  • Bilko, Paparelli, Zimmermen and Doberman go to Mexico to have fun but get robbed by El Muchacho and his gang of their money, clothes and try to get back without papers to the US. El Muchacho and his gang torment the guys practically in every scene.

    One of the series best. M. Gosfield is excellent especially when he plays both Doberman and El Muchacho in this episode. Good camera work too when in one scene the camera does a close up of El Muchachos face then cuts to Dobermans fat face yelling for the police. It is also classic the way Bilko tries to get back into the states without his papers. Of course Doberman loves the food declaring his special fancy for mexican Tacos. Paporelli and Zimmerman are upset they have to change clothes all the time and always having to get into a truck.
