Plot Synopsis:

An all-star cast headlines this hilarious made for television movie spoof on the western genre. John Astin The Addams Family plays Evil Roy Slade, the meanest villain in the West. The good guys do not have a chance, as Evil Roy turns the tables on the classic western story of good triumphing over evil. Western veteran Pat Butram narrates, and Mickey Rooney, Dick Shawn, Henry Gibson, Edie Adams, Pamela Austin, Milton Berle, Pat Morita, Ed Begley Jr., Dom DeLuise and Penny Marshall co-star.

The Brothers O'Toole takes slapstick western comedy to new heights, in this hilarious take-off on the Old West. The O'Toole Brothers are Eastern con men, exceptionally good at talking their way out of tight situations. When they ride into Molybdenum, Colorado, not suspecting the riches beneath the streets, they turn the sleepy mining town up-side down in their search for the gold. High-spirited hijinks ensue, with the brothers involved in everything from stolen gambling equipment to a belchin', cussin'and spittin' contest. John Astin The Addams Family stars in a dual role, as Michael O'Toole, a sophisticated eastern con man; and as Desperate Ambrose, a seedy western bandito. Michael's brother Timothy is played by Steve Carlson The Virginian, and the exceptionally funny cast also includes Pat Carroll, Jesse White, Lee Meriwether and Hans Conried.
