  • Episode Description
  • During a very busy week at Sladetown, Wyatt has to bring down a trio of armored car-heisting brothers; help a woman find her daughter, who's run away because her mother's drunken boyfriend is physically abusive; put a stop to both an insurance frauder's bogus claim that he hurt his neck after falling off one of the carnival's merry-go-rounds and to Evan's own money-making scams; and locate Mickey the lion after he gets loose from his cage.moreless

    • Cannell would of course take guest star Fred Dryer into TV stardom the next year with Hunter, a show whose ratings bit just as bad as The Rousters' throughout its first season, but which NBC gave time to find an audience. Dryer got the role, in part, because Brandon Tartikoff liked his work here.

    • The episode title was the series' working title.

    • Music: "Ragtime Cowboy Joe," performed by Maxine Stuart

    • Jerry Biggs is credited as Jerry Dale Biggs, and Leo Gordon is credited as Leo V. Gordon.

    • This extended pilot episode is available on home video. While currently out-of-print, used copies are pretty easy to come by from places like ebay and Amazon.com.
