SummaryEdit

No one really believes Hoss' fantastic story about the strongbox full of gold he shows up with. He claims it was given to him by leprechauns.

Wherever it came from, it's enough to send locals on a wild treasure hunt for more. In a way, Hoss' leprechauns do exist; they're a band of little people from the carnival who have staged a rebellion against their shady boss, Professor McCarthy.

PlotEdit

Hoss scares a bear that has treed a green-clad little man, subsequently finds a buried strongbox filled with bags of gold dust and, when both the treasure and its owner disappear, unsuccessfully tries to convince his skeptical family that he'd discovered a leprechaun's hoard.

But the whole town goes searching for the mythical men after a newly arrived Irish professor confirms the presence of multiple leprechauns...and their gold!
