  • This episode is so bad, it defies description. From the lame video of Fonzie supposedly riding the bull, to the obviously and badly wigged stunt double used on the wide shots. Just awful, awful, awful...And the dialogue is laughably bad.moreless

    This episode is so bad, it defies description. From the laughably awful video of Fonzie supposedly riding the bull, to the obviously and badly wigged stunt double used on the wide shots. Just awful, awful, awful...And the dialogue is beyond lame.



    There is a scene where Shortcake gets taken for a ride by a runaway wagon, and you can see her standing in the wagon, yelling for help, while the horses are standing still! All she has to do is jump out! But of course she doesn't and Fonzie has to save her with his motorcycle, aided by Richie. And, as with Jump The Shark, it ends with Anson Williams (perhaps one of the most awful singers of all time) croaking through a cringe-inducing love ballad while a beautiful girl rests her freshly-shampooed, blonde head on his shoulder. Of course, all these Milwaukee putzes end up with dim-witted, model-quality girls on their arms. Even Tom Bosley gets into the act with a few vomitous lovey-dovey comments to Marion at the end. This is what happens when Jump the Shark jumps the shark! And to think the show went on for another 5 seasons after this! What were we all thinking?moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In the first part of this episode, it is announced that the $1000 offer to ride the bull is good for Diablo's entire stay at the Bar A ranch. However, Buchanan reminded the Cunninghams in this part that the offer is only good during the rodeo. He does decide to "bend" the rules, rules that were not being broken.

    • When Fonzie was supposed to be in the barrel, the bull knocked it over and you could clearly see that he wasn't in it. There was something grey - possibly a sack. Also, when the bull was knocking the barrel around, you could see it was empty.
