Santa Claus Rustlers
IN BRIEF: Shortly before Christmas, Hopalong and California are heading back to the Bar-20 after having driven cattle to Arizona. Hoppy's horse throws a shoe and California didn't pack any spares. They meet up with talkative Billy Stilwell, who's running away to find work so he can earn money to buy his family Christmas gifts. They meet bitter, lame ranch hand Johnny NoName, who challenges them, saying they rustled cattle from the ranch. At the ranch house, Amos Stilwell says they're blameless. Other family members are Ma and Betty, who all are joint owners of the herd, says Stilwell. Johnny is the only hand, as he's the only one who would work for deferred wages on the small ranch. Spunky Betty says she could beat California at calf roping. She calls him "drizzle puss" and he says he'll shave his chin if he can't best her. He loses, not knowing she's won ribbons at rodeos. On the way to town, someone shoots at the cowboys. In town, they confront Johnny, who has new boots, a rifle and other items. Hoppy brushes it off, saying he'll see the young hand at the ranch. California fumes. "Hoppy, sometimes you make me so mad I could bite through a cinch ring," he sputters. The cowboys string popcorn, and set a trap. It turns out four trees show up; all the family members had sold off a few of their own head in order to buy gifts. Johnny shot warning shots to protect Betty, whom he'd learned had sold some head. California insists on singing, but has eaten too much popcorn and has a dry throat - to Hoppy's great relief. [Perdham; Music: Albert Glasser] [Last original episode to air.]
