Oh is that a fact? I haven't read much fanfic but it's interesting that such a small, tantalizing bit of nude Adam flesh is more than enough to fire up fans' imaginations. :lol

P.S. – and why was Ben wearing his robe in bed? :think
Going on scenes for creating FF, Adam either sleeps in the raw or sleeps fully dressed as here in "Hound Dog."

You can even see the black shirt collar although PR made some attempt to close the robe much higher than normal. ML also just threw a nightshirt over his trousers and boots but he did seem to remove his shirt.

Bu it's nice for LG to give us a little flash of leg although he kept his socks on. :grin

If you're looking for "silly" episode, this is one of several. I like it, but it is not one of my favorites.

I enjoyed this episode a lot, especially where Hoss is recounting the tale to his family and nobody believes him, Adam and Joe least of all to the point where Adam begins teasing him relentlessly. Also, I like to take note of the directors of the episodes, just in case I run across their names somewhere else. I recently got Season 2 and Season 5 of Daniel Boone, and sure enough, several of the episodes on Season 2 had been directed by none other than John Florea.

Yesterday I watched my DVR'd Project Bluebook and the episode was about the Kelly-Hopkinsville, Kentucky alien encounter. (BTW, if you're not watching this, it's very good with Aiden Quinn (Petyr Littlefinger in GOT) as Dr. Hynek and Michael Malarkey (yeah -- that's his name) as Captain Quinn. Anyway, the "aliens" were described by the witnesses as "little gray men" but the media, for some unknown reason, used the term "little green men." This was the first time that term was used -- 1955. It made me wonder if 8 years later, the fact that the writers had Hoss describe the leprechauns as little green men (I seen 'em with my own two eyeballs!) was influenced by the supposed "alien" encounter.

Although no one brings up the idea of men from outer space in the episode -- unless there was an original idea by the writers that was tossed aside -- it is a charming coincidence. And Roswell, NM is not that far away.... :laughing

Yeah, I thought it was strange that people were saying "little green men" instead of "little men in green".

The history of that phrase is interesting. I remember there was an episode of "Star Trek" where the Enterprise went back to the 1960s and someone said something about "not believing in little green men", and then Spock walked in.

I remember that episode of STTOS!

And I wondered about the "little green men" in "Hoss and the Leprechauns" as the weren't green, only their clothes were. That's why I think it may have been the "alien" incident in 1955 that inspired it.

I just like everyone else love this episode. Such a wonderful acting opportunity for little people. I always liked Michael Dunn. He was marvelous in the various parts he had too. Was he a guest star on Bonanza too?

One of my favorite episodes. I like when Hoss is telling the family about the little green men and how Adam and Joe tease him. Just like brothers would. And my favorite line is when Adam tells Joe "we look for little green men riding hound dogs". Lol. Only Hoss would describe little miniature ponies as hound dogs. I smile at that every time I see this episode and because of YouTube I've seen it a lot.

Dan played Hoss perfectly as a gullible young man. I also loved when Adam and Joe were laughing at Hoss and even Ben joined in. Of course I also love that YooooHooo moment when Joe is teasing Hoss! :rotfl
