The Cannon

6x11
November 22, 1965

I really hate knock this show, but as a big fan of TAGS, this really is one of the cornier episodes. The governor comes to town for founders day. The mobile state museum is brought to town for the event. Goober and that clown Warren are supposed to guard the museum and end up firing the old Civil War cannon at two crooks who are attempting to burglarize the museum. Pretty poor episode, I'm afraid.
