MeTV, 2pm

Has Hoss (Dan Blocker) been hitting the sauce on St. Paddy’s Day? In an episode that must be seen to be believed, Hoss rescues a leprechaun from an attacking bear, finds stash of gold and then has to tell everyone how he got it. Of course, no one believes the story until an Irish professor (guest star Sean McClory) shows up to confirm the existence of leprechauns. This sets the townsfolk off on a leprechaun hunt across the Ponderosa.
