So many new friends
9 February 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

It's a lucky day for David Canary on Bonanza as he inherits a lot of cash and stock in a land development company. Candy would be less than human if this sudden wealth didn't turn his head a bit. The Ponderosa foreman never knew he had as many friends as he did, all of them who have ideas how to spend his money.

But it's that stock that's the most troubling. The land development company is one big swindle selling easterners desert land sight unseen that's pretty worthless. Walter Brooke runs the company and he's one slick article and he gives Candy the sage advice of shut up and get wealthy.

A lot of people would take that advice and get wealthy. But Candy's got a lot of character and between him and the Cartwrights they figure out just how to take Brooke down.

This one is David Canary's episode. It all leaves him sadder and wiser and a bit in debt.
