  • Two bad guys and a sexy girl kidnap Lobo and strap a bomb on him. They want him to rob the Orly Bank and help them make a clean getaway. When Lobo fakes a heart condition, they strap the bomb to Perkins. Birdie keeps his cool and saves the day.

    I really got a kick out of this show. It makes me sad when I see what passes for comedy today. It has gotten to be so dark. This episode was particularly good since it showcased the talents of Mills Watson as Deputy Perkins. Not since Don Knotts played another small town deputy - Barney Fife - have I laughed so hard. The bank heist angle was inventive then, but sadly has been played out in real life in recent years. All in all this show was what it was pure entertainment. Thanks to the Retro Television Network for airing it!
