SummaryEdit

As payment for a one night performance in a circus, Little Joe and Hoss are presented with "Old Sheba", a rather ragged elephant. They believe they can care for the creature, but encounter opposition from Ben and Adam. Ben takes the matter into his own hands and suffers comically for it.

After Hoss injures traveling circus wrestler, Bearcat Sampson, during an exhibition match, he and manager, Little Joe, agree that Hoss will take the Bearcat's place in the ring while he recovers; but the circus owner squanders Hoss' winnings and the Cartwrights end up with an unconventional paycheck...Old Sheba, the circus elephant.
