Wild Wild West

Night of the Camera, #6810

Agent West raids a local warehouse in an attempt to apprehend a suspected opium gang member. As he struggles with the suspect, a new secret agent named Bosley Cranston (Pat Paulsen) rushes in and attempts to help.
Unfortunately, he only makes matters worse, accidentally toppling a piano crate on the suspect and killing him. Cranston, however, is not the meek incompetent he appears and later surprises his colleagues with his karate skills and his popularity with beautiful women.

This was one of the episodes made with West teamed with various new agents. Ross Martin had suffered a heart attack and missed a season. Already a cast member of Laugh In, this was Pat Paulsen's only episode.
