You Will Find All the Answers in Show #42! 

Have Gun, Will Travel

The money from a notorious bank robbery is still missing.  The bank robber is dead. The question everyone is asking, however, is: Does his widow know where the money is hidden?  More importantly, is Paladin up to the job of finding out?

  Here's a hint: Never underestimate this Soldier of Fortune when it comes to charming the ladies.  This is a fun story and a good showcase for John Dehner's talents.

I Love A Mystery

Doc & Reggie hog-tie the Maestro so they will be free to follow Jack into the desert in order to offer him protection (even though Jack has told them to stay put).   

While trailing Jack they hear him being attacked!  Is there any way they can find him out in the dark desert night before the attacker turns on them?  Listen as the boys debate this frightfully funny dilemma. 

Fibber McGee & Molly

Fibber has lost his birth certificate and can't find it anywhere.

When he advises Mayor Latrivia of his situation, the Mayor advises that the best way to resolve the problem is for Fibber to take a citizenship test. 

Is Fibber up to the challenge?  Naturally Mister McGee is certain he will be able to pass the test with flying colors --- but he is in for a rude awakening.  The results are great fun and lots of laughs!


Dooley, a buffalo skinner, has been working for two buffalo hunters by the names of Culpit and Faber.  One morning Dooley comes into Dodge City to turn himself in to Matt Dillon because he confesses he has killed a man. 

It seems that after a night of serious drinking Dooley woke up to find Faber dead. Culpit tells Dooley he commited the crime.  Dooley can't remember doing it, but admits he tends to become violent when he's drunk.
