Back in the day we'd sit on the floor in front of the television just to catch a glimpse of those leprechauns - mother would even make popcorn.

This is a classic Cartwright Family comedy! It has so many hilarious scenes. I turned this on for my granddaughter one day when it was rainy and she couldn't go outside. She loved it.

The best part is Hoss's speech at the end.

I love this episode. It is one of the funniest ones they made. I bet the actors had fun making it, too. :ha

I'm convinced that this episode's popularity with viewers is why the producers decided to do a slew of madcap comedies in Season 6. None of them were as funny as this one, IMO. The actors really did look like they had a blast filming this episode. I laughed out loud when Adam said to Joe: "I'll go check around the house and you get the butterfly net."
:ha

One of my favorite scenes: (oh hai, nude Adam) :grin
