Attack of the Gopher Gang!

Synopsis

Johnny Thunder rides shotgun on a stage on a plain, but the Gopher Gang pops up out of hidey-holes. JT is coshed from behind, his head bandaged. The Sheriff wishes his son, John Tane (JT's secret identity), would fight beside him rather than teach school. The Gopher Gang raids a bank. Sheriff Dad is hit, and JT tries to protect him, but is brushed off. JT fells the gang and reverts to John Tane - in a hat to cover his bruise! For the first time, the Sheriff wonders if his son is Johnny Thunder, but no, John is felled by a sign and clonked on the head! "I'll never be sure..."
