  • Episode Description
  • Well it's traveling time for the Bumbling Brother's Circus, but once they get into Arizona, they ran into rain! The circus begins to run into Bankruptcy. Sharp-eyed Rocky notices the rain clouds seem to be following them. So Rocky goes up into the clouds to see what the deal is, but ends up in a cloud-bank and lightning coming put of the cloud. But Rocky really ends up a mysterious black plane with no pilot and no controls. Rocky lands safetly on a mesa, where he incounters an Indian. Back at the circus, Bullwinkle's animal act makes a special dedication. And the Bumbling brothers receive a statue of Thadius J. Shloomp (only they added goggles, and a squirrel tail). Boris, posing as Mayor Aloysius J. Wardealer, causes Bullwinkle and the brothers on a manhunt for him. Meanwhile, Rocky is tied to a burning stake. When Bullwinkle arrives, he get's tied up too, but he has a plan. He plays his hum-a-comb, and the Indians start a rain dance, which puts out the fire. Boris, who the big chief, orders the indian to shoot them with arrows. Natasha poses as the "mask-rider" (I believe it's a parody of the Lone Ranger).
