This was a decent episode. Reminded me a little of the "Flim-flam Man" movie with George C. Scott. Plot was entertaining.


Annoying cat sounds and accents (poor Jada, who I assume was forced to perform that way). Audio is not the greatest but is reasonably clear.


When Doc Meriweather, known as the Rainbow Man, hears how Hank lost his small fortune gambling and now stands to lose the woman he loves to card shark Champ Rutledge, he vows to end the gambler’s threat to the whole town. With Hank as his shill in a minor betting scheme, Doc works his way into a card game with Champ, where the stakes of which include not only the control of the town but also the gamblers’ lives.


I’ll match you, and raise a thousand! Hold on to your hats, and hide your derringers! Ralph Bell is in the House!!!

Smartly written episode with some witty banter. "It's a lovely world, you know. If we just leave it that way.". A good story with a cat named Mrs. Moonlight, lost loves, and slight of hand. Reminds of a chapter from an old Tom Robbins novel. Enjoy.
